Snap a squirrel

I took the scenic route to meet friends for coffee and walking through the park I spotted a squirrel pottering around on the grass.

I know that some people think of them as tree rats or an alien pest that has decimated the indigenous red squirrel

but I still think they are cute and fun to watch

I love that bushy tail

Memorandum Monday in colour

I enjoyed creating with colourful yarns over the weekend - colour inside very much needed as the weather was grey much of the time - still grey and wet this morning as I look out the window.

At my crochet, knitting, cake and coffee group on Saturday morning we were chatting about colour preferences when putting together several colours.

some prefer to use a range of shades within the one colour

some like to use a range across 2 colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel

some - including me - like to include a contrast - a colour on the opposite side of the colour wheel

What is your colour range preference - does it differ when thinking about clothes, interior decor and making things?  I like to include contrast in all of these and rarely go for shades within one colour.

And what was I making you ask - inspired by a piece I saw a the makers faire - a sunny piece to hang in my living room

Hoping you all have a good week with some sunshine
