Hi all - a bit late today as only just returned from a break away in Sunny Swansea, South Wales UK.
Obviously no crafting done but I did manage to come home with a few trinkets from my Mother's mega post-closing a wool shop down some years ago hoard!
I got a few reels of satin ribbon in rather patriotic colours (and purple velvet) a few reels of thread and a bag of delicious buttons! I tore the top off our chip box as I am sure I can find a way to scrap it when I eventually get around to the photos. We only took 934 between us over 5 days!
I did take the chance to find the last few elusive photos for the Summer Scavenger Hunt. There just had to be #19 a fishermen by the sea now didn't there? I got one with the Mumbles Pier in the background and from the other direction with Oystermouth Castle in the background. Spot the lads launching themselves off the steps into the sea at high tide too!! Scary.
On a trip out we happened upon a charity walk for prostate cancer with lots of men dressed in pink! I snapped one as we drove by and I think he'll do nicely for the, #09 A photo of someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong item don't you?
Then we drove up onto the common to the little provincial airport for the #04 Airplane photo. Got a jet and a little plane.
We even spotted a Red Kite above us too - a rare sight.
Here's a few others which have been waiting for this post too. Another contender for the #01 Open air Market taken in Sutton and #20 a dinosaur sitting outside "the Works" in Sutton too. Plus my son in his patriotic t-shirt for the bonus one of a person wearing an outfit (or item of clothing) that symbolised your country.
Oh and for the crafty aspect the card I made up with my cross stitch which not only is my surname initial but also my Mother's forename so I gave it to her as a thanks for having us these past few days.
So come join the fun at WOYWW hosted by Julia.

- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.
