Locations ...

I've been out and about looking for interesting places to be photographed in ... Cambridge Botanic Gardens looks a likely contender ... still gorgeous at this time of year when there's not so much in bloom

Cute little hut for storing gardening gear

Mahonia?

A Troll bridge :-))

Snowdrops already!

Birds of paradise in the tropical greenhouses

Lots of ferny alleyways ...

Fabric Swap

I'm a bit late posting this, but over Christmas, I received a wonderful package with this fabric and card in it from Seeks of, The Seek Speaks.  I just happened to mention over at Sew Weekly that I loved it, after she asked for advice on what to do with it and hey presto - a swap was born!    I figure on using it very soon - definitely this year ... Thanks Seeks!

OOOOooooh, Sequins!

My yarn arrived over the holidays from http://www.purplelindacrafts.co.uk/.  It's called 'Galaxy', by King Cole in 'Jupiter' shade and knits up random stripes of black and grey with bits of fluffiness in it.  I've made a start on my shrug to go with my red dress (see previous post)  The sequins are placed at random intervals on the yarn and they are gorgeous, shining in all colours of the rainbow in the light - photo doesn't do it justice!
