WOYWW 102 - The shot taken in daylight....

Mrs D of The Great WOYWW Wander asked me last week if I ever craft in daylight.  The answer is, not during the winter no (except at weekends) and usually what happens in summer is I end up taking my WOYWW photo in the dead of night. 

So here, for the purposes of proving that I'm not a shade or a vampire, is my desk in daylight.




If you enlarge the picture you will see that the quality is rather dire - for some reason my camera doesn't like taking shots in half light, but if I'd taken a photo with flash it would have rather negated the point, eh?  Equally, you can see why I don't tend to craft in daylight - the light is awful in here.

So what's on my desk?  The usual, not a lot.  I took this last night, just before I did my entry for the Tri-Colour Challenge over on UK STampers (see previous dated post).  I failed to cover my PIF up properly, so I've had to employ Mr Photoshop to hide a bit.  ROFL.

I then put the light on so I could get a reasonable shot of my UFO - the Hardanger piece I referred to in last week's WOYWW.  As you can see, I have actually done something to it.




No Julia, there are in fact several crafts I DON'T do. LOL - Crochet for one; you have my utmost admiration for that. (Never could get the tension right, which meant I was pretty good at crocheting triangles but not squares LOL). Basket weaving for another (though I'm tempted for practical reasons!). Crewelwok leaves me cold. I could go on.


I managed to get round a fair few desks last week, before my Blogger at work started playing up.  I keep getting "your cookies are not enabled" messages, but although I've done everything they've said, I still can't get Blogger to work.  Thus, I am Blogger-less at lunchtime, which puts a SERIOUS dent in my WOYWW browsing. 

I'm getting a helluva good score on Zuma Blitz though....

Catch you on the hop!

Fab desk, love all I can see. I have branched out into quilting, and costume make for hubby's hobby, but counted cross stitch ... ohh that makes me go cold! I have admiration for anyone with the patience to do it!

I am disappointing that you are not a True Creature Of The Night...

I like creating after dark as well. :) But I'm trying something new and I need the daylight so I had to adjust. :) Happy WOYWW!

Quirky Boots said...

i generally craft at night too as i have to pack away during the day (awaiting for craft room to be completed!) so i feel pretty much like a vamp too lol x

although dont get me started on vamps as it was the last vampire diaries last night :(
oh dear now i've rambled on! lol x

Julia Dunnit said...

Looks much bigger in daylight - I guess because the spotlight of light isn't the focus. Am prepared to accept you aren't a creature of the night because you've been spotted out and about by day, otherwise..hmm. Funny that the slightly changed photo angle revealed the PIF...it's all getting a bit teaseful now!!

Never heard of hardanger so I'll have to go and look that up! Don't think I'd ever noticed that your photos were all in the evening before, shows how much attention I pay compared to Julia!

So many good things to look at there on that creative desk of yours. I've been known to take a few pictures in the dark too. Whatever works! TFS

Spyder said...

Lots to spy, and I did make the photo bigger... talc, Asda bag, a X sticky label thingy and a pluggy thing, all which I have (my pluggy thing is under the desk) not got any 'stamping' mags tho! Happy WOYWW!

Chrissy said...

Thanks for proving you're not a vamp! ;) My craft room has horrible light during the day too. Goodluck with blogger!
