Lynda kindly took me up to the mountain behind Pontardulais to walk around the Lliw Reservoir.
At the swimming pool the following day one of the ladies who always swims at the same time as us told me Lliw means Colour in Welsh -and it was a day of such fabulous luminescent Autumn sunlight that it certainly lived up to its name !
Oh and the pleasures of kicking though those crunchy crisp Autumn leaves !
Lynda even hopped athletically over a gate to snap a close up of the amazing mushroom we saw on a fallen log !
I wanted to show you a few snaps of us all at our Craft Club last Wednesday - Lynda had made up some great Christmas card kits so we could all experiment with Texture Paste - we all had great fun getting messy & trying something new ! Do try it with your stencils !
Whoops - those biscuits in full shot are a bit of a give-away aren't they !
Next club meeting - we meet fortnightly - we thought we would play with Masterboards (I keep calling them Motherboards by mistake but Much Beloved tells me they are something else entirely !!)
I also finished another Journal 52 page - still playing catch up but am determined to finish the year ! This one's challenge theme was "Making Time"
Oh and just what is actually on my workdesk this week - well beans & chillies drying ! The beans are my crop from the handful of beans I brought back from San Francisco in January & grew this Summer - I wasn't exactly Jack & the Beanstalk but they were fun to experiment with & I just love their amazing patterns !
Have a great week !
PS I was really chuffed that Jo Firth Young featured my card from her class the other weekend on her blog this week !!
