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.
