Unfortunately, the crochet workshop I talked about last week didn't go ahead although I was not totally surprised. Beginners is very popular but not so much the 'Follow On'. I think maybe I need to create a theme for the day so people have a definite idea of what they are
As you may have heard me mention in a previous post back in February, I have been joining in with a CAL over at Look At What I Made so I thought I would give you an update on how I've got on so far. I have a small confession though - that is to say I am running about 5 weeks behind!!! It's getting bigger and bigger and bigger and taking me much longer to do each round. It's about 4ft square already! I am still enjoying it though and am really pleased with the way it's turning out especially as all the yarn was free so it's not costing me a penny :)
It's been a beautiful sunny day here in Devon but very chilly. We thought we would pop out for a breath of fresh air and go and watch the birds from the bird hide up in Yarner Woods. Unfortunately not all the close up photos of the birds came out particularly well but I managed to capture a few.
Can you spot anything in the picture below?
If you look closely, you can just pick out a tiny little mouse.
What a cutie! He was busy picking up all the seeds the birds had dropped.
Here is another visitor beneath the bird feeders
He was so alert
and a couple more clearing up the seed crumbs
Just before you return to the car park you come across this lovely pond
on which we saw three of these strange looking ducks
But aren't they beautiful?
He almost looks like he's been carved out of wood and painted!
I do hope you have all had an enjoyable time this week. I'm popping over to Lucy Blossom Crafts now to join in with Handmade Monday so I can find out what everyone has been up to. I'm also looking forward to joining in with Happy Friday over on Planet Penny's blog.
Thanks for reading!
