Keep up, Petra!

I'm so terrible at keeping up with my blog, but I don't want to be. Due to my lack of blogging I have lost alot of readers and I really don't want that to happen again.

Luckily I was inspired the other day by Little Jess Knits post about organizing your blog better. I really like the schedule that she made up so I'm going to use it, but swap the Tattoo Tuesday for Snap Happy Tuesday to show some of my photography as it is something that I love to do aswell.
So the schedule I will try to keep will be like this:

Snap Happy Tuesday: Photography update, will also hopefully give me an incentive to go out and take more different photographs.

W.I.P. Wednesday: Every wednesday I will talk about what I'm working on (knit, crochet) and how it's progressing.

Inspiration Friday: A post of things that I have encountered that have inspired my creative mind. (I have a lot of ideas going round up there so maybe this way I can keep track of them aswell).

Planning sunday: Showing what I will be doing in the coming week.


As today is Snap Happy Tuesday I will put in a few of my recent images. This week I'm showing a few that I took while out on a walk with my daughter Violet.

The "Gaia" effect.
Barbed wire. Still have to work on getting used to manual focus with this lens.

Vi didn't want to smile so I asked her to frown instead, haha.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy my posts! :)

Something new

I got a free magazine from Dave's mum a few weeks ago and it had a section with free cardmaking paper with it (I don't know the technical term for the paper) so I thought I'd give it a go.
I made this card with it for my sister's birthday. I don't think it turned out too bad :) It would have been alot better if I had a stanley knife or a proper paper cutter of some sorts as it is hard to get the edges completely straight with scissors!

Luckily Violet had some pinking scissors (I had to look up the name for these as I just call them zigzag scissors, ha!) so I could cut out some nicer edges here and there.
I loved the theme of the paper. Very vintage 1940's WWII era style :)



I scraped the edges of the card with scissors to give it a more worn look, it was a happy accident really, but I ended up liking it.



Who knows it might be something I will do more often. It was fun making it!
Thanks for visiting! :)

Heel and gusset

Another picture, but this time showing the gusset that has no hole in it for a change! Really happy with that as it puts such a downer on the feel of being finished when you've got a hole!

One done, one to go.

Finally finished the first one a few days ago and now I'm 3/4 into the second one.
Luckily this time it's progressing alot faster as I've remembered most of the charts :)

I've never added pictures via Flickr so I have no idea what I'm doing or how I can put more then one in a post, haha.
