Each week in 2016 I managed to create a round-up of all the photos entered into our challenge. By the end of the year it felt too big a commitment.

However I miss seeing all the links to your wonderful posts in one place so I hope to do a monthly round-up in 2017. Please let me know your thoughts.

This year Cathy and I are asking that links to the photos are put into the comments on my blog each Tuesday, after I have posted my entry. This will help me immensely, and make it easy for the rest of us to visit.

We had some fabulous entries in January so ….. Here goes!

Wow! What an amazing variety of entries! It has been great going through the links and looking at all of them again. Please let me know if I have missed any.

I’m so looking forward to seeing what you have in store for February. The Prompts are: Artificial, Fence, Traffic, Seed – must get snapping!

Each prompt starts on Tuesdays this year.

Awkward

dsc_0087

My son-in-law caught his new duck-down filled jacket on a barbed wire fence and asked if I could mend it. An AWKWARD thing to mend.

But mothers-in-law come in useful at times. First I did a herringbone stitch to keep the edges stable. I got a piece of bias binding folded and sewed it into a right-angle and then hem stitched it onto the jacket, being careful not to go through to the lining beneath.

I was pretty pleased with the result – and so was my son-in-law!

This is my entry for our ‘One-a-Week’ Photo Challenge, which goes live each Tuesday.

All the weeks’ prompts are listed below so you can be looking out for the subjects. I like to get a few sitting in my drafts, as life can suddenly get busy at times.

Have you found anything AWKWARD recently – or maybe you have an AWKWARD photo in your archive. Cathy of Nanacathy and I created the list for fun, Rainbow Jane created the graphics for us – feel free to add any prose or poetry if the prompt inspires and leave a link in the comments below. It is always inspiring to see the variety of responses each prompt brings forth.

Next week’s subject is

GATE.

This week’s Photo Challenge prompt: CREATION

There are many wonders in all creation but the mystery, magic and miracle of birth sums it up for me.

Also entering Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku challenge. His prompt words are PET and PLAY.

For most of my life I have had dogs and cats as pets but the last one died just before moving house in 2005, life got busy, grandchildren came along. I sometimes miss the company of animals, but enjoy the freedom without them nowadays.

I have nicknamed this combo of the two challenges a Phaiku – have a go!

Please leave a link to your ‘Creation’ Photo or Phaiku in the comments.

Next weeks prompt is WRAP 

Also joining in with Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Made by Human Beings – couldn’t resist!

Now drum roll please!

Here is our new Photo Challenge List for 2017. It has been an absolute joy to compile the 2017 list with Cathy for your inspiration and delight.

Thanks go to Cathy, Rainbow Jane and Melissa for the 2016 list – it has been a great year – just 3 more weeks to go! I don’t think Cathy, Jane or I have missed a week – quite an achievement and so wonderful to have been doing this together. Melissa had so many other priorities to attend to but joined us when she could. It was Melissa who introduced me to the idea of the ‘Phaiku’.

Thanks also go to YOU for all your wonderful entries – it is always a delight to see the variety of the interpretations for each word. Long may it continue!

We’d LOVE you to join us in 2017.

Ta Dah!
