OLD WHITE OAK TREE LAYIN' SHADE ON ME
PICKING BLACKBERRIES OFF THE VINE....
Whizzy whizz whizz goes another week! More rehearsing for the WI sketch (those gals can sure put away some gin....!) etc etc.
But I have been busy with crafting too!
The felt is out again so it can only mean one thing - Christmas decorations!! For a WI stall at the town Fair in November - I know it's early but I need them done and out of the way!
The old faithful templates! The snowman one doubles up as a penguin too :-D
I've made a start on the embroidery bit and shall add the beads on whilst watching TV in the evenings, then blanket stitch them together. I quite enjoy embroidery, simple though this is and am definitely going to make a start on the sashiko after these have been finished.
Short and sweet this week! Two pics to show you of some impulse buys before I say farewell - there are some great galleries in Carmarthen and we saw some new work by a favourite photographer of ours - Georgina Hughes (for website, see here) We already have one pic in our bedroom and spotted these in the gallery window.....
Entitled "My Grandmother's Blossom Tree" . Her photos always tell a tale so the lizard brooch and enamel trinket box probably belonged to her Grandma. The photos are like still life paintings I think, the quality of light is astonishing. G says the control of light levels and depth of field are really tricky and he'd love to know how she does it!!
But this is the one that first caught our eye:
"Blackberry Time in the Garden" It's the sort of picture that you can see new things each time you look at it - the blackberries look like you could pick them out of the frame.
Both pics are in our kitchen where we can see them every day - makes me very happy indeed!
Have a great crafty week, lovely gals - see you soon xxxxxxx
