Work & Photos

Since the age of 18, I have worked at least one job.  Sometimes I have had s even two, and  with trying to  go to school.  In June,  when I quit my job to move into our new house and spent the summer together as a family, all the while enjoying my longest stint of unemployment.  So once school started,  I needed to find a job and my unemployment hiatus came to an end.  I  am so very grateful for the  kind words friends and past employers shared enabling me to find a new work.
 Last week, I started a new job, working in customer service and another working with children.  Yep, two jobs once again.   We will be adjusting to a new rhythm...

Continuing to work on my etsy shop, I decided it is time to spend some time improving my photos.  Trying to be bold and creative, I had an idea what if I incorporated my clothesline....

I even got up on a step ladder to get a better angle....


still a work in progress...

Enjoy!

Green Pastures Doily

While working on my shop last week, I finished and blocked my latest doily, Green Pastures...

I thought it would be fun to capture a picture during the soaking process...

and here it is...
experimenting with camera settings...
adjusting speeds, no flash that kind of thing...
Voila! 



Enjoy!

Hannah the Handful

We are dog sitting for my dad again.   My dad has two dogs,  a Scottish terrier named Igor (Egor) and a German Wired Hair Pointer Puppy named Hannah.  Hannah is almost a year old, and a full out crazy hyper puppy.  She does great outside running in our backyard (thank goodness), here she is after a few hours outside....

She is very sweet and cute.  

While she is inside the house, she needs to stay in her room (a crate),  otherwise things like this could happen...
This is what we came home to on Saturday after a trip to the Farmers Market.   

She escaped from her room and had so much fun.  As you can see she got into some of my thread, and some of Orla's toys... 

We have quite a few causalities....
missing limbs and wings but kitty got it worst of all. 

 She got a hold of my crocheted potholders...
Now I have to make some new potholders.  

Needless to say for the rest of her visit all doors will be closed and toys safely put away.  

Enjoy!
