Weekly Photo Challenge – Containers

008

Not a very original container, but the contents are unusual. Stitched shells by my friend Fay, and also the real thing. Spotted on Saturday. Full details of the Weekly photo challenge can be found here. Just Snaps has a different interpretation.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Contrasts

025

Rough/smooth, hard/soft, whichever way you look at it there’s a lot to be found in contrasts. Full details of the challenge can be found here and Just Snaps is also up and running. Fancy a 2 month blogging challenge? Find out more here.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Between

You all know that I love to dye. The results are always satisfying, but there is another stage……….

It’s right in the middle – half way through – between the wet and dry fabric!

It’s called RINSING.

And there are no short cuts! If you try…… this tangle is usually the result!

Full details of this week’s challenge can be found here and an entry from Just Snaps is ready to view too.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Room

If you missed my earlier post I hope you will take a look before you leave this site. It relates specifically to today, and refers to someone I love. There’s more to this post below than at first meets the eye, too – so don’t forget to scroll right down too.

This week’s Photo Challenge is ‘Room’. If the family see this they will laugh raucously, I’m sure, because I never have enough. I can fill a space before it is vacated! However, the one place I always ensure that I leave PLENTY of room is in the dyebath!

The fabric needs room to move in the fixing solution. Below are the results of part of the above collection

Incidently, if anyone is near South Wales and is interested in learning a little about dyeing, I’m teaching a day workshop on 14th June at Busy Bees Patchwork in Newport. There are a couple of places left, if you are interested email Busy Bees directly for details. It’s very good value and, apart from having fun, you will learn that it’s simple and logical to create colour on fabric.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Split-Second Story

008

 

Maybe this is a bit of a cheat! Earlier this week we visited a local attraction with our grandchildren. The youngest spotted the fluffy ram and immediately climbed on. This was to the delight of the nearby volunteer who announced that it had only just been received and placed there minutes ago until its permanent resting place was prepared. Five minutes later we passed the spot again and it had gone!

 

Full details of the challenge can be found here. Just Snaps has a real ‘Split-Second’ story.

Weekly Photo Challenge – On Top

 

There is nothing better than viewing the world through the eyes of children, so a trip to a Children’s Zoo was a pleasure. Of all the animals and birds that we saw these little chaps were the firm favourite!

028

And as you can see (top right) one of the little kids was definitely ‘on top’ of the world!

Full details of the challenge can be found here, and Just Snaps has a design source as the entry.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Monumental

Size is relative.

When walking along the prom even the smallest cliff seems monumental

Full details of the challenge can be found here, and one from Just Snaps, featuring something slightly different, will be along shortly.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Reflections

The waiting room at the dental surgery is somewhere I reflect at least 4 times a year. Whether there for a ‘check-up’ or visit to the hygienist I often reflect on how I’ve actually been brave enough to come. Memories of dentistry in my early life are not for this post, but they weren’t pleasant. The surgery is housed in a building with many of the original Edwardian features still intact. A recent visit revealed a change-around of furniture and, as I was called quickly for my appointment, this was the only reflection apparent during that time.

One of its ‘companion’ windows, showing bluebirds, is here. Full details of the challenge can be found here, and another will appear on Just Snaps shortly.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Inside

This is not the most original of interpretations, but this picture has been waiting in its album for an outing. So here it is.

Inside 1

Every now and then we park outside this shop on our way home from a visit. It is always empty – apart from the occasional girl sitting behind the till and communicating on her mobile. She was missing when I took this picture. I like the pink chair, though. But I bet it’s uncomfortable ;)

Full details of the challenge, and many more entries, can be found here.  Just Snaps is up an running – with a similar not very original interpretation, but a shot that is no longer available…. and something that is a little obscure as well! There are also a few below
