Finally I can show you what secret things I was making for about half the year! Back in July, when I finished my Pandemonium Blanket, I was kind of in between projects. I started the Baby Pandemonium when that came out, and I’d made a Pandemonium inspired cushion, but wasn’t totally invested yet. Then I…… Continue reading On the Hook: Christmas Present Reveal!
This week’s Pandemonium parts had bead stitch again, which I love 🙂 So pretty! For some reason I had a mind blank at the end of part 13 and my beads were not quite right, but I fixed them up when I added part 14. Not sure why, but I was putting my hook into…… Continue reading On the Hook, 16/5/20
This week I have been continuing to work on the Pandemonium CAL. I have been loving it, it’s such a fun, relaxing and beautiful blanket to make 🙂 I’m now all caught up so have to wait for more. Next part (11) is due tomorrow. Here it is at the end of part 9 on…… Continue reading On the Hook, 2/5/20
On Saturday we went round to the pond in the village to do some work for my daughter’s project (The Barley Hollow Project). On the way we stopped by the church wall to see if there were any snowdrops. There were some there as well as a few further down the road. So I had…… Continue reading Snowdrops
My favourite spring flower has popped up in my garden and I am delighted to see it! I didn’t even have to walk down to the field, it is right here outside my front door 🙂 Happy April!
My daughter and I went out for a walk in the woods by the river this afternoon. We’re both tired out now, but it was a lovely walk. The sun was low and the leaves were golden. The light and the leaves together were beautiful. I’m not sure my photos entirely capture the feeling, but…… Continue reading Golden Light
Well, it’s been a while since my last dragonfly photo, and I was feeling the lack of it. Lately I’ve taking a lot of photos of horses and ponies and hadn’t had much opportunity for other smaller creatures. However this weekend I’ve been pottering round the garden taking photos, then this morning felt I had…… Continue reading Here be Dragons
Today I saw my first Hummingbird Hawk-moth! I managed to get a few half-decent photos, but even without perfectly focused images, it was pretty cool! They’re quite big and as the name suggests they flap their wings quickly and hover, poking out their long proboscis to suck up nectar from the flowers. This one flew…… Continue reading Hummingbird Hawk-moth
Spring is really making its mark now, and yesterday was all that is wonderful about spring. Warmth, sunshine, and new life… Wherever you look there are spring flowers bursting forth. Dandelions, often dismissed as weeds, provide a source of nectar for Bees and Butterflies (and many other insects) and bring a splash of lovely bright…… Continue reading A Proliferation of Blooms
My daughter loves to ride, and she especially loves this pony at the riding centre. You get to see a lot of her smiles when she’s with him 🙂 They did a dressage competition together this morning. Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: Smile.
