Photo shoots and tables

Our place was used today for a photo shoot. The products were fashion yarn garments created by the yarn company I do some freelance designing for. It was a long day! It started at 7.30am with the make up artist arriving and getting set up. Then the models had to get made up. That took around an hour for each girl. So there's a lot of waiting around. The models are so used to it. They come well armed with ipods and books.

Here the action has moved to a friend's place down the street. The light had to be 'just right'. Waiting for the clouds, waiting for the sun...

If you look carefully, you'll see some of my handiwork in the shot. The little flower throw and cushion on the left hand side of the screen. And the purple flower bag being held (in a rather odd manner!) by the centre on the right. The little kids were really good. Smiled on demand.

And at last... Frans has finished his table. It was indeed a labour of love. He thinks it took him far too long. About 3 months in total. Lots of sanding, varnishing and more sanding. Here he is demostrating the size! It's really big. 1.4m wide x 2.5m long. There are still extensions to come. That's the next job!

The table as it is will seat 12. 4 on each side, 2 on each end. Now we just need to get different chairs. We're leaning towards the mismatched look. So I'll be trawling ebay to find some suitable seats. I just can't stand these really yellow things with the balls on top!

So the next step is to christen the table. I feel a dinner party coming on!
