Photo Challenge – One a Week, 2017

The 52 week Photo Challenge 2016 was such good fun that Sandra from Wild Daffodil and I have created a new challenge for 2017. Called One a Week, it is what it says on the tin. One word each week acting as a prompt for our photographs.You can take special pictures or use ones from your archive. You can participate as and when you fancy. It will run Tuesday to Tuesday and you can leave a link to your photographs on Wild Daffodil  To give you time to get ready here is the list of Prompts.

Thanks to Rainbow Junkie for making our list look so good.

We really enjoyed the 2016 challenge and would love to have you along in 2017. Wild Daffodil links her entries to a haiku, full details of this appear on her blog, Wild Daffodil

Look forward to seeing your pictures

Happy Snapping!

 

Photo Challenge- Creation

After food and shelter, surely the need to create comes next. Certainly the blogs I follow are full of that need and its fulfillment. The fruits of people’s creation is everywhere to be seen and I love public art in unexpected places.

This week!

Another happy and busy week. Christmas preparations well under way now. The spare room where I work is covered in stuff, completed projects and presents waiting to be wrapped, piles of materials for the if I have time things. You Know..

I am loving our new sofas. On 27 December 2015 we went sofa hunting and have been all year. Finally we agreed I would choose one and Mr E the other. Mr E’s delivered a week ago, mine on Brexit Eve!

Ours! I love the poinsettia I bought, it says Christmas is coming, now I don’t have children at home with the advent calender.

Haven’t we had some wonderful sunsets this week?

If I sit on MY sofa this is the view I see.

Tinsel knitting continues.

That would be alongside the two knitting and crochet projects I have going to say nothing of the fabric bits and bobs. Happy to say I will have something to share this month in scrap happy. Meantime this lady hedgehog , called Hetty Wainthropp, is hunting for her passport and trying to learn a foreign language.

Quite proud of myself.

Can you tell I love getting ready for Christmas?

I know some of the bloggers I follow are having a tough time. I visited our church this week, lit a candle and said prayers for you all.  Hard to put a brave face to the world at this time of year. I have had my fair share of doing that this decade and this year I am so grateful that I don’t need to be brave. I am enjoying every moment.

Hoping you all have a good week and some happy times, they are so precious.
