Early this year I was looking on You Tube for Diana Krall singing Boulevard of Broken Dreams. There were a couple of club performances but not very good quality. So of course I decided to make my own. Turned out to be a great learning experience and a lot of fun. I selected suitable photographs from my own collection. This evening when I was considering adding some of these photos to my blog I thought “Why not just post the video?” So here it is – Enjoy!
Some of My Favorite Photos Set to Music – a Video
Published by Guila Greer
I first learned how to sew as a child on my mom’s old treadle Singer (and wish that I knew where that machine is now!) and am now in love with my Berninas. While going to school, raising a family and enjoying two satisfying careers I continued developing my skills with all kinds of needlecrafts and eventually discovered the magic of quilting. Soon I began to stretch my imagination and creativity. This led to an interest in art quilting and I've been busy soaking up all kinds of techniques and adapting them to my creations. Now, I find myself on a journey to uncover, develop and to express the inner artist that I have so joyfully let loose. I have learned so many ways to create beauty in fiber and am eager to share this knowledge. I am in love with color - saturated vibrant color. I have also learned that there truly are no "quilt police" when it comes to one's personal expression of creativity; no right or wrong way. It just has to feel right and look right to you. it is all a voyage of discovery. I just can’t imagine doing anything else.” Several of my quilts, both traditional and art quilts have been displayed at Quilting in the Valley in Northridge, California, Lefferts Historic House and the Audubon Society in New York City. My work "Going Around in All the Best Circles" was juried into the Pacific International Quilt Show. I have shown in both local Fine Art Galleries and in Quilt Shows across the United States. I am the author of the blog: The Mystical Allure of All Things Fiber since 2007. In recent years I have uncovered a passion for writing - especially poetry - as well and have a lot of it on http://minervaspirit.com See: http://guilagreerart.com View all posts by Guila Greer

Guila, I loved it!! The photos and Diana Krall singing “The Boulevard of Broken Dreams” really compliment one another. Best of all it’s very calming.
Thanks Lil. It was fun to do. The beautiful autumn photos were ones that I took in Erie near where my Mom lived. Some of the winter scenes were Erie, the later ones were Minneapolis. The daisy bush near the end is in front of my house. So you got a little tour!
