Re: Ilona's handmade makes. New thread

Recently finished. I used a piece of fabric with the design already on it, and added some artificial petals painted with glitter glue, embellished it with embroidery, lace, beads, and sequins. A piece of broken jewellery in the centre. It is stretched over a canvas and laced at the back, then fully ...

Re: New Photography Thread.

A foggy walk just before Christmas. I always want to sharpen edges, I think with this one I leave it alone. I like the reflections in the water. https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/a/AVvXsEjbBJMd4sWUozyQMyXggC9cS8sMBaJ8A4_l9hAjWJm-Od2sVGiQuG_uNDZ29aNFb1iu6Ou8e_sHFK1WdtzHKV6w5qIz2fO1YtIdTmtYcW4...

Re: Homemade soup

I suppose the other soaker-upper might be porridge oats. Porridge oats works well. Doesn't need to be a lot as it swells up. Could grind it to a powder first in a blender if you prefer. I use packet sauce mixes, only half the packet, mix with cold water in a mug and add it a few minutes before the ...

Re: Covid - do we just need to get back to normal?

My life has been pretty normal throughout, apart from a few changes I made. I don't go into enclosed areas where there are a lot of people, don't like crowds anyway. I spend a lot of time in my own house and garden, and outdoors driving and walking. I have turned down the chance of a stall at our Ch...

Re: New Photography Thread.

A walk over the Humber Bridge last Sunday. It was getting dark as I walked back to my car, parked on the South Bank.

Re: New Photography Thread.

I don't know much about the camera I use, I just point and shoot. Maybe you could just twiddle the knobs and buttons and put it on automatic, then point and press the shutter.

Re: New Photography Thread.

A walk yesterday around Cawood and Wistow, North Yorkshire. I love trees and skies, can you tell. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ji6kAMlNioA/YYWW2P0ZWeI/AAAAAAAA3Oc/z51CzU-OUbEMrZIKwXN9f6aJ3JPTA5rTgCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h300/IMG_2024.JPG https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-haBe43dMQTE/YYWZqEGkC5I/AAAAAAAA3P0/6Cwge8kcv...

Re: New Photography Thread.

There is so much beauty on our doorsteps. We just have to open our eyes to see it. A local walk yesterday. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-KX4ENSRxqu0/YX2bU5xriDI/AAAAAAAA3K0/A_NCCtTG6wsuNAq7L4mplUXExH5yY0LmACLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h300/IMG_1977.JPG https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UB1mF1clsYc/YX2Z3fZpO_I/AAAAAAAA3KA/...

What is plan B? I don't listen to anything the Government puts out.

Re: Have you started stocking up for ... Christmas?

[/quote] fair comment - that's your prerogative. The topic title specified Christmas with reference for those who might be considering the options available in the coming weeks but I guess no-one is interested or gives a toss anymore on DTL [/quote] I didn't see any exclusions in the question.

Re: New Photography Thread.

Taking a photo in the dark of a moving object is quite difficult. I clicked the shutter about 20 times to get this shot of a tractor going up and down a field cutting the grass. The crop is turf. At the end of a walk I did on Saturday. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-av4Fr1vX_R0/YWtLDzhMTUI/AAAAAAAA3EQ/S...

I have a total ban on Christmas, so I have not and will not.

Re: New Photography Thread.

Yes, seagulls. They seem to be able to sniff out a good meal from miles away. I was a bit lucky with the deer photo's. I was walking through the woods and they were quite close on the other side of a fence. When I came out of the woods there were barriers erected with warning notices saying don't wa...
