Click Love Grow Photography Course

For the last 8 weeks I have been doing this fantastic online photography course through Click, Love, Grow and so I thought I’d share a little bit about it with you.

I wanted to improve my marketing shots and my step by step shots of my sewing designs and wanted to do a photography course in the comfort of my own home too.  This course has been fantastic!  I have a Canon EOS 1100 DSLR Camera and have always used it in auto mode!  I have tried a few times to change it to manual mode – but have always been unhappy with the results.  This course has shown me how to feel confident about taking it out of Auto and has explained about my camera settings and photo compositions.

We have had weekly lessons which include a PDF workbook and an online videos plus tutorials too – and we submit a photo each week for a particular challenge and are assessed on this.  The one thing I have really enjoyed too has been the support and encouragement you get from closed facebook group with all the students that are taking the course.   So I thought I’d share a few of my favourite photos I’ve taken over the last 8 weeks.








I’ve really enjoyed this course and I definitely think it has helped me to improve my photography skills.  Now I just need lots of practise – so expect to see a few more photos from me as I get the hang of using my camera in manual mode!




Indulge in Stitches

Country Hart Designs hosted a lovely stitching weekend over at Maggie Beers farm in the Barossa Valley in South Australia at the end of May.  A group of six of us went from here – and met up with around another 100 ladies who attended the weekend too!  The Designers for the weekend were Leanne Beasley, Rosalie Quinlan and Robyn Welsh.  It was a wonderful weekend getaway!  We got some lovely projects to work on from each of the designers and we had two lovely days of stitching away and relaxing with friends.  Here are a few photos I took over the weekend.

A great weekend – thankyou ladies!

Happy Sewing!
