Yes, I've made it!! Back at the beginning of last week I had wondered if I could keep listing, making, sharing, blogging every day but I've done it.
Quite a few people have asked if I'm going to carry on. Probably not at this frantic pace but I will keep blogging and sharing. I'll be making too but I have missed producing larger pieces. Crochet is so time consuming. It's also motivated me into having a set routine.
People have been so supportive. The daily comments have been great to read and I apologise for not replying. There have not been enough hours in the day.
My next project has got to be centred on my workspace. I've already chosen artwork so keep watching this space. But back to July.
Today's project is this,
It's on loan from my OH. I've got to be careful with it. Don't drop it. Make sure I put the lens cap back on properly. Switch it off when I've finished with it ..........
It's been a long time since I was eight!
By the time I'd recharged the batteries, found the right lead the best of the weather was starting to go. I thought I'd do an appraisal of my own, a round up of this month's work. I got everything out and started to take photos, some on my old camera and some on the new (to me) camera.
What do you think? New one first.
I think the new one is sharper. Neither of them have been adjusted so the light is better too. It's no contest with close work.
Again untouched. New first.
As soon as I'd taken everything outside it came to rain. The wind had picked up so the photos have been rushed because things kept flying off the table. They're almost action shots!
Just a few of the things I've finished this month. Phew!
I'll still need to play around with focus and stuff but it's a start and an improvement.
The listing today (taken with the old camera) is a lovely coral pink scarf made from an Amy Butler organic wool and cotton blend. It's a lovely yarn. I really like this scarf. I might keep it if it doesn't sell before relisting time. It's on Folksy and Etsy
It's been very quiet on Folksy but I've chosen two July Jewels. Their work hasn't been listed today but these are for all my followers.
The first is from Aunty Joan. Her cards are great. You should see her pirate cards! This one is for the party I feel like throwing.
The next one is from Ello Design. I think this pretty card speaks for itself!
As you can't have cards without flowers I'd just like to leave you with a little something.
Oops!! Wait while I just pick the camera off the floor. Is it meant to rattle like that? Where did I put that lens cap? Which is the off switch?
