About Me

My photo
Crafts have always been a big part of my life. They have been my obsession yet kept me sane. My latest obsession is crochet. Wool and the finished products have taken over the house. A blog seems like the next step in my woolie journey wherever that takes me. Feel free to pop in and see what I am up to.

Cowl Production Line!

Sometimes I feel the art of creating and making takes the least amount of time when it comes to presenting the work to the public!  Why, you might ask, would I think that?  And this is why...

I spent two days making 10 cowls. (That was my experiment to see how many I could get done in two days). It then took me two days to photograph them (many excuses/reasons why it took so long - otherwise known as life and the Irish weather) and a further day to get them uploaded onto the lap top (more excuses too insignificant to list) and it will take another day to edit and upload on line and probably another day to write descriptions and list said cowls in the shop. In hind sight, me thinks I should have included the photographing, unloading, editing and listing in the original experiment!

Ten new crochet cowls.

I have to say though that I am pleased with my new set up for photographing on the wire frame.  I've found that the high swivel chair in the studio is perfect to prop the black canvas on and the wire frame sits on the seat in front at just the right height.  It means that I can place the chair anywhere in the garden and catch the best lighting. Previously I was propping things on the boiler and everything was in danger of falling and the light was poor.

It really makes the colours 'pop'.
