Busy Bee


I've been very busy the last few days, hence my lack of posting. I've been doing mainly three things:

1) Learning photoshop: Where I work they run courses regularly. It's amazing what you can learn when a real person tells you, rather than a book.

2) Learning pattern cutting: The lady who gave me a few lessons back in the summer is now running an official course. I've signed up along with BillieJane and her daughter. It's been great fun, and it's amazing what you can learn when a real person tells you, rather than a book.

3) Making a new blog for my allotmenteering pursuits. I got the idea from LucyLocket. Thankyou Lucy! It's mainly for my own records, but what is knowledge if it isn't shared. But don't rush there just yet, still a bit of tweaking to do and a post to write.

And now I have to make dinner and go out. No rest for the wicked.

Three fantastic projects! Pattern cutting? I'm about to inherit my Gran's sewing machine so that sounds very useful.

Off to peep at your 'lotment blog.

By the way, what a marvellous proect in your last post too - such a treasure.

Oooh, I'm VERY interested to learn Photoshopping. We have some tutorial DVDs from which No.1 has learned a lot, like how to turn her hair purple in photos, and how to completely remove someone she doesn't like from a photo!

Off to check out The Marmalade Patch now. Well done you!

A 'lottie blog sounds like a good idea - but I know myself, if I blogged it I'd not do any work on it!

Off to look at yours though ...
