Hey folks! Today Bec, Jane, and I had a craft day which was heaps of fun ^_^ I only made two granny squares though (slacker!) so I thought I would share with you my progress into the month of craft photos challenge, inspired by Robbie's wonderful photos for the same.
Here is the challenge list
I recently got a new photo app for my phone; I really wanted to get Instagram but it won't work on my cheap phone ; _ ; so I got Lightbox instead. I still really want to get Instagram (maybe on my next phone ...) but I thought I'd embrace the underdog and have some fun experimenting with all the different filters while completing this challenge. I've only done three so far!
This is my work-in-progress; a Crochet Today pattern (May/June 2010 for those that want to know) which is a re-print of a pattern from the 50s. My motifs are a bit smaller than the pattern advises (I'm using a thinner yarn, smaller hook, and have a quite tight tension) so I'll be making a few more than recommended. I've made four motifs so far, a bit of which you can see in the top corner. The motifs are joined as one does the final row which is an interesting method that I haven't done before.
This is my favourite drink ^_^ Bubble Tea! (I'm obsessed!). I used the fish-eye filter on this one which I think suits it quite well. This flavour was watermelon with green apple jelly and you can see that I had already drunk quite a bit before snapping this photo ~_^ You can also see a corner of my pirate skirt in the top corner ^_^
And this is something new - Octavia, my new Thumpy Thump (what a name, right?) Blythe Doll. She's very pretty and has awesome purple hair ^_^ The background is also new; it's a vintage tablecloth, but it's new to me! It has a lovely cross-stitched border.
How was your weekend? Want to join me in this photo challenge? ^_^
