I still haven’t felt inspired to do any more than work on my sock(s). Though I have got beyond the heel now!
I would have got a bit further but when I had got about this far I realised that I had dropped a stitch a couple of rows after finishing the heel and the only safe way to sort the problem was to undo back to that point stitch by stitch!
Not much to show, so I thought I would share a few more of the highlights of my week with you.
Now a few weeks ago when my daughter came down she brought me a bunch of flowers. At the time I was still pretty weary and my granddaughter kindly put them in a vase for me. The flowers lasted well and when they were all gone I rather fancied buying some more but I have been shopping with a back pack lately and flowers would suffer in a back pack.
But then on Tuesday my brother came to visit me and brought lots of flowers! This time I felt up to arranging them myself, not that I have any special skill at this, but they looked so lovely in the vases that I decided to take some photographs.
I don’t have an ideal place to take photographs and by now it was the evening, so don’t expect something exceptional.
First I took some pictures on the dining table.
There were enough flowers for two vases!and similar flowers to the above with roses and ?. The roses are much redder than this but, as someone very colour conscious, I frequently bemoan the ability of cameras to capture colours accurately.
I then took the flowers upstairs to the study to take against a more neutral background but this was taken at ISA 800 by artificial light so I adjusted the colours a bit to restore a green tone to the walls! and The flowers were much more open on Friday so I took a picture of the first vase from above. The other flowers didn’t make an attractive picture from above so I just photographed one of the roses. I was also making some more bread: a white loaf this time, so I photographed that.
