I’ve been churning out some Obsession Scarves for the shop. Perhaps ‘churning’ isn’t the best word for the creative process. How about ‘joyfully stitching’? I so want to get the shop up and running, but there are photos to be taken, pricing to figure out, mailing costs – oh my goodness. As for photos – the skies have been a tad gloomy for the past two days and not the best for picture taking.
I’m suddenly aware of color – true color – lately. I want the photos to show the real colors and, frankly, that’s not always easy. For example, the pinkish tone in the to scarf is a little off, it’s a deeper color. That will be the challenge.
I’m experimenting with the opacity of the watermark on my photos. This is better.
Yarn is beautiful, isn’t it? The fibers, the softness. These variegated skeins are perfect for the Obsession Scarf.
Theses roses are stunning. They were part of a mixed bouquet that included the pink alstromeria – from Trader Joe’s. Mixed bouquets can be a wonderful way to spread flowers out throughout your home…a little here…a little there.
Yellow brightens up the house on a gloomy day.
I love Blogger but I’m having some doubts lately. The cancellation of Picnik, the push for everyone to join Google+, the problems with comments, blogs being taken down as spam or for some other reason – it all makes me nervous. I haven’t had any problems yet, knock on wood, but I know plenty of people who have. I’m researching WordPress. We’ll see.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments about Old Man Winter! I loved reading them. Seems like most of us have a love/hate relationship with this season. We had rain all day yesterday and our pretty snowfall has turned to mud. A depressing landscape, indeed.
Have a great Tuesday!
