Thursday Trios – #10

Mama Cormier has a photo challenge in which she asks us to look for photographs showing a trio of objects. This is my first attempt at Thursday trios and have quite enjoyed it.

The first photograph is of a trio of yarn just sat ready and waiting for me to attempt to crochet a hexagon cardigan.

The second photograph is a cluster of three stitches (I know it is a little bit more difficult to see with the colour) being used to make the cardigan.

The third trio is a trio of bands from the used balls of yarn.

Now we are getting to the sewing up stage I have 3 clip ready to hold the pieces together as they are connected.

Friday photo hunt – Signs of spring/autumn

As we continue with Kates Friday photo hunt Kate is giving was two words and asking us to post photographs for either one or both of the words. This weeks words are signs of spring or signs of autumn.

Favourite signs of spring

This first photograph was taken on a recent lockdown walk in the park with Mr H and Charlie dog.

I love to see the snowdrops in the park as I always think that they are the first signs of the end of winter and start of spring.

Some of my other favourite signs that spring is definitely on its way thanks to Mother nature. The crocus flowers just starting to show ready to burst into bloom and the daffodils bright and yellow make it feel so cheery.

Favourite signs of Autumn

The falling leaves starting to appear on the ground showing us that Autumn is on its way.

Then as we continue through autumn the bare branches that we once full of colour and life.
