A New Banner.... Finally!

I've been on this little blogging adventure for right around 2 years now and I have finally created a new banner (that fits).
I enjoy many blogs and am always impressed by the beautiful banners and the frequency by which some wonderful bloggers change their banners. I tried to change my banner once... I was able to get a picture in the space, but couldn't make it fit the space provided.
Turns out I'm not as technically challenged as I thought!
I used a tutorial from V and Co.
My thanks to her!

This photo was a collaboration by HobbyHubby and me. We set up the quilt, the felted bag, and the knitting in progress right out in the herb garden between some basil and some lavender. (I have so many things to learn about photography!) I can't believe how easy it was to work with Adobe Photoshop to change the dimensions and add text to create the banner. I definitely have room for improvement, but I think it's a start!

What do you think? Go ahead, give me the good, the bad and the ugly comments!

Happy Hobbies!
