Crafty Photo Scavenger Hunt: April

So, of course I am late for my own party - I was a good 15 minutes late for my wedding so it's not exactly a surprise. In the meantime, please go and look at the pictures on these lovely blogs -


Late this year, but the magnolia is out and I LOVE it.

This was in Oxford last week, on a trip for the AGT students to the university. My AGT job has been disappeared in the latest reorganisation (not my actual job, you understand, just the extra bit) so this is probably the last event I will do. Luckily it was a great one! Oxford on its own is quite an inspiring place, I think.

Something I Made
Golf club sock for Mr Z. I made it up as I went along and it worked quite well.

I finished a cardigan this month too, bar the fancification of the button band and adding the buttons, but there'll be a whole post for that soon I expect.

Continuing on the blossom theme, my tulips have just popped out in the garden. What a treat! Normally they're long finished by now. I have these and an ever-increasing quantity of dark purple ones.


My obsession with Nashville has me looking wistfully at my battered old cowboy boots (the real article, from the very cowboyesque Boot Barn in Vegas) and wishing I could get away with wearing them with skirts and not look like I was in costume for something. I have also been planning our summer western adventure, camping in California: maybe I could get away with it there.


Spoilt for choice, really, but I picked this mysterious chunk of rock that has been in our garden for a long time. I remember first seeing it and thinking it was a chunk of raw meat leftover from a barbecue - it is a lot redder than it seems in this picture. I can't remember where it came from but I think it looks quite interesting.
