Felt Embroidered ball # 22 is finished. I have left one red pentagon free for the baby's initial to go in when I know what that is. It has 2 new motifs on it that I have not done before. One a little red hen ( ginger colour really altho it looks red in the photo and needs longer legs and a higher comb ) and a mountain scene I am not totally happy with.
I will probably start on # 23 tonight while watching TV.
At the weekend I started the marathon job of collecting up leaves off the big oak tree. They make lovely mulch around the avocado trees. R took away 4 wool packs I had filled. 2 with leaves, one with garden rubbish I pulled from his vege patch and the 4th was shreaded paper to go underneath the other stuff so it won't blow around.
This colourful bowl has the grated ingredients for a carrot slice I made this afternoon ready for easy food Wednesday. ( I could post the easy recipe if any one hasn't got it ) It has in it the last few tiny courgettes and neglected carrots from a row I had planted and I needed to dig up their soil to put over my yams that the birds keep scratching at. They are getting bigger too I noticed but I don't want them going green in the light so heaped soil over them for just a little longer till they are ready.
On Saturday I got started on a project I want to make. A wall hanging using my own photograph as the back ground. I ruled the photo up into a grid and began pulling the right coloured fabrics. I had plenty of greens but none of the sky blue I needed so the project came to a halt till I get to a shop. I hope the creative mojo doesn't leave me in the meantime.
This is the photo I am using. ( taken during my walk on Friday in the Carmichael reserve.)
My feet have been good lately and I am back to walking when I get the chance. I will always have to protect my right foot with thick bouncy soles but that's okay.
Still trying. Spot the pigeon.
Here's hoping for fine picking weather this week.
