Crafty Photo Scavenger Hunt: August

As promised, this month I've been looking for things to photograph for Kirst's inaugural Crafty Photo Scavenger Hunt. I think I might be first with my pictures, but it felt like a Friday sort of post and next week will be too late!

With no further ado...


Yes. That's my bed. And no, I'm not about to reveal any inappropriately inspiring suggestions for sexual acrobatics. I just find that this is the place where I'm most likely to come up with brilliant ideas. Of course, sometimes I wake up the next morning and realise they weren't quite as brilliant as I thought, but still...

Something I Made

Another t-shirt flower, I'm afraid, but this is my favourite so far. I love how the raw edges of the t-shirt material curl into the petals.

Motifs: Birds

Obviously, in an ideal world this would have an actual bird on it but they seem to struggle to find it. Or possibly just don't like scones, which is what it's currently full of. Anyone know if birds like fruit scones?


These are the raw materials for the next quilt. Still very raw, but it's slowly making progress. The eagle-eyed amongst you will spot that it's got some of the material from my bedding (spare pillowcases - no relationships had to end to inspire this one!) so it's, eventually, going to go on the bed.


From our camping trip to Devon in July. I think I actually took this by accident, fiddling with the camera whilst waiting for the kettle to boil, but it just feels like it captured that moment perfectly.

Looking forward to seeing everyone else's pictures. Head over to the Leopard Anchor for a round-up.


  1. Love that holiday photo - somehow it looks like it was taken 30 years ago, I think because of the slightly 70s-esque colours of the blanket, the timelessness of camping, and that there's nothing modern in the picture (no offence intended to car... or indeed blanket)

  2. Lovely photos :)

    Birds will definitely eat fruit scones - is the feeder too well hidden? The birdies have stopped coming to mine because of all the cats. And the sparrowhawk :(

  3. Great photos! I really like your camping photo..reminds me of camping as a child in the summer time, the ideal holiday :)

  4. Thanks all.

    Hedgie - I think it might be. For some reason I must have thought the birds would be able to smell it, or something! The cat's too stupid to put birds off; they sit on the fence and mock him...

    Magie - loved your watering can photo, too. So English!
