Needed some Autumnal fresh air today so off we went for about an hour, wind in our hair and fresh air in our lungs - nothing better. This sort of weather suits me, very cool and breezy, even colder suits me better.
Off we go....
Walking along the quiet back streets
A park on our doorstep
Just one of the beautiful old trees in the park
An hour well spent 💜💜💜

We recently had a new kitchen and there were a few off cuts of wood just waiting to be up-cycled, just a saw was needed to cut a roof for a house template. The snowy roof (s) are done with a hot glue gun and then painted over. Free clip art/images were used as the frontage for both the house and the church. Now they can be displayed on a shelf nearer December!

I belong to a lovely group on Facebook and their latest swap was a fabric dye/distress/stamp one. I am swapping with 6 other UK ladies and decided to stick to dye and stamp. I kept the juice from some frozen berries and made a thin solution with the spice turmeric (plenty of water and spice mixed). I used some old pillow cases for the experiment. I literally just dipped them and hung them over the bath to dry naturally. I wanted the fabric to look 'old' and imperfect. When they dried I used water colour paints (from the tub no mixing) and brushed the colour onto some rubber stamps (clear ones are no good at 'holding' the paint). I used a few paper doilies for the patterns. They seemed to have turned out just right :)

This Saturday myself and hubster were invited to a barbi with friends, the mini marquee was put up to shade us, the drinks flowed and the food was (as always) plentiful and delicious.
It was our friends daughters 24th birthday to :)
