It’s that time folks! The winner of the lovely pack of 50 yds. of my homespun yarn is Brandi Hudman. Congratulations Brandi! If you email me at <firstname.lastname@example.org> with your snail mail address I can have this off in the mail right away. 🙂
I am going to have to think about my 500th post contest some in advance. Running out of unique ideas. Hmm…maybe a rug hooking kit. We’ll see.
I was busy on the weekend uploading more rugettes for sale in my Etsy shop. Check it out here!
I spent time reading lesson 2 of Beginning to Hook Abstracts again. Seems I need to read things several times before they sink in these days. Sigh.
I also spent time in the park with hubby taking photos. It was a very bright day and the photos did not turn out well, but I found one to post to the blog. Now I am motivated to go out when the weather warms up again and take some photos closer to sunset, when the light is not so harsh.
Speaking of photography, I have been browsing those photography books I took out of the library last Sunday. They are interesting, but some of them are not suitable for my purposes. I had great hopes for Low Budget Shooting, but determined it was not going to work for my purposes. It encourages you to build your own equipment. I do not have time for that.
Of the three books the one that is most useful for me at this time is The Complete Guide to Digital Photography by Michael Freeman. He covers the whole gamut from understanding and using your camera to the work flow process, editing, and techniques for shooting photos of different types.
So…plans for today?
- tutor an ESL student,
- spend the afternoon hooking Lost Soul, and
- working on an exercise in Beginning to Hook Abstracts,
- and attending a group ESL tutoring session.
Hope everyone has a great start to the week. 🙂
