FAQ's

I get asked questions from time to time, so I thought that I would share some of the frequent ones with you in case they answer your own questions.

********************

I like your pictures, what sort of camera do you use?

I use a Canon EOS 1100D.  It doesn't have a particularly long zoom nor do I have a macro lens.  I shoot on automatic most of the time and never use the flash.  Most of my photos are just as I have taken them.  I crop pictures to get rid of bits around the edges, and occasionally straighten a horizon.  Other than that all pictures are as I take them.  No colour changes or touch ups.

How long have you been crocheting, where do you get your inspiration, what patterns do you use, what yarn do you use?

I have been crocheting since 2013 and I taught myself.  I get inspiration from everywhere around me, blogs, magazines, nature.  Mostly I just make things up as I go along and don't tend to use patterns.  I am not good at following rules!  If I use a pattern I will tell you.  From time to time I share my own patterns.  I try and give yarn and other details in the post about a particular item.

********************

Can I purchase your patterns or finished items?

Not at the moment.  It is something that I am considering.  If you would be interested in this perhaps you could let me know.

Where is Basildon Park, what is your connection, what do you do there?

Basildon Park is a house owned by The National Trust, it is in Berkshire, England, and I work there as a Volunteer Tour Guide.  I am not employed by Basildon Park or The National Trust and they don't pay me to write about them!  I just do it because I love the house and want to share it with you.  You can find out more information about the house here.  If you want to read all of my posts, they can be found here.

How do I find out more about Five On Friday or join in?

There is a page in my sidebar where you can get all the information.  Or click on the Five On Friday badge to see my posts.  You are welcome to join in.

How do you write so much, do you never get writers block?

I am lucky that I have time to write.  Finding time and space is very important.  Also I think that writing regularly is very essential.  The more I write the easier it is.  So my advice is to keep writing and to do it regularly.
