done!

When a profile pic is asked for my first reaction is arrrrgghh, I cringe! I’m not very photogenic and I prefer to be behind the lens, not in front of it.

But, today without further a do I donned on my granny square top, my darling daughter raced home from work in her break, we headed up the mountain and snapped a few quick shots, we had one hour and had to contend with the rain!

It began like this . . .

with me not looking very impressed about this whole photo thing . . .

then being silly . . .

and being serious . . .

hmmm, pasty white pins and veiny hands . . .

full body shot, tick . . .

Thank you to my gorgeous girl, she’s one in a million!

I’ve uploaded a few more of today’s pics over on Flickr!

  1. If you don’t KNOW you look fabulous – you need to have a another look in the mirror!! The sweater is fabulous too!

  2. Sarah,

    Are you kidding me? You are absolutely gorgeous…veiny hands indeed *LOL*. I wish I looked only half as good as you…and I also wish I had even a thimble full of your talent. I’m a crochet mad girl (well woman *L*) and I love crafting but you take it to a whole new level. Good on you for putting yourself out there for all the world to see…that takes guts. I’m a little like you, I don’t like to show too much of myself to the world. Sarah, keep up the amazing work that you do, the world needs much, much more of the colour and life that you put out there.

    By the way, I love it when a Sarah London email drops into my inbox, I’m always so eager to see what you are up to.

    Love the pics…and the work…thank you so much.

    Love,

  10. Your beautiful crochet top looks very ‘designer’, you wear it beautifully, and not everyone could do that. They are just lovely photos of you and your daughter. You look more relaxed as the photos go on. I do love your new ‘hair-cut-style’ on you, very much.

    Honestly, as always, your crochet talent has me gobsmacked at times.

  19. Absolutely Gorgeous!! You Ladies are—FABULOUS!!
    i love the granny square top. there were some pics of granny square outfits in the British magazine “Inside Crochet” and when i found those pics online they had some harsh comments. Almost everyone on that post HATED the granny-square inspirations but not me. what a great reinvention and totally MODERN!
    Thank you for showing to everyone how fabulous it looks (and you in it:)

  20. There is nothing so simple and yet so much fun as making granny squares and putting them together. I love your top!!!!!!!

  21. Sarah your top looks wonderful. I simply love your designs and the colours you use, so vibrant.

    As for your looks, I have to agree 100% with the comments made so far. You look lovely, you have an air of elegance about you. A bit like Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall or Honor Blackman. You’ll always look fab :)

    It’s easy to see where your daughter get her stunning looks from

  22. I love it and you look great in it – wonder if I could pull this off:) We move from Brisbane to Melbourne of Canberra in a year :)

  23. I have not seen a series of pictures that are so sparkling with life for a very very long time. What an exuberantly colorful jacket, what a beautiful woman wearing, what a talented photographer to capture the scene for us. Thank you so much for sharing your combined talents with your readers/viewers!
