before we delve into 'snippets of...', you will have to curtail your excitement for a few moments more whilst i mention a couple of things.
firstly. many many 'thanking you kindlies' for such words of encouragement you have given regarding my exploits with Mr Hook. i plan next week to bring you more adventures with him and dare i tell you... for i may send you into a giddiness that you haven't felt since first laying eyes on Colin Firth. perhaps i shan't tell you, perhaps i will keep the 'unveiling' of my crocheting 'helper' until next week... yes that's what i shall do, there will be no 'dare i tell you today'
(nothing like a cliff hanger)
secondly. it would appear a good deal of newcomers have taken up the challenge, and i fear there are others lost in the depths of my inbox that fills up daily. administration duties are not my forte, along with cooking, cleaning and generally anything else that doesn't involve yarn, thread, thrifting, fabric or doilies. so forgive me if you've been neglected and do give me another nudge. in the meantime for those that appear to be wondering 'what is the challenge?', i shall do an update next week on what it is and why i did it... a refresher course if you like.
thirdly. i go back to work on monday
"ha Tif! is that what you call it... messing around with Miss Ethel and some forsaken stuff that comes your way" i hear you cry.
well yes you do have a point but if i don't call it work then i don't really have a leg to stand on when my man comes home and asks what i've been up to. this week i've pushed it to the limits by being a layabout in pyjamas with yarn and hook in hand. i have several projects that have been looming on the horizon that are tres thrilling for moi and i am also hoping to get some new wares made for the little shop. i've had a couple of crafting epiphanies that got my heart quickening and i need to get my arse into gear and stop procrastinating.
now that's over and done with, we can move on to 'snippets of...'
for today's snippets i thought i would look back over 2009, a rather good year for dottie angel i feel. i have turned a few pages of my flickr album and put together a selection of images that i am actually rather pleased with... now this once again may appear that i have my 'boasting hat' on, but it really isn't.
it is me saying, sometimes i marvel at how Carlos my camera, achieves what he does. he's a basic little model and despite his name, does not appear exotic in any way. i have never read his manual and i have never twiddled with his bits. i just turn him on and point... (okay so that bit was a tad dodgy). of course i cannot take full credit for all my shots as the ones that have my body in them are in fact taken by Our #3, who also does not twiddle with Carlos's bits either, just does as i direct.
so that being said i give you
'snippets of 2009'
as my man remarked not so long ago... "just imagine what you could achieve if you actually read the manual Tif" and i am thinking he has a point... who knows, as 2010 is all about risk taking then perhaps i will.
she is wishing you a weekend of crafty endeavors, in pyjamas... she thinks that last bit goes without saying ~ Tif
