I've been sewing quite a bit these past couple months, but I was so busy during January fulfilling orders that I didn't have time to post many new headcoverings. Most of February was spent recovering from January, and designing new coverings, but I never got around to photographing and posting them. My goal these past few days has been to photograph and post the three dozen or so new coverings I made last month.
Yet I kept running into a challenge. My photographer is Paul and as a full time law student he doesn't have a huge amount of patience with standing around snapping picture after picture of me until I'm happy with the results. I just can't quite convince him to spend an hour getting five (hopefully) good pictures of each covering (an hour would be quite a few covers, just to be clear!), when he has a ton of reading to do and briefs to write.
So during nap time today I ventured outside alone, with a cardboard box that had been full of wipes, a large container of wipes, a book, my camera and a headcovering. After stacking the wipes, box, book and camera carefully on the edge of our balcony I set the auto capture on the camera at ten seconds and starting snapping pictures.
I found myself liking the pictures where I was looking down the most (I just realized that tonight when I was picking my seven favorite pictures for this post) because you can't tell how sleepy my eyes look. It's that first trimester complete and utter exhaustion shining through and I'm ready to trade it for that second trimester glow (yeah... I have a ways to go!). And the second trimester energy boost that has always accompanied my favorite trimester.
And so here are my favorite pictures from today's photo shoot. I have enough headcoverings to take pictures of 7-8 coverings for the next four days (and who knows how many more I have in the office... I only counted the ones that were in my bag).
My new goal is to have 150 different covers on my site. When I finish this week I ought to be pretty close to that goal. Today's covers were some of my favorites. They were the ones I picked because they remind me of summer! I hope you like them!
And for those of you who are waiting for my convertible headcoverings in lace, they're coming! I'm planning on making one in each color in lace, although I don't have them all made yet! At least a dozen of the coverings I have yet to post are convertible too, so more options are on their way! Here are the latest:
This one reminds me of summer picnics by a lake... and Fourth of July Barbeque's...
Adds a Punch of Color to a Simple Outfit
Perfect for an Evening Out!
Shimmering Purple! Perfect for Lent and Advent!
One of my new goals has been to use each fabric that I have to make three different headcovering. I haven't quite done this with all my new fabrics, but I'm working on it. Here's an example of three of my favorites (I kept one of each for myself because I liked them so much!) in a beautiful brocade!
Eye Catching and Vibrant!
Spring has Arrived!
A Subtle Yet Striking Cover!
And that's a little bit of what I've been working on lately! More to come soon!
