i now find myself totally SPOILT for choice when it comes to taking photos.
a canon 60D and a brand spanking new lumix TZ20
after having my iphone for a few months, i've really started to enjoy taking pics on it
i'm particularly partial to INSTAGRAM.
if you don't know what that is, it's an iphone app, where you take the pic, apply a cool filter, add a caption, geotag yourself and post to facebook (and twitter if you have it - which i don't!)
it's pretty cool.
so here a few photos from my week - via my iphone
last saturday morning - all ready to get my 'craft on' at handmade 2011
i hand-stithced the victoria work box over 13 years ago, AND lined the basket!
the mayor of wellington opened the event
she was speaking as i arrived
an upcycled card from my first class
the words 'live, laugh and love' were punched out of an old dictionary and i doodled around the circles
gift bag made from an old children's book
in the afternoon i made a fabric basket - in less than TWO HOURS
from start to finish!!!
these machines are BRAND NEW
they're like the 21st century version of the one i have at home
push buttons instead of levers - WAHOO!!!
fully lined y'all...
the old fashioned photo booth
these things are so popular now - even DIY ones!
the gorgeous lounge at hippopotamus hotel where my crochet class was on sunday morning
it had been over 35 years since my grandmother had taught me to crochet and since i'd picked up a crochet hook, so it was quite an emotional reunion
but also like riding a bike - i've almost finished the scarf during the week and am planning on buying wool today and making beanies!
anyone else photograph lovely bathrooms they see in nice hotels?
nope - just me?
brand new store opened up in one of our malls
my daughter wanted me to take this to send to her friend who loves this store!
then on wednesday
HAPPY MAIL FROM OREGON!!!
the lovely kim aka the ungourmet sent me this box of lovely treats
THANKS KIM - I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR MY GOODIES!!!
(esp the huckleberry jelly beans - nom nom.....)
then last night at zumba, someone (miss 14!) stopped doing zumba long enough to grab my phone and snap me on stage!
that's me in the neon lime green and pink
with my arms in the air like that - i figure i'm either one step AHEAD of everyone, or one behind!!!
how was YOUR week?
