Sofas, Tables and Tatting....

I spent last night struggling with Tessie over what kind of sofa she wanted....She is still searching.

So while she is doing that, I decided to go on and build a new table for the breakfast nook in the bay window.

If you are interested in doing one of these, there is a tutorial for the whole thing here. I made the new one so that I could take off the top cloth. I am not sure that I like the pink and white check. Neither is Tessie....She says, "It's too girly!"I am still finding it difficult to take photos of the kitchen. With the light, it is too bright.

Without it, it is still a bit on the dark side. I will keep at it. Hopefully, I will get on to the sofa for tomorrow. I will approach Tessie with a whip and a chair and get her to choose one.

On to the tatting part. I am a winner! Pamela, at "Tatting and Other Nonsense" had a drawing last week. I won one of the prizes. It came in the mail yesterday. This is it! A beautiful necklace. It is one of her many original designs. She makes all kinds of fabulous jewelry, masks and other pieces. They are on sale in her Etsy shop. If you are interested in seeing more, go to her blog. From there you can get to her other site on Etsy. Thank you so much Pamela! It is perfect!

I am off now to go sofa shopping. There will be a tutorial as soon as Tessie makes up her tiny little mind!

See you tomorrow.

have you tried covering the light with fabric, like a shade, or putting it outside the room?

Good idea JJ. I will try covering it with something to reduce the glare when photographing. I need to ask what settings he used when he photographed the Clockwork Caravan. His came out perfectly fine.

Oops! I was refering to Seth's photos.

Or try turning off the camera flash when using the light.

That necklace is fabulous!

Dale, I don't use a flash, so that option is out. It's just that these lights are made for stronger purpose than minis. They are great with the naked eye, just not with the camera.
