Portrait gallery gets some new faces.


If you're a local and would like some photos of your family, etc, I'd be keen to hear from you.

Stiched Up Gallery Updated

It's been a long long time away from the blog, but the making tools have been busy regardless.  I am hoping to finally put an end to this digital neglect and regularly add new content.  The Stitched Up sewing gallery now features many more examples of my textile work, and the other galleries will also get updated.

Etsy Store Repopulated

The Chromatophobic Etsy store got a little neglected this year, and I have finally revived it to its cross-eyed, drooly glory, full of brooches and buttons and earrings and other fun stuff.

Christmas Gift Making


I wonder if I was a Santa Elf in one of my previous lives...

It's nearly time for some keen folks' mid year Christmas, so probably about time for the 2013 Christmas gift making round-up.  For someone who is a fist shaking festive grinch, I sure do put a lot of effort into designing and making gifts for family.  It the only way I can think of to turn something I loathe, which is shopping for gifts into an enjoyable experience, which is creating something in my personal sweatshop - *ahem* - workroom.

Last festive gifting involved printing some photo books, making some food and the usual sewing and toy making.  There seems to be an emerging theme of DIY toys, clothes, food and photography.

I should be about the last person in the western world to want to do this, but I even sewed a holiday outfit for my daughter.  Red and white happen to be her colours, and my weakness for elephants compelled me to buy elephant print cotton

Summer of Weddings

Long time - no post is no indication of idleness, or so I'd like to think.  The poor excuse for a summer that we had is long long gone, and now that we're back off daylight savings time, the lack of afternoon photography light is depressing.  I have been frantically sewing, photographing and incubating, although I'm not convinced that the latter can be executed "frantically", especially since that process is responsible for a noticeable and incredibly exasperating drop in my productivity.

Anyway, I photographed a few lovely weddings this summer.  An extension of this visual snippet can be found in the Chromatophobic wedding gallery.
