Buys of the week

Every day I have my fill of reading lovely blogs on my brilliant Ipad. Their are a few that I follow every post of. 
One of these is One Sheepish Girl the photography is amazing and her projects and general blog is so light hearted, fun and enjoyable. 
 On Sunday she wrote a blog and within this she featured a blog she loves to follow called Yours Truely yet another amazing blog followers Kerry's adventures and her stunning dress sense. 
Within Kerry's blog she mentioned a group called Time for T I had a listen to it on my Sound Cloud and they are really good and great acoustics's.
So that was my blog fill over the last couple of days, now to move on to my purchases online from my favourite crafty site Folksy.  I really like this site as it supports some amazingly talented craft folk who I would never be able to access otherwise.
My first purchase was for myself.  I have an ever growing collection of scarves and shawls and with these I like to be able to pin them into position.  This brooch just jumped out and said "buy me, buy me"  I love the detail and colour in it, such a simple yet very effective idea.

The next three items are for impending Mother's day.
The scrumptious looking soap and the dish (which I would love!) is being sent directly to my mum as she does not live locally so I won't get to view them for a little while, but I think mum will love them.

Geranium and Calendula Handmade Soap

Bird Soap Dish


Joys of Glass on Folksy

Suncatcher Stained Glass
This last item has been personally customise by the maker with the horses name "Leo" underneath.  I just know Mother in law will  be chuffed with this as the colours reflect her horse perfectly, so when she is not at the field she can look at this with the sun shining through on the window.
For part of my Mothers Day treat I get to spend a full day with my glorious son as we are off to Crufts to fulfil our passion for dogs and spend quality time with him.  Then Sunday my adorable wife is cooking her awesome Sunday roast for us and her mum.

Basically I am certainly looking forward to the weekend.
I hope your week and weekend are filled with great things.

The break is over.

Looking back on my blog my last entry was October, so a long break of 6 months!

A dear friend suggested I get back into blogging. I was unsure as I am a private person and wondered whether too.

So over the past week I have been going through the reading list of people I follow and really enjoy the ability to read and view image's.

I started this blog as a type of diary to be able to look back. I am definately not they tyle of person to do a "visual" blog and admire people who can sit in front of a camera and do that and I do so love to watch. So from the safety net of words and picture's I will share my love of photography, which is all done on my phone. My passion for knitting, my garden and what ever else I want to record for "safe keeping ".

So if you have a spare bit of time please do enjoy with me and let me know what you think.

I'm kicking off the blog with some of the trips I have had.

My first trip out was in Decmeber to my special place Slimbri…

Trip to Tewkesbury

This morning I woke to this poignant message having being sent to me by a good friend. I was unsure what to do with my day as I had no plans and the weather was set to be nice. 
So I decided to heed the advice and set off to Tewkesbury. 
On Friday I had treated myself to a nice new pair of walking shoes so this would be a great first outing for them.

Not even five minutes into my walk I spotted this beautiful Bluebells.

My first stop was a place called Lower Lode, Tewkesbury  you come down to the River Severn and the viewing point looks over to the 13th Century B&B/pup/campsite which was very popular today.

I decided to sit and people watch and listen to the bird's singing for 5 minutes whilst knitting a little of my new sock.

I then headed back the same way and walked across the park with the majestic Tewkesbury Abbey as the backdrop .

Here I sat for a little longer and listened to the bell ringing and watched as a coach load of visitors from Nottingham came to look around t…

Road to happiness photo session.

I live in the cotswold town of Cheltenham.  It is a very multi cultural town with some great area's for photography.

Today I decided to cycle along a route called the Honeybourne line which is an old disused railway line.

In 2017 #cheltenhampaintfestival create an amazing event that meant many area's were painted by incredible street artists.

One of who was done by Vanesa Long Champ an incredible artist based in London who has travelled widely.

Inspired hughly by Laine magazine I took photographs of my newly completed garment which I have called Road to Happiness.  One is a short sleeve top and the other is a love sleeve jumper. 

The garment is a boxy style comprising of lace, cables and moss stitch. I love the garment so much I will be making another and am going to design socks, cowl and wrap to complete the design idea's. 

Please do enjoy the picture's .
