One of my "big" tasks for this year is to take new photos for all my current designs, and get all my shops looking their best with snazzy new pics. I'm still not brilliant at taking photos, but I've definitely improved over the years and some of the older listings definitely need a bit of a revamp. Plus there were all those days when I took a "temporary" photo to get something listed quickly and never got around to going back and taking a fancier one (tsk tsk).
I'm hoping to have a few big photo-taking sessions later in the year, but in the meantime I'll be snapping a few pics here and there on sunny days and updating my shop listings when I can. I just got the first listing updated today - the large red poppy brooch.
It's very exciting to see how the patchwork squares look sewn together, and to start to get an idea of how the finished blanket will look.... and, of course, it will be so much easier sewing the squares together / sewing in all the ends bit by bit instead of having to do it all in one go at the end of the year.
Plus, though I've always loved the idea of knitting this blanket I have to admit that I was a little bit worried about ending up with a very strange looking object at the end of it, but I think all those mottled blues and greys look rather lovely together.
