The very last One-a-Week Photo Challenge Round-Up.

It has been a joy to have compiled the list and co-hosted with Cathy and an absolute delight to see all the entries through the year. Thank you to everyone who made this challenge so very interesting, varied and fun.

Firstly are our very own

and secondly

One hosted by Kati at Magic Spark giving our 2017 list another spin around the block.

Kati saw an entry on Postcard from Gibraltar’s blog and was inspired to create her own weekly challenge, in fact she has 7 regular topics you might like to take a look at here.

So farewell to the One-a-Week Photo Challenge and hello to the Monthly Meet-Up

Keeeeeeeep Sparkling!

Pop

Our last One-a-Week Photo Challenge Prompt – it has been a wonderful year of getting together each week with Cathy and all the wonderful entries for our challenge. Thank you so much to each person who sent an entry and each person who left a comment – it has been a really lovely way to get to know you all. When I think of the entries I think of inventiveness, creativity and blogging friendship.

When we put POP as the prompt for December, I imagined the pop of Champagne corks and Party Poppers – and I did try yesterday to get some action shots of both – but they were all terrible photos! So – as I often do, I scrolled back through my Photo Library looking for a ‘pop’. I didn’t have to go far to find some POPcorn stitches

Amanzi popcorn stitches

The Amanzi Block by Jen Tyler is full of them!

They are great stitches for adding pops of colour and texture.

Here is a You Tube clip showing you how to crochet a Popcorn Stitch.

I have been making this pattern using different colour orders – all in Stylecraft Special DK and a 4.5mm hook. The top one will be felted as a table mat, the bottom one is heading towards becoming a cushion cover.

So it is farewell to a weekly Photo Challenge which I have been doing for 3 years now – every week for three years – I’m impressed that I have managed to do that.

It all started as Blue Daisyz 52 week Challenge in 2015, and then 4 of us joined forces to create a new challenge for 2016, and this year it was Cathy and me. It has been fun!

I’m looking forward to seeing your POPs! Please leave a link in the comments.

The new Monthly Meet-Up will be on the first Tuesday in Jaunary

the prompt is

SPARKLE

Dark

Kaffe Fassett, quilt

patchwork, Kaffe Fassett

The Kaffe Fassett exhibition, currently on at Mottisfont, Hampshire is beautifully staged.

Some of the rooms are light and bright and some are dimly lit with rich and cosy colours – so dark it was difficult to take photos of the wonderful quilting.

Light

Tate Modern, Tate ExchangeMy visit to the Tate Modern on Friday 10th November, was the perfect start to my birthday weekend

wooden framed light shades

The Exchange is a room in the new building at the Tate for interactive projects. I didn’t stop to make a lampshade but did watch a few people doing it. You can get a free cuppa in the Tate Exchange Room – worth knowing!

The exibition in the Turbine Hall, by three Danish artists from an artists’ Collective called SUPERFLEX is also interactive – read all about it here. And see a photo of the artists here,

‘Interactive’ is my favourite form of art.

This exhibit strongly relies on LIGHT and reflection. You can lie on a stripey carpet and watch the huge shiny ball as it swings overhead….

Turbine Hall, Tate Modern

Turbine Hall Tate nov 17

Lots of people were enjoying the bubbles this Mum was blowing as they walked up the carpet.

Whole families could swing together in the rest of the hall, it was fun.

This next picture is taken from a bridge that connects the two buildings.
