photo a day

photo a day

I started this about 11 days ago.  The challenge though: only can use my cell phone to take the photos and do any alterations.  No computer programs allowed.  I hope to be entertaining on some level.  Some of them are sort of personal, like yesterday's:

About once a year I have to have blood taken and have my thyroid tested.  The technicians have been taking my blood these past 12 years and I've never taken a photo before!  This challenge made me share this experience.  I hate needles; have had nurses not know what the ------- they are doing and leave me with bruises; and had to fast while pregnant.

Then other's are more artistic

Every once in a while I will try to blog about the photo in question.

I really want this be a personal experience.  This is my camera telling you what I see.  Enjoy!

Cute Crocheted Hat

A crocheted hat!

This festive lil'number took about two hours to complete, after approximately two hours of trial and error. Using these two sites


I began to figure it out. Two hard parts to accomplish: 1. remembering the lingo 2. getting the base size right.

But once that was mastered it went relatively fast, and I was able to incorporate at least three different crochet styles into the hat: a single, a half-double, and a double. PLUs this teaches you how to effectively use the "slip stitch"- a technique I had quite forgotten about.

The end product was then embellished with a two layer flower made from scraps of material. The flower is stitched directly to the hat with red thread. The two pearls are buttons from a craft box (Word to the wise: always keep buttons about; there are so many ways to use a button). The leaf-like pattern was done by threading green yarn in-and-out
