Day 2 - 8 months later

As I was saying... ;-)

The time does get away from me. I like to tell myself I took so long to get back to this because I wanted to finish crocheting the title banner first. And of course, I only just did that last week.

Like most things I photograph, the actual thing looks better. My "skill" with a camera is laughable and I apparently live in some sort of light-obliterating cave. Alas. :-)

I had toyed with an even more photo-shopped version:

but I really wanted to add the yarn ball/pillow - and, you guessed it, I suck at photoshop.

Ooo. Now where to begin? Well that's a dilemma to sleep on.
