After making the red and black blocks, I was left with a pile of scraps
so I started sewing them together
randomly adding bits
ending up with this block
but now I have scraps of the scraps!
today was orchid-watering day (I only water them once every two weeks) and I thought you might like to see which ones are flowering. This one has only just started to flower
a lovely pale flower with delicate markings
this one is darker
with much stronger markings
this one is a stronger yellow than it looks in the photos
the flowers are waxy looking
and now a very special treat - a guest photographer! Stuart recently upgraded his camera (I am very envious) and took it out for a walk on Sunday. He sent me these three photos, which he was particularly pleased with. First an arty shot of a pine cone
next, an elegant swan
this is my favourite - a very sharp image of a robin
to finish - there was a bit of a commotion in the kitchen this afternoon, and this is what I found when I went to investigate. I had left some tubs of home made soup to cool, before I put them in the freezer ........ and Malcolm had somehow knocked a pear out of the fruit bowl into one of the tubs. As he went to clear up, I was, of course, shouting "leave it until I take a photo"!!
