Take one thing

Choose one item - or in this case two! - and take different shots.  This was a challenge in Kim Klassen's Bestill 52 class. Had to coerce HI to pretend to be sewing - he's such a willing helper! The reels of thread (old aka vintage) came from a second-hand market stall.  Must have got rid of loads of items like this over the years.  Never throw anything out, at least small things!

Happy Easter!

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter, and for those of you who are not well at this time or have undergone surgery,  a speedy recovery and freedom from pain.
  As you can see from my photos, for the first time in my life I have used onion skins to colour the eggs.  My mum always used to do it - I had to watch a Youtube video to remind myself what to do! Never too old to learn!  The bird's nest I found on the pavement (minus eggs) after it had been blown down, the egg carton I painted white and the ranunculus were one of a rare finds in this area at this time!  Hope you all get some sun to enjoy the start of Spring!
