Off-Week



an unintentional week off blogging ~ life gets in the way sometimes

quite a bit of crochet happened, I am working on a design in yellow, white and grey tones. a new cute flower square pattern is in the making too. and there is big news on the Catania Grande subject...

on an inspirational note, have a closer look at the picture above: embroidered cheerios by Kate Jackson. yes, embroidered cheerios. to read more about this and stunning paper towels too, have a look at her beautiful blog. If you are in the area you should consider a visit to Studio Huddle to see her work, on till April 28.

even though it was cold, we saw a lot of sunshine last week and weekend which we enjoyed a lot. oh and I made a new cover for Floyd's dog bed. it now matches the pillows I made for our couch, stylish dog, right?

see you soon for a big and exciting Catania Grande update

    1. Hi Kirsten, thank you very much! Hmmm it's hard to tell in this text box what I do when taking pictures. A few basic things I never let go: always use daylight, mix close ups and overviews, look everywhere around you for color combinations and use them in your pictures. These pictures are all taken with my iPhone 4s and edited with a simple light filter on my phone. Nothing fancy, but a lot a lot of practice :). I hope this helps!
