Today is a very serious sort of day here in the UK as we are voting in the referendum on whether or not to remain in or leave the European Union. So I thought a little light relief might be welcome – in the form of some pictures from Ben and Daisy’s photoshoot earlier today.
Ellie, a friend who lives in the village, has just finished her photography degree so is a bit of a whizz (to say the very least) with her camera. She also wanted to learn needlefelting, so a couple of weeks ago we spent a lovely morning sitting at my table while I showed her everything I’d learned about this craft. In return she volunteered to take some pictures of the terrible twosome. So we met this morning up at the village hall and after we’d both voted Ellie got down (literally!) to work.
The newfies were not the best behaved pair, taking absolutely no notice of her directions …..
They got far too close to the camera!
Then they became bored, and stuck their tongues out at all the wrong moments! But in spite of this Ellie took some really lovely photos of them both …
This one’s my favourite of them both together. Below is Daisy, posing madly for the camera (I think she’s becoming rather vain!)
Then there’s Ben, looking very serious and wise (although he isn’t of course!)
This one is much more his usual behaviour – silly old dog!
By the end he was quite worn out – all that concentrating and all that posing is hard work for a dog of very little brain ….
And he’s been fast asleep ever since we returned home.
While he sleeps I’ve been working hard on the July Bustle & Sew Magazine (it’s out next week) and also assembling more Unicorn Head kits. I’ve managed to secure some more Tilda doll hair for their manes, so they’re back in stock, for a little while at least. I’ll be back very soon with a magazine preview for you, and meanwhile, whichever way the vote goes today I hope you’re having a good one!
