MAY!


Okay I know I'm five months off but I do love May - and I think this month's calendar picture is a bit of a stunner.


'Little Red Riding Hood' by Divica Landrov√°

I would like to thank you all for your concerns about my creative mojo. He has been spotted in the vicinity - indeed he appeared to be with friends - but has not yet decided to return. Meanwhile I've decided to relax into creative idleness for a tick and drink lots of tea.

Something has been happening outside though.
The sky has gone a funny colour - not sure what you'd call it? B? Bl? Blurr - no it escapes me.




This happened


And this popped up but I've got no idea what it is or where it came from


This is still going strong


And Granny is going to be putting on her bonnet any time now


Plus this little feathery chap has been bothering me in the most delightful way

What are YOU looking at?

Don't you just love the birds?

Happy May all!

  9. HAs yours shown any signs of returning, Jane? I dragged a sampler (not cross stitch) out of obscurity and photographed it, wrote a lesson plan, made a flier and hoyed meself up to a shop which had been asking me to run a workshop for the last 6 months. SO....I have FORCED myself to get back into stitching. I hope more things will follow! Good luck with yours, and Happy May to you!

    1. I know it's near - I keep having some lovely crafty ideas but when it comes to doing them it runs away again - so it's a bit like I've got the mo without the jo. I'll keep trying x

  10. I *think* the flower might be a tulip that has opened up fully? I might be wrong - probably am - so please ignore me if that is just nonsense! :oD

    1. Well it's definitely a bulb but unlike the other tulips it opens in the sun and closes at night - a lily perhaps?

  13. I do believe it's called 'Spring Fever'! So hard to stay inside crafting when the flowers are blooming! Looks like you have some really lovely ones there. xx

  14. Isn't it wonderful? The sun is high, flowers are open and birds sing. I love the red riding hood! Lovely!

  15. There is also now, apart from beautiful flowers, a lovely spring green mist appearing in the trees! I did wonder if they would ever burst into leaf this year. Happy May! x

    1. Exactly - I keep meaning to photograph the trees on a regular basis to chart the change in colour but never quite get around to it x

  16. The yellow flower is definitely a type of tulip. I had them before in my garden before somebody dug all the bulbs on me!! The open in the sun and close at night and heavy rain don't they?? If so I'm positive it's a tulip.

  20. Perhaps your mojo and my mojo are off frolicking somewhere together. :) I definitely need to just pick up hook or needle and get to work on something. I've been enjoying reading so much as I haven't taken the time to do it in so long but it's time to create again. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  24. I love the way you write, you make me laugh! Yes, the blue skies and birdsong are a bit of a shock after that looooong winter, but so lovely. Although the bird that goes mental at 5am and wakes up my son can fly off, please. x

  25. Don't you just love spring? Your flower shots are lovely. =)

  26. Glad to hear that your mojo's not so very far away ... they do have a tendency to take off with boys I find ... mine's been missing for ages ... you don't suppose they're together do you?

    Happy May :)
