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.

Freedom Friday!

First Friday I've had to myself in a long while and it's been so nice!

I had to go into work for a few hours this morning but was home again by 11.30.  The house was still warm and very welcoming on a cold and sleety morning.  Determined not to waste the day I zipped through a bit of housework (a rare enough occurrence!) and FINALLY got to take the last of the photographs of my new designs.

Christmas was busy.  I had a stall at the two day Sligo Fayre and I sold quite a bit and got some orders for Christmas.  Friends and family were very supportive and the Etsy shop was quite busy.  So all in all the lead up to Christmas was a bit crazy!  In the quiet time between Christmas and going back to work, I have been working on new designs for 2013.

Last week I managed to get a few shots of them on my usual model who was home for a few days between returning from the USA and going back to university to complete her fourth year (having a hard time getting my head around this - 4 years!!!). They turned out really well despite the wind and the cold, but I still needed some detailed shots.  It's hard to do that during the working week and it's a job that has to be done in natural light or the colours look wrong.  So with the help of white boards to reflect light and canvas backdrops and my antique wire frame and some ingenious balancing acts inside the patio doors, I think I have enough to complete the Etsy listings.
