Word Photo Challenge 2016 - Week 13

Hallo everyone, good to see you back for another week!

This weeks word was "Gallery" - that was a bit difficult I thought to start.

But then, once you think about  it, there is just one way to go!

Like so:-


Our very own local Art Gallery!

and a second view, showing some  sculpture work from local artisans.

It is a lovely building and is right in the heart of our city.         We really don't go to look as often as we should!

So feel free to join in and show us your local gallery also! Just sign in belows with Mr Linky and I'll be back soon with our next week word.

Take care

Word Photo Challenge 2016

I'm  baaaack! Sorry for being so long missing, but it was Mothers Day and everything, so this is the second long week in the challenge - I'll try not to do anymore!

So the weeks (fortnights) word is CREATIVE, and have I got a photo for you!!

My friend offered me this a while ago, and finally I am able to stretch my CREATIVE mind and learn how to  use it!

"What is it?" I hear you ask.

"It is this" I reply:



I hear you ask again "What is it?", to which I reply "It is an Empisal KH91 knitting machine".

I'm sure you can understand how this machine is streatching my creative brain to its absolute limits! I can knit by hand, but I have never ever used a knitting machine, let alone one this old and beautiful!

But , believe me, I am learning fast - I can now cast on and knit plain rows, so I'm going well.

Now I just need to learn about this:


I'm sorry you cannot see this well, but this is the Empisal KH90 ribber, it attaches (!) to the flat bed machine, and i will be able to make all sorts of exciting things with these!

In the plastic bucket on the bottom is a load of lovely soft fabric for the backs of quiltm, and in the top box there are all the original manuals for these machines, plus lots of yarn!

Aren't I a lucky girl??!

I am really so happy with this, I am looking forward to letting my creativity take over once I learn all the basics.

So join in below and show us your "creative" and I will be back  Tuesday with next weeks word.

Word Photo Challenge 2016 - Week 11

Welcome to you all, I'm glad to see you back with me!

I do hope that all my fellow Australians had a great Anzac Day long weekend, and another great time this weekend for May Day!!

So, we have not had any rain for so very long - until last night, when it rained lightly all night, and didn't stop until late this morning!

So my "Green" is no more than a photograph of my beautiful, happy, satiated back garden!!


So we have gone from dry grass that crackled when you walked on it, to green overnight! You can still see the browner patches amongst the green - I think we need another downpour tonight yet!


You can still see the grass is not as green around the edges in this phto - but all the plants are standing up and look very thankful!!

I must say that I was disappointed when noene had a go for the "clean" prize, though I do understand that sometimes it is very difficult to get around to everything, and there is always the next time. So I'm not worried at all.

So sign up below with Mr Linky and let us all see your "green".

I will be back soon with this week's word.

Take Care

ANZAC Day 2016




They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.  
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.

Lest we forget.
