What a gloriously warm, sunny weekend it has been - and I have made the most of it. Did you see the lunar eclipse last night? I put my alarm on and then lay in bed watching it - quite spectacular!
Today, a few random photos of the weekend and a few accompanying words
Umm, I'm not really a fan of Halloween so why on earth, I ask myself, am I cross stitching
Halloween motifs? I think I was just drawn to the zingy and fluorescent colours (a devil to photograph to get a true depiction of colour).
Sitting outside reading and eating lunch.
We bought crumpets for the first time in years - toasted and dripping with butter of course.
And then of course, buttery fingers on the lens of my camera lends a soft focus to subsequent photos!!
The lens cover is broken on my Nikon, in fact, I'm a little disappointed with it because
I have only had this camera 3 years and it is is limping along now - the zoom has a
mind of its own which makes for tricky photography!
I desperately needed a new peg bag.
No, I don't usually store my pegs in a bowl - this is where I threw them while
I used the old bag as a template.
The peg bags I saw in the shop were incredibly flimsy so I decided to make a new one.
(please excuse my shadow)
I made kitchen curtains for our last house with this material.
It was a complete fluke that the stripes matched up down the front of the bag.
I didn't intend to spend long on this project - I had a football match to watch.
(Daughter has now been signed with a local Midlands city senior Ladies team - YAY!)
That looks much better!
Goodness! Given the muck in the bottom of my old peg bag
I wonder my clothes ever came off the line clean!
I spent several hours chopping back the hedge at the bottom of the garden -
this is in the field at the back of the hedge and the pile of cuttings on the left
(no, that is not also a hedge even though it looks like it) is as
high as the hedge on the right!
It was lovely in the late afternoon sun in the field.
Hope you had a good weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing lots of Yarndale posts!
