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!

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.

Using a bit of poetic licence here to meet our One-a-Week Photo Challenge Prompt: Regal

I was trying to make a tealight holder out of used teabags that was not so BROWN.

After painting it with white Gesso it somehow said ‘Christmas’ to me, so I painted the inside with some gold paint, a few dots around the outside and then it said ‘CROWN’.
