Busy day!

Well today has been a very, very busy day for me! i have been listing things on etsy and folksy all day now and learning how to take better pictures of all my amigurumis with the new camera so i am well and truly ready for my bed! i went for a lovely walk just before with a friend of mine and it was just so nice to be out in the fresh air with Hamish. Hamish hasn't been getting out as often as he should in the winter months due to the dark nights and weather, so he has put on a few pounds (and me too!) so we are just getting back on track now!
At the moment i am designing a new amigurumi tortoise, it is pale green with a gorgeous hot pink (to make the boys wink) shell - Lovely!! piccie to be added upon completeion x

Im back!!!

After what seems like months since posting, i am back into designing and making amigurumi! i have been very busy recently with my day job (boooo) as there are big changes coming. To be honest i am just grateful to still have a job, with all the redundancies that i have been hearing about recently.
To my husbands relief I have transported all my crafting materials up to our attic conversion, which acts as a sort of warehouse for all my fabric, wool and stuffing etc.I was starting to take over the house and it got to the point where we were eating our evening meal watched by a box full of amigurumis!
one of my main problems with placing things on etsy has been my picture quality, as the flash on our camera decided to break down last year. I have been using the camera on my phone, which is fine, but it is soooo small and awkward to use.I have been after getting a camera for ages now, but never seem to have the spare cash to actually go out and get one. To my surprise on mothers day Rosie presented me with a little bag, and in it was - yep, you guessed it, a camera!!!! i was so pleased with it and haven't been able to stop using it!
Lately my amigurumi making has really picked up again, and i have been really, really busy making a tortoise, some lovely octopus and three cute owls which will definately be going up for sale in my etsy shop. i am really pleased that i have my new camera as now people will be able to see the stunning coulours i have used to make them.
