Simple pleasures

At a recent Members' Evening at the camera club I took a photo of this eggcup. Thought it would make an interesting image to play with to see what different effects there might be. May try to develop this further, although it won't go into any competitions!

Shades of grey and other colours

I like taking photos of ordinary objects and finding pattern in them. Add some colour and see what happens - the potential in ordinary things - just like us really ..

Favourite things

If you are a visitor of textile blogs (and sometimes photography blogs) you will have noticed photos of rust! The colours and texture have an appeal which is often translated into textiles or paintings, part of the fascinating breakdown of objects which were once shiney and new. This was a piece of a rusty something which I picked up (literally) in the Scottish borders and now sits on the windowsill of the porch only to be admired by me, I think! I love it!

You will be called Repairer of Broken Walls ...

Odds and ends

In between some great 60th birthday celebrations and meals for my sister I've had time to do a few odds and ends. The first is a book wrap made up of layered fabrics, machine sewn together with some acrylic stamping. The armband was an experiment, again layers of fabrics with wadding and string inside.

Sitting here in fromt of the computer I can see the bluetits flying in and out of our bird box - definitely some twitching going on!
