I hope you are all having a good weekend,I've a great day today which I'll tell you about but first things first,I said on Thursday that I had nearly finished my crocheted cushion cover well it's finished and I'm so pleased with it in fact I love it and can't stop looking at it,lol. I taught myself to crochet a couple of months ago and have made a few small items but this is my first large finished project.
I bought this book called Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench.
There are some adorable projects in this book and is where I got the pattern for the Wavy Striped Cushion. I didn't use the yarn they suggested but some that I had already had which is Sirdar Sublime baby cotton kapok dk and a #5 hook. There are so many things I want to make from this book but want to finish my blanket first and also Kerry and Libby want me make them an apple cosy !!!!
Now about my day,I've been on a 3hour intensive photography course with Libby and Kerry which was run by SF Digital Photography. I've got a bridge camera and never take it off automatic so I just wanted to know the basics and start using manual. I think the three of us can say we have learnt a lot today and won't be using automatic again. We only had three hours but Oz got everything in that we needed to know so now it's just a matter of practise makes perfect. We had an hour outside to put into practise what we had learnt, my photo's are nowhere near perfect but are so much better than what they were.
Here are a few I took:
I'm really pleased with some of the photo's after only one hour tutuition as the only editing I've done is some cropping and I'm sure I can only get better with time.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for taking the time to look.
