I was thinking, I don’t have any glitz nowadays, but then I remembered the dressing up box where my old clothes now reside.

This is a party dress I had when I was 14 (1966/7!) with a reversble middle panel,  the other side is black.

1965/6

sadly the zips no longer work, but I loved that dress and have just not been able to throw it away……

then there is all my ancient festival gear

I do love these shawls, but what to do with them now?

And my son’s Christmas tree – I’m so glad to see the snowflakes I made for the boys last year, up there in the tree

The challenge will still become live on the first Tuesday of each Month and remain open for entries until the following month.

Warm

Here we are at the first Tuesday of February with our Photographic Monthly Meet Up.

The theme this month is WARM, so join us by leaving links in the comments to any photographs and/or posts both current and archive. Let’s all meet up for a huddle to keep warm – cos ‘baby it’s cold outside’! At least it is here. Any photos of warmer climes will be much drooled over and appreciated!

It might be frosty outside this morning but inside I’m indulging in some cosy hooky time before getting out of bed!

I’m loving the warm colours of Attic24’s Woodland Cal and in the 5th week of the Cal the blanket is big enough to keep me warm whilst crocheting.

I’m already thinking of new projects using these scrummy colours.Attic24 Woodland Cal

Going back to February 2013 I found this post – and the colours fit with the Warm theme

And this post from February 2014 when I was in Abu Dhabi for two gloriously WARM weeks.

In February 2015 I was keeping cosy under the Attic24 Cosy Cal

In February 2016 I knitted 14 bobble hats to keep my family warm

In February 2017 the Attic24 Cal was once again keeping me warm with my Hedgerow version of Lucy’s Moorland Blanket.

How are you keeping warm?

The theme stays open all month, just leave your links in the Comments.

I’m really looking forward to seeing your take on WARM.

Now I’d better get up!
