A cryptic clue to my next shop update! Crochet by Emma Lamb

Today I'm being cryptic and colourful! Although I'm not nearly as far along with this project as I wanted to be today, I had hoped to have them finished ready for tomorrow but I've been lacking in motivation this week. The outside world has felt so grey and uninspiring, not one ray of sunshine has poked through the thick clouds...

So absolutely no chance of a decent photographing session! That is unless you have a whole lot of determination, a strong daylight bulb in your desk lamp, a basic knowledge of the macro function on your camera, and then a whole lot of patience for editing the best of what can only be described as an iffy bunch of pics! Et voila! A few cryptic and only slightly iffy pics!

Anyway, I shall tell you more about them next week, along with a shop update and maybe even a giveaway - yay! Here's hoping you all had a far more creative week than I did!?
