My son came home from school today with a beautiful, yummy chocolate cake he had made in Home Economics so I took a picture of it. Cake seems to be a popular blogging shot and as I like eating it, it seemed like a good shot for my blog! (It was extremely yummy, by the way!)
My digital camera has been one battery short of a full load for the past few days (I used the fourth one in my wireless mouse - decisions had to be made! - laptop or camera). Apart from this, my blogging, flickr and Etsy research doesn't generate too many great pics as that's what I've been doing the last few days! I'm still on my crafting break but the old wheels are starting to turn, and on a trip to the library today some books on celtic symbols caught my eye - an idea in progress maybe! Anyway, instead of crafting pics I've decided to blog some 'lifestyle??!/personal*' pics.
I've had these vintage dinosaur patterns sitting on pride of place beside my laptop now for a few months. I bid for them on E-bay, not expecting to get them, but I did and here they are. I love them! More for inspiration and some pattern construction details, than anything else - I think I should put them in a glass case!
... and since I seem to have been posting a lot of interior shots, here's a pic I took today at the back of our house - it's been a beautiful, sunny, autumn day here so everything looks shiny and glistening - the sea especially:
These frown lines are a bit worrying! - the apron (William Morris design, don't you know!) is what I wear when I'm supposed to be doing something domesticated to put me in 'work' mode - it doesn't always work!
