last night i got into the granny square thing with the idea being i would make a blanket out of larger squares. so i made mustard and i made purple but now i cant decide if i want to use them together.
finally got my sweet spuds kit yesterday, but im struggling to be inspired by it. managed this layout using a photo from the dolly meet:
had a little crafty spending spree yesterday. i want to make stockings for me and marcus so bought some fabric, plus i intend to do little embroidered, stuffed christmas trees as gift tags. after watching tutorials on youtube, i croched (sp?) my first little granny square. i ran out of yarn which is why its so small, but im going into town today to buy a huge ball for cheaps.
i had to share this photo from the other day. if you look at the left side of the roof, you can see a whole flock of birds. just sitting. chilling.
so i fiddled with my camera, took batteries out, cleaned contacts etc and sometimes the shutter opens, depending on how i press the release. now i need to get paid so i can buy another film to try. im still not happy that i risk losing shots because of a faulty release..
another set of nights this week starting tonight. also 2 more next week. thats 3 weeks running. daytime???? whats that!?
i took my new camera into a repair shop in town and the shutter mechanism is broken and apparently unfixable. ive sent an email to the lady i bought it off but looks like i may need to take it further via ebay.
made another pumpkin pie today to take to a family lunch. added cinammon this time and it went down very well. then we all went to the country park where the above photo was taken. i also took my new polaroid but all my photos came out black so im not sure where im going wrong. i dont want to use too many shots figuring it out as they cost so much!
i bought both sets of tags from 2 posts previously. not sure what im going to do yet as they're too cool to use, although they do scream 'mini book'. what of i dont know.
still waiting for my sweet spuds kit. im trying so hard not to buy new stash so i need the goodies in this so i can play!!
wow look at these amazing tags. i just had to get them! you can find them here and they are designed by michelle clement. also check out the most amazing christmas range from sassafras lass. its called Life at the Pole is the most adorable christmas range i think i have ever seen! this first image is stamps!
my mum loved her surprise last night :) me and my sister took her out for a meal and then on to see a guy called Colin Fry who is a medium with his own tv show. he's fab. even i quite like the guy. no one came through for her but she didnt mind. i was quite tempted to hit someone sat in front of us at one point as she'd got a fit of the giggles which lasted 10 minutes at the most inappropriate time. really annoyed me.
got 2 packs of fuji instant film today so hopefully i'll have a play with those later!!
so here's a pic of all the girlies together! we got plenty of strange looks from people sat nearby but who cares! i definitely felt more drawn to the dolls with fantasy/bright hair, so i think if i get another she'll have to have funky hair.
