Good afternoon Folks,
It is a sunny Sunday afternoon, 75 right now. I was puttering in my gardens this morning, and ended up ‘sweating’, in January. It is just beautiful out though. This is why all the northerners come down this time of year.
I have to tell you I would much rather take pictures of flowers and butterflies than take pictures of my pieces to put on Etsy. I’m having a hard time with the colors coming out right. I know too that everyone’s monitors will show different colors. I’m a point and shoot lady, and tried my hand at manual and apertures etc. today, because I wasn’t happy with the colors with point and shoot. They were a little better with the manual setting, but I’ve got much to learn. Sheesh! If any of you photographers out there have any tips, I need help. Pretty please and thank you.
Below are pictures of three crocheted needlebooks I made.
The first one is ecru, that wasn’t too hard to get. Embellished with a mocha colored crocheted and beaded flower and an antique mother of pearl button.
This is a sage green with a grassy green on the inside, very hard to get. I had to do some color tweaking when editing. Embellished with a creamy crocheted and beaded flower and an antique button.
This one was the hardest. It is a deep burgundy color thread, black interior. Embellished with an ecru crocheted and beaded flower and an antique mother of pearl button.
You have to have decent photographs to show your pieces so I’ve more learning to do.
Now after that flustering photo session, I went out to take pictures of blooms.
Below is ‘Mm. Laurette Messimy’
Here is DH’s work on the caravan floor. He has finished painting the ‘faux’ tiles, two coats, now he’s ready to paint on two or three coats of polyurethane. He wanted to get the floor done before he brings in and sets up the refrigerator, stove and sink. Then he can make the counter for those things. There’s still quite a bit of work to do, and every step done brings us that much closer to completion. He used that cushion to kneel on while he painted.
That’s it for now. I’ve got to get pizza dough going in the bread machine and get the Italian sausage and sauce cooked and simmering. Kale will be added to the sauce again. We enjoyed that when I tried it before.
Hope you all have a great week. May we all remember to be thankful for our many blessings. May we learn from mistakes, and keep on growing graciously.
