weekending

My brother purchased an SLR this weekend and we played around with it. I really noticed the difference in the quality of the pictures compared to my point and shoot.

This little girl is fierce with her emotions. Loud and angry or bursting with joy — there’s no in between with this one. It’s a good thing I was on her good side today — she gives the best, biggest with her eyes squeezed shut, kisses ever. Sweetest. Thing. Ever.

These days, I’m really sweet on all things crochet. Sharing my yarn and hooky love with these inspiring links:

:: like Danielle’s vintage inspired bedspread — love the muted colours and flowery pattern.
:: and Lisa’s duo-tone bracelet tutorial made with yarn — I gotta make this!
:: or this fun idea to add crochet edging to a tea towel!
:: and finally this colourful burst of blooms has me inspired to really pick up hook and get back at learning how to do this wonderful skill properly.

I’ve tried to teach myself a few times. Maybe after the show, when I have some down time, I’ll take a class and learn properly. Yes. That’s exactly what I’ll do.

How about you? Have you got any plans or yearnings to learn a new skills or hobby? Do tell me!

  1. I really wish I could crochet. My grandmother is amazing at it, and gave me some cheap yarn and hooks, and I’m trying every once in awhile between classes to pick it up and give it a shot. I’m still hopelessly terrible. I wish you luck though! :’]

  2. Your photos look great — it’s is amazing what a difference cameras can make. I went through a crochet spell last spring and while I loved the results, I’m too much of a knitter to let it overtake my first love. BUT if I had the time (which I need to make), I’d love to learn how to weave on a loom. Fantasy!
