Week 30

Suzy FRIGGIN Homemaker.

Ok, let me start off by saying that I am a "creative person". I knit, I needlefelt, I take pictures. I do NOT sew. Never ever. I DO have thousands of pictures in my mind of things I want to make. Soooo.... I broke out the sewing machine. Originally, I just wanted to make Lola a cool coat. Is that too much to ask? I don't think so. So I did it. No more than 1 inch in a straight line.
Fancy, yes? No, not fancy at all.

So, I didn't put the sewing machine away. It just SAT there. TEMPTING me! Fiend, it KNOWS that anytime I touch it death is imminent. My bobbin gets tangled, It ends up with large amounts of sadness. Sad sad sad sadness. Despite that, I once again sat down in front of this device of torture. I have an addiction, a bad one. I love collars. I luuuuuuuurve them. So I made one. And it turned out OK. See?

Again, see?

Little bit more fancy. Yes?

So then I took it ONE step further. I wanted a martingale. I WANTED one. Yes, she already has a ton but none like THIS!

So, I guess the machine did not explode. I am making more collars tonight. Wish me luck. By the way, all collars made of things found around the house!

I am TWO weeks behind on posting 52 weeks shots here. Naughty Naughty Blogger! I have some other shots to share, but first the week 28 and 29.

 Week 28- We had another challenge that week, albeit one I don't think I quite met. Action Blur. There is a bit of Action blur in this one, but not enough to meet the challenge.

Week 29- Lola and I went on Operation Don't Get Caught, Blow Up or Shot . We went to the old army base where we are TECHNICALLY not supposed to be. Shhh! It's a secret. I plan to shoot there for the next couple of weeks, because there is a LOT of beauty in that old place!

Agility tonight for the first time in a few weeks! It is SOO hot, but I made Lola a cool coat so I hope that works.

Look! Look there...

Look at what?

That there.

 That is quite obviously a blog post.

 Yes, but ANOTHER one with no 52 weeks shot.

 Wow... the two voices in my head seem excited about this post that has nothing to do with 52 weeks. I like it when their pleased, I may have to do that more often.

 I wanted to share, first off, my new find. He appears to have fallen out of a truck. People continue to shock me. He is really sweet, and I hope to find his owner soon!
Newest find.

Cute, eh?

 I also wanted to report that Lola has done REALLY well in tonight's agility class. Whoo for below ninety temps.

Look! Shots not from 52 weeks!

Hello ladies and gents! Today I bring to you some shots that are NOT destined for 52 weeks! Yay! Lola has once again broken my tripod. Shame on her. That is tripod numero dos. Damn dog. Soo... to get this shot, I took out the dictionary. Meaning I sat the Camera on top of the dictionary.

Lola and I.

I also got some fun Boomer shots!


I have been in post processing funk lately. Sticking with a particular colour pallet,  Can't ya tell?

Isn't this a fun shot? I am rather fond of it, if I ever produce a CD, maybe it will be the cover. Very little editing, just cropped and made black and white. The sky is just blown out as hell. It happens... usually it is a bad thing. I wish that it was less grainy, but I do what I can.

We are now half way through the year. I really feel that I have improved since January. I am enjoying the process immensely!
