Anyway enough of my humorous whinging ;) My husband gave me the gift of a photography course for my birthday last month and whilst completely out of my comfort zone to attend a class with strangers i must admit it has been the best thing i have ever done (for myself) i have met some great people and I am really enjoying the learning and adding to my knowledge about a hobbie/interest i have had since a very young age and now finally getting the opportunity to pick someones brains about elements i was having trouble with (mainly indoor pics!!) and getting tips on how to improve on what i already do well with and all in a fun/casual atmosphere so much so that i intend to enrol in their landscape course next !
I thought i would share some pics i took whilst wondering around the waterfront with Cooper last week. Nothing out of the ordinary but Cooper won't let you take his photo so the seagulls were my next best option and they are not scared of humans so great for photography practice.
For some reason i like this one just wish i hadn't chopped off the seagulls legs, would have been much better, luckily theres always a next time :)
I made Tuscan Hot Chocolates the other night and with my new indoor/night photography tips managed to get some pics that didn't come up horrendously yellowish… more importantly the hot chocolates were sickeningly delicious !!
I also finished my poncho and matching beanie on Thursday so this is also a taaaaahhhhh daaaaahh post….
Really pleased with the finished result
I used Moda Vera Wool from Spotlight
The colours came up fabulous together sorry i didn't keep the labels so i don't know what they are.
the poncho i added in 10 extra chains at the beginning and few extra rows
I made this for a one year old.
The hat i added in one extra increase row and two extra rows and two extra band rows.
This is Cooper letting me know he is sick of waiting for me to finish taking pictures of the poncho
and he must be really over it cause he hates getting his photo taken and here he is actually trying to get me to take his picture …. a little bit of progress even if it means having King Pig in the shot :)
I felt Cooper may be ready to try (again) to pose for me so i talked him into putting down the angry bird toys and actually managed to direct him a little to get a few cute pictures … only a few !!
On the cake front I am starting the cake for a 21st Birthday in 2 weeks, the theme is the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Starting the gum paste decorations tomorrow and I am quite excited about this cake, well I will be if it turns out how I imagine …. fingers crossed ;)
Thanks for stopping by
Have a great day
