An Unexpected Modelling Assignment


Well today didn't turn out quite how I expected!

This morning I headed down to Seaport, Lower Manhattan, armed with my SLR, lenses and tripod - off to take photos of the latest knitted pieces designed by my friend Ivete at Chiagu. Not quite sure what happened but we ended up with me modelling the pieces and Ivete taking the photos!

Chamomile Infinity Scarf Knitting Pattern

is already available for sale on the Chiagu website so why not pop over and take a look for yourself? :)

Doesn't the pattern remind you of flying geese or is that just the quilter in me?

Other news today is that my friend Sarah from Jersey in the Channel Islands has launched her new children's quilt website

Quilt Candy

  Her work is just gorgeous so please read all about it on her blog and then pop over and give her your support at her website and on Facebook.



To round the day off nicely here's links to the latest posts on Plum and June's Let's Get Acquainted! Blog Hop

    1. Hi Sarah, I wasn't terribly comfortable doing the modelling but Ivete said I was great, think it's something I should really be leaving to Flicky though!!! No problem telling people about your website, it deserves to be shouted about and I'm glad to have 'met' you too :)
