Crafty Photo Scavenger Hunt: May

Emma is still picking the topics for this - please go and have a nose around everyone else's pictures too!

Something I Have Made
What? You want me to show off my sailor top again? Oh, OK...

It's not finished, but the body of it is and tonight I picked up for the hood/collar so I am hoping it will be done this weekend. It is a perfect fit, I am very pleased. This picture demonstrates the pipin before and after stitching together.

Inspiration
My stash!
 
So. Much. Stash.
Going through it all has inspired me all over again: if only because, hey, it's a little embarrassing to have this amount of yarn in the spare room...

Urban
Capri


Maybe not quite the usual urban, but Capri was some very pretty townage and it reminded me quite a lot of Bristol, with its pastel-coloured houses marching across the hills.

Transport
London buses!

 I was in the smoke last week for a conference and got off the bus early to walk down Oxford Street - it was a novelty for it to be so quiet. It looked amazing in the sun: very clean and tidy and with the flags and buses stretching as far as I could see. It felt very, very British. I'm sorry my phone isn't better at pictures because this doesn't do it justice. It's totally time for a new phone.

Motifs: Graffiti
It's not exactly a motif, but it is one of my favourite graffiti finds, from the wall of the local battered women's shelter a few years ago -
Yes, sometimes, I suppose it really does.
I feel a bit sad about this one because Bristol has some absolutely gorgeous street art, particularly around the People's Republic of Stokes Croft, but I only ever seem to pass it when I'm driving. There was also the See No Evil urban art project last year which I am hoping will be repeated.

Thanks for picking, Emma! Hopefully see you next month!
