this week, the one that I'd been dreading, actually turned out to be pretty darn good. I seemed to fit in a lot of blog posts and I found loads to photograph. LOADS.
So, despite already doing four posts this week I find I still have more images from the last few days that I wanted to share here.
Here is a mixed bag of what else was on my camera this week.
After a busy day at work I love it when I finally get chance to sit down and do something creative.
These little crochet circles......
Turned into ears for cute mice.......
Now the boys are back at school I'm enjoying a bit of quiet time at home alone on my days off in the week. At this time of year the low afternoon sun shines on my rainbow maker and the room is filled with glittery colour........
on Thursday they were particularly stunning, the colours were intense and you could clearly see the whole spectrum........
Thursday was also a brilliant day for cloudscapes. I was wowed by the ever changing display of dramatic winter beauty.
and Evening (well 4.15 pm )
Yes we still have a lot of dark hours. These pictures were taken at six pm on Tuesday. It was windy and there were beautiful colours scudding across the moon. I set up my camera on a tripod to try and get a decent shot.
I didn't capture the clouds but I still love this image, with it's halo of light.........
And you can even make out some craters, I was so happy to manage to take a reasonable picture of our lovely Moon...........
Back to daylight now and a picture of my Welsh Dresser ( remember when I first got it HERE).
How I love this (rather orange pine) piece of furniture. It's so much fun playing about changing the displays.
And it's a great place to keep your latest crochet makes..........
The dark brown one was first, he turned out huge. Then I realised I should be using a 3.5mm hook with my double knitting yarn to get a smaller, denser result.
The pattern is free and found HERE if any of you lovelies fancy making them.
Despite already having three calendars for this year I couldn't resist adding a fourth when I spotted this in the charity shop for 75pence!..........
It even matches my blanket
Of course it's got summery pictures for January and Autumnal scenes for March but I quite like that. I certainly like looking at summer images on lovely blogs from the southern hemisphere when it's cold and wintry here.
This is the calendar's photo for January....New Chums beach, it looks like a stunning place......with great name :0)
Before I go I'd just like to thank you all for the cowl love.....so many comments, I'm so pleased you like it....and ♥ thank you ♥ for taking time out of your busy days to tell me so.
