Today, I just threw together a post to share with you some
of the things I've been working on.
These are linen thread hearts I made following this pattern
Both hearts are crocheted with 100% linen thread. The spool of linen
is called "lace weight" and the tan heart is made from
"sport weight linen" which is
a little larger thread.
Of course, you don't have to use thread to crochet these cute little hearts.
I'm sure any type of yarn will work. You know me...I'm just into the
thread stuff right now. :-)
So, other than that, did you know I have an Etsy shop?
Well, more like a page with a banner and nothing for sale.
I started it a while ago thinking I would like to put some of
my handmade items in there.
Then, I got overwhelmed with the logistics and the fear that
no one would even be interested, so
it's been on the back burner for a while now.
The reason I even mentioned that is because I found this wonderful
tutorial for making a photo light box.
Living in the PNW can be tricky when it comes to photography and light.
The light box is also a nice way to photograph something you might
want to put into your Etsy shop.
The first 3 photos on this post I took using my new light box.
If you'd like to make one for yourself, you can find the tutorial I followed
Finally, here is the latest doily I made!
I'm using size 10 thread and the completed piece measures 10 inches across.
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. I just enjoy making them. :-)
I wonder if anyone would be interested in them
if I put some in my Etsy shop when I make one?
Or, I kind of thought about making a linen pillow and decorating it with
this piece. What do you think?
We have an early blooming Rhododendron in our yard.
Isn't it wonderful to see flowers this time of year?
Thanks for letting me share all of this with you!
I've been having fun learning new things about my camera
and trying to become more familiar with the post editing process in
It can all be a little overwhelming for me at times, so I hope you'll
hang in there with me as I learn!
Wishing you a fun and happy weekend!
