Full Frame Goodness!
So my husband and I recently decided we wanted to move up from a cropped frame sensor camera Canon 20D, to a full frame camera Canon 5D Mark I. This may not make a lot of sense to most of my readers. It basically means that I now can get more out of all the lenses I already have. I LOVE my new camera. I can’t wait to experiment with all the possibilities that come with it. Here are some photos taken with the Mark I.
I have fallen back in love with crochet. I love knowing both how to knit and crochet. The last year I have focused completely on knitting you could call me a bit knit obsessed if you like.
Recently, most likely due to the warm and sunny weather, I have rediscovered my love of crochet. It feels so freeing to be able to whip up summery accessories. Here is a dainty lace headband I crocheted. I am hoping to have a pattern for this available in the near future.
Just in case you were wondering yes those ARE feather extensions! I figured out how to put them in myself and have been feathering many of my friends hair. It is so much more reasonably priced when you do it yourself. I will try to get a blog post including a how-to soon. Or you can just come over have a cappuccino and let me put some in for you!
Latte art! I love cappuccinos…being a mom of three sometimes I will have several a day. I have been practicing my art. Here is a pic of my most recent cappuccino with latte art
For those of you who knit only do not be distressed I have not abandoned my knitting for my renewed love of crochet. Here are a pair of fingerless gloves I knit up recently. I will be working out the kinks in the pattern and then be posting them for testing. These were knit up in “Knight” color-way by SkeinYarns on Etsy. I cannot get enough of her yarn. This is the marino/cashmere blend, seriously the softest yarn I have EVER used.
Also a pic of me and my girl. Sweet Fiona who loves to eat dirt, wear skirts and flowers in her hair, and destroys anything she comes in contact with. I love this girl!
Wow, you knit, crochet and do amazing latte art. 🙂 Love the crocheted headband!
I love you! This is awesome!.
and Lizzy says hi and likes your blog too.
mom of three myself, just found your blog – love the patterns (although I don’t knit), love the crochet headbands, and I might just need to snag myself some of those GORG alabaster peacock earrings… but the feather extensions… oh my. they are exactly what I have been looking for. would love to see a diy or tutorial, or if you have complete strangers round for coffee… 😛
Actually I love having complete strangers over for coffee so if you end up in the Sequoias let me know 🙂 I have been meaning to do a DIY for the extensions…maybe I will try to get one done this week!
Cool! I also convo’d you on etsy about the earrings – hope that was ok!
Totally fine I keep forgetting to convo you back. SORRY! I can totally make you some earrings. Do you want gold findings or silver?
Awesome! Silver 🙂
If you email me I will remember to do them. Sorry life is REALLY crazy right now. firstname.lastname@example.org
