A Diversion

As the latest issue of the Yarn Forward Magazine is out now, I feel able to show you a selection of the images I took at the photo shoot..what fun we had that day back in February. I am looking forward to seeing a copy of this magazine!

Could someone send me some energy please...I am totally pooped!

~*~

Happy Birthday Emilia! 7 today..hip hip hooray!!

I am making a Cornish Pasty Pie for tea. I went into Waitrose and asked the butcher for some chuck steak. She asked me if I was doing a Delia, 'she always tells you to use chuck steak in her recipes'. Apparently, braising steak will be fine as the pie is cooked for a fair old time. Anybody else 'doing a Delia?'

Happy happy Birthday Emilia! Sending all manner of BD wishes to you!

What a fabulous whack of photos! and I'm really liking some of those patterns!

Waving my magic wand... feeling more energized? ;^D

Sorry, I have no spare energy to send, take it easy! That is typical that I didn't re-subscribe to YF as the patterns look lovely!

Happy Birthday Delia! I'll bet you DO need some energy -- good luck on your exciting week ahead. I'll be thinking of all of you!!! And thanks for the recipe link -- it looks awesome!!!

Happy Birthday Emilia! I'm not doing a Delia but i am having home-made soup when I eventually get home tonight!!

No clue what "doing a Delia" is, but sending some energy (wind- and hydro-power, naturally) from the Pacific NW! What gorgeous pictures of gorgeous projects - I hope I can find YF here somewhere to check out your lovely shots!

Rosie said...

The photos in Yarn Forward are so good...and the pic of you in it is lovely, too!
All my spare energy is coming your way! Things that can energise me when I'm exhaustipated: sucking a slice of lemon; inhaling grapefruit essential oil; a few drops of rescue remedy; a quick shower; having a laugh with friends (have you been over to the KTog group on Ravelry and seen our film plot?)

No, I cheated tonight and bought a chicken tonight sauce. It was horrible - so bad that we all threw our tea in the bin and ate beans on toast instead. That'll teach me!

New Yarn Forward is great, love the photos.

photos look fabulous, I shall look forward to leafing through a copy x

I've done a few Deliah's cheats so far, her chocolate cake is delish and the chilli beef is really simple to make. Sorry, I have no energy to spare right now, Friday tomorrow, yay!

Those pictures are wonderful, can't wait to see them in the magazine :)

Rosie made me smile when she wrote 'exhaustipated', I thought that was a Marianne-ism!

Emilia had a wonderful day yesterday, she had a party and they all made fairy wings, tomahawks and native american headresses...glitter and feathers everywhere, even in Sullivan's hair! lol

See you very very soon xxx

1 week today....

Nora said...

Oh darling, that's how I felt before the wedding. Just carry on at your own pace...

Wishing I could send you some energy but sending you lots of love instead. x

You did a great job on the photography - I esp. like the Bling Socks, but then I would say that! All the patterns look great.

Good luck for the Big Day.

Love the photos, and also feel pooped out with the anxiety I went through for my last unpro photo-shoot.
We got some ok photos, out of the hundred or so we took, but by accident I fear!

What are your rates, if I was to hire you to do my photos? I often submit to on line mags and am responsible for photos. My own cost a lot up front for clothes and make-up anway, so spending extra on photography might be good for me. Email me if you provide a service erssiemajor@yahoo.co.uk
