On the Hook, 4/7/20

This week has been mainly focused on the final stages of the Pandemonium CAL. It is now completely finished! I haven’t done any other crochet this week – making a border all the way around a very large blanket is rather time consuming! So here it is. The first few photos were from part wayContinue reading “On the Hook, 4/7/20”

On the Hook, 30/5/20

This week I’ve completed parts 17 and 18 of my Pandemonium blanket, as well as finishing the wraparound skirt I was working on.

Rather than something orContinue reading “Soothing Light”

Oops – reflections

These all include rather unwanted reflections which I didn’t think about until I was looking at them on the computer! Inspired by the Weekly PhotoContinue reading “Oops – reflections”

Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself

Sometimes the creatures I take photos of express themselves quite clearly and it’s possible to capture that in a photograph. Here’s a few that make me smile 🙂 And because this song is now stuck in my head … Or if you prefer the original:  In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “ExpressContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself”

Cat in a Rain Drop

Today I accidentally caught my cat in a raindrop! Can you see him there, upsidedown among the ragwort flowers?! There’s not much going on out there apart from raindrops and the ocasional spider or fly, so raindrops were my focus. I didn’t quite get the photo I wanted but this amused me. The cat wasContinue reading “Cat in a Rain Drop”
