Photo Challenge: STITCH review


A photo from warmer days (Apr.14). Whilst waiting for a friend to join me for tea, I used my crochet as a makeshift tea-cosy.

I have done my best to do a review of all our STITCH photos on the iPad. Still not adept at making the links, but I hope I have managed to include everyone. Once again such a wonderful variety and glimpses into other aspects of some fascinating blogs. Thanks so much to everyone for joining in. It is always the stories behind the pictures that enrich this challenge for me.

Garden Cathy, Roz, Melissa and I have all combined this with Ronovan’s haiku challenge, interestingly, he didn’t, ha! But he did join in with a photo! Welcome Ron!

Jane of RainbowJunkie: cute heirlooms

Appropriately we have had a wonderful week of Winterwatch on the BBC

which you can still catch on iPlayer, just click on the link above.


I have been having a tidy up on the computer and came across this little slideshow of a beach mandala, gently transformed by the tide, that I made on the Isle of Skye about 10 years ago, a very timely find – hope you enjoy it.
