Blog rejig

A while ago now I went and updated my blog design a bit. I’ve been meaning to tinker with it a bit more, but actually I probably won’t get round to it and now I’ve had it for a while I kind of like it as it is. I’ve had a few comments on it, but since not everyone clicks through, I thought I’d put stuff in a post so people reading in a reader can see too!

This is the new header:

Isn’t it nice? My sister made it, like my last one, in paper using scrapbooking supplies. I asked for something grey and yellow that included sewing, knitting and clothes things, and it does not disappoint! She sent it to me as a photo of the actual paper thing, which unfortunately was slightly darker on the right than the left, so the white paper appeared grey and I had to faff about with the eraser tool quite a lot. It’s quite difficult to keep the threedimenionality (is that a thing?) when you’re taking out the backgroundshading, but I think it’s acceptable enough.

Also, new profile picture:

franca and bertie

It’s a section from our family portrait with all the colours except some of the yellow and red desaturated to match the colour scheme.

I’ve also rewritten my blog description to emphasise the sewing and family adventures. I’ll have to make sure I keep up the sewing!

    I really love it. The colours look great and your logo is perfect. What a talented sister you have. I keep thinking I should update my blog, but honestly wouldn’t have a clue where to start.

    I agree. Lovely logo and that drawing of you is great. I am also do a bit of a reboot but being the Luddite that I am it’s not going to happen any time soon. 🙂 Xx
