For the sake of history, lets pretend this blog is live)

Failed – lets face it as it is – attempt to destash the yarn. My only wish is for the weather to be stable enough throughout the day so we can actually wear sweaters. As of today the only time we wore these was when we took the pictures. Same goes for Echinoidea scarf – I’m wearing it at home just out of spite. It’s soft and comfortable, and I’m thinking of making a second one. And maybe a third.








It’s been really cold for the last week, and now, even though I’m sitting here wrapped in a fleece blanket, I’m still freezing(( So to warm up myself a little I decided to post a few summer pictures from the ones I haven’t posted before)

Here is Irina, the dear sister of my Natalie) I took these pictures last June when we were out of town at their country house, the weather was warm, and the summer had just started))



And as you have probably noticed, I’ve made my pictures 100px wider 😉 Since now all of them will be 900px wide)

I was doing a studio shoot with Victoria on Saturday. It was very nice to see her) Apperently, I do miss my friends more than I think I do.

To my shame, I haven’t been in studio since February. And, of course, I have forgotten all my skills about using the studio lighting, and I was moving so slow that I actually had no time at all to make something really good. I forgot to control a lot of tiny things like the brightness os position of background light. With my head working slower than it should have, I didn’t have time to find just right point of view or the good model pose. Definetely not the best of me. So this post and the next few pictures would be here to remind me what could happen if I shoot only occasionally and don’t improve my skills with constant practice. Though I’m consciously doing nothing about it while time goes by, but maybe at some point this post would shake me enough to start doing something.

So here is gorgeous Victoria 🙂 :



As you can see, though I forgot all about the studio I haven’t forgot to spent several hours the day before making accesories 😀



Well, watch and learn what you shouldn’t do 😀 See you)

видимо, это моя судьба – быть окруженной Наташами
