Last Week for 52 Weeks Word Photo Challenge!!

Can you hear the drum rolls and trumpets playing?  I can!!.

We have had a fun year, and i do hope that you, and others, will join in next year for our Monthly Old Picture Challenge

I will post all the rules and regulations (!!!!??")  ( just an explanation for everyone really!!) during the first week of 2015, with the first word happening on the first Sunday evening in January.   It should be even more fun than this year!

ANyhow, it is now time for our last week of picturs to be shown.

I did give 5 words last week, and said please do 1 or as many as you like.  I myself, have only had time to do 2, and here they are:-

I chose "ball" as my first word:

I do have many a ball of yarn to show you here !

This mauve and pink lot I'm not sure of what I will be doing with yet, but I do think it will be something like a scarf. The yarns are silk and silk blends, so it will be lovely for a summer scarf

I have had this Schoppel Wolle Wunderklecks ball for years, I think it may become another scarf!

I'm really not sure if the S.W.W. I showed you in the precious picture, really belongs with these blues 0 mohair and cotton and silk - destined to become a feather and fan knitted scarfie thing for me! I think the grey can go though also, just doesn't fit, does it?

My next word that I chose was "past"

I am long past the day I should have posted this baby quilt now!  It is for the little great great grand daughter, of course.

It will have wide white borders with some scraps in them, and a cream binding..

This picture really does not do the colours justice, it is very bright and colourful, I'm sure Ella will love it!

And here is a close up, a little closer to the correct colours.

It was supposed to be a Christmas present, but it will be late I am afraid!  I'm still getting over all the hospital stays and struggling to get ahead with things. Hopeful;ly next year will improve.

Well, there are my pictures.  I have enjoyed seeing everyone else's, I do hope you have some more for me to look at tonight! Just sign on with Mr Linky below, and    I will be back then after Christmas.

Alan and I do wish all of you a very, Merry Christmas and we Hope you all have a Happy and Safe New Year.

Please take care.

Week 47 of 52 Weeks Word Photo Challenge

Hi everyone, I'm glad you are back with me!!

2nd last week and still going strong - well, sort of!!

Without any more chit chat, let me show you my 3 pictures for today:

Handy is our first word this week, so this is a picture of our Handy Hand!~  It is so simple, and yet it comes in so handy for picking things up that are on the floor!

Our second word is YARN, so of course here is my secret yarn stash, or really, part of the stash which I am using for Christmas gifts at the moment.

Third word is CHIP, and here is a picture of my very favourite chips!

Thats me for today, just sign into Mr Linky and show us your pictures!

I'll see you tomorrow evening for our LAST week this year's words!

52 Weeks Word Photo Challenge

Hi everyone - good to see you here with your pictures, ready to upload!!

So this was our first week doing 2 pictures - did you find it alright, or was it too much? I ask only because I'm thinking of giving 3 words for next week, before the following week, which will be the last week of this challenge.  If you can follow that!!

To say again, not next week, but the week after, will be the last of our 52 week challenge for this year.

I don't know about anyone else, but I am far too busy from then on, to have to take the required photographs and continue right up until the new year.  Is everyone happy with that?

Let me know in the comments on this post, and I'll endeavour to go along with what you all would like to do.

We will start our new Monthly Challenge (for want of a better name -= leave it with me, I may come up with something yet!!) on the first Sunday evening of 2015. The rules to follow will be posted again then.

Hope everyone is happy with that.

So, back to this weeks photoes. Here are my two:-

Number 1 is my chair in our TV room. An old quilt over it, to protect it, I can raise my feet up and relax, while I madly crochet or embroider while the television is on.

Number 2 is Priscilla's toes! Covered and surrounded by long curly dirty hair, she is due for a haircut tomorrow, so they will be nicely trimmed and hairless then! This is how they look the day before - yuck!!she slides on the tiles and loses her footing everywhere, so does Tommy!

So that's me for today, I'll be back tomorrow evening with three words if you agree.

2015 Finish-Along

Well, here i s some excitement for next year!

I am going to join in with Adrianne of  On The Windy Side for her 2015 Finish-Along.

Will you join in with me?  I have done very little quilting lately, due to  hospital visits etc, so now I will have to get all the unfinished quilt tops, finally finished in 2015.

Might I say "not a moment too early", I am feeling like a regular lazy bones ,so next year this will all change, and I can get right back into doing some more work on those things that have been languishing for so long. By the way, it's not only quilting that can be included, it's knitting and crocheting    as well, so that means me!

Just click on the box on my sidebar , and read all about it.  We will be starting in January.   Let me know if you decide to join in too, we can support one another!

Have a great week and take care.

the 2 words are "chair" and "toe".

This will be an exciting week, won't it.
