Ice on the river


Ther is only a few visible here, but the camera couldn't pick out the large ones in the middle of the river

SWAN


He had landed beside the resident swans & to be honest I'd been watching them for a while before I noticed it was a goose so had to have a picture.
I've also added another of the castle which is just a few metres away from the swans, I think you can see the ice. it was also a very grey day so the light isn't too good.
Hope you all had a nice christmas, I went shopping today & got lots of Tildas half price, so plenty to keep me busy after the holidays, promised I wouldn't be crafting till then.
Take care

This Goose Thinks He's a .......see above



I have yet another chest infection & we went for a walk along the beach to get a bit of fresh air & to see the ice floes on the river, we are at the mouth of the north sea, there was this lonely goose, I think he must have got lost & landed beside what he thought were his fellow geese, also what may have helped was the landlord of the pub which is right on the beach had put out trays of food for the birds, the beach was completly frozen.

Knitting Kilt hose


I've been doing these while I've been ill & found it very relaxing, not knitted for a while & promised my son ages ago I'd make him some. (I did finish the pair, but the pic is better with one sock.
If anyone has another pattern for Aran sock's I'd love a copy, I have lots of wool left over but finding a pattern is near impossible, I don't really want a plain knit as I much prefer patterns.
So please if anyone has such a thing hiding in the loft, please think of me.

I've been having a clearout & have had this stamp for 2 years & never used it, so thought I'd give the challenge a go.

Quickie Birthday


It's my brothers birthday tomorrow & I'm struggling for crafting time just now. I paid a quick visit to the shop for my Magnolia magazine & they'd just got these Nitwit decoupage in stock, as he has a westie I thought nice & easy so this is what I came up with, I wish I'd bought the set with the bones on, but as I don't usually do decoupage it was unnecessary expense, but I did get the cute little rabbit.
Just have to go deliver it now once the plummer has been.
Take care &I hope the sun is shining where you are, It's pouring down here.

Red White & Blue


this is for two challenges Sketch Saturday h& PBSC the theme is red white & blue to celebrate 4th July.
I'm not too sure about this one, couldn't quite get the balance right, either too much blue or too much white & should I have put gems in the flower centres?
I was getting a bit frustrated with it & have had a mental day between hospital appointments & son's allotments ( he has a sprained ankle so isn't getting about too well) so ended up just sticking it together & hope for the best.
Anyhow, back to the card

Hedgie in the bunker


This is my entry for Friday Sketchers, also for PB challenge over on dc forum.
