Finished Swaps

This is a Swap Bot Valentines Day Apron swap apron.. its for our Jen from Lipstick and Laundry was my partner.. so I can not show all of the apron at this time sorry. In fact I would love it if Jennifer would send me better photos.. Mine turned out so bad with my poor lighting in my house at night. It's been too cold here to Photograph outside. I always get better photos when I photograph outside :) So Jenn if you read this please send me better photos :)

Blurred due to such a small piece shown .

The above is a Winter in the Kitchen Apron swap off of Swap-Bot. This apron is also for Jenn from Lipstick and Laundry. It is made with cute little snowmen and the black dotted cotton material. I hope she loves these two aprons.. I really had fun making them for her. It was really hard to letting go of them :)

This was a Valentines day apron swap off of Swap-Bot. This apron was made with this lovely pink heart material with black bias tape and black dotted material for the pocket and waist band. If my partner from there sees her apron before she receives it.. I am sorry to spoil the surprise. But I find not all Swap-Bot swappers look at their partners blogs. I like to look at them :)

This last photo is of my mittens... I was in a handcrafted mitten swap.. only a taste on that too ... sorry :) My partner might blog me :) I don't want to spoil the fun :)

The mittens are made out of fleece with lace embellishments.

As soon as I hear from my partners I will post the entire photo of the completed items. I am sorry the photos are not as good as they should be. Remember my lighting at night is not so hot.

Does anyone have suggestions how to have better lighting so I can take photos at night????? So the Photos are more clear and not so yellow??? I would love any suggestions. I don't have a lot of day light hours. Since I sleep during the day and work at night.

How pretty the aprons are! I have a ton of patterns and have not ever made one. I think I will today! Don't you use a flash? If not, use a tripod and self timer. Use a manual setting so you get a slower exposure and more light in your camera.

Unfortunatly these photos were with a flash!!! I will just have to wait to take photos during the day. I don't like how the night photos turn out. They are always yellow in color.
Thank you for the suggestions though :)
