so i need to write this in note form it is 1.26am and i need to sleep but before i go...
new camera was faulty. got a replacement (very reluctantly on the shops part but i perservered and they agreed). it so happened that they replaced it with a demo model which was scratched and had been used. i complained. eventually (yesterday) a brand new one arrived. 3rd time lucky!
I have been so busy. i still haven't begun editing Easter holiday photos! I've been shooting for a local Theatre Company, doing headshots, trying fashion photography ..... no sewing for ages and i need to begin soon but never a moment to spare. Next week it is Iris' birthday. I need to get her a present but don't know what to buy...
we have been offered a free place to stay in Annecy, France for two weeks. I am sooooooooo looking forward to that...and tomorrow I'm doing another Dusthouse shoot for the RSC...goodnight!

new toy

I am so so so happy. Today my new camera arrived and even though I can't upload my photos to my mac yet (they forgot to enclose the software cds) i cannot believe how good the image looks! :)

giant Lunos

Finished these two this morning... another 3 to make. Excuse the dust we've just had a wall knocked down!
Spring has finally sprung and the daffodils are out so hope sun follows next week as we are off to Cornwall for 10 days :) hope to catch up with some special people.
Have toothache again :( but am going to visit the dentist in the morning... :(
And the children break up for Easter tomorrow!
Have entered some photos into a local competition. Really hope to win the £1000 prize, especially as I am buying a canon 5Dmk2 tomorrow!

still here

its been a while since i blogged. so much going on. after manically sewing non stop last year i've decided that i haven't got the will to make stuff anymore ...well not so much stuff. Also my photography is taking off. Slowly. but nonetheless its what i LOVE. I have been shooting in collaboration with Dusthouse for the RSC and enjoying every minute. Tomorrow I'll be on location doing film stills for Romeo and Juliet :)
Yesterday was World Book Day and Iris wanted to go as Alice in Wonderland so I made her a pinafore from a bed sheet. see photo above.
Now I'm off to clean the house, the builder knocked down a wall and there is dust everywhere. All is good. Have an order for egg cosies and chickens to do....

We have SNOW :)

I was reunited with my very old skool wellingtons which my dad found in a cupboard in his garage :)
I just can't get back into doing any work! I'm watching crap tv and I'm quite enjoying myself! There are a few print ideas swimming around in my head and I have started a sketch book...
oh and we've been sledging everyday on our hills :)
and I've taken lots of photos :)
