me on Monday

waving to everyone on this bright Monday morning and hoping you are all well.

My weekend was dominated by the rugby World Cup – I watched and enjoyed all 6 matches and got a fair bit of crochet done in the quieter moments

27-sept-15-(14)

I chose this match for my photo as an extra wave to our lovely host Sian – her boys in green are doing well.  I can’t show you much of my current big crochet project until late December but I will say those are half the colours and I’m loving them.

Squeezed into the mornings were unpacking from a midweek trip to Liverpool, sorting through all my photos and watching a local event (more on Wednesday).  I was again very pleased to have a robotic floor cleaner so that I could get the housework done while watching the rugby!

I’ll share some photos of Liverpool for 5 in 5 but for now here are a few from the Anthony Gormley creation ‘another Place’ which has 100 identical statues scattered across 3km of beach north of Liverpool

– it was very windy but I loved the grey clouds and slants of sunlight

Hope you all have a good week

Oh lots of tempting tidbits about future projects. I really like your photos of the wind turbines on the beach with the people walking and the last one with the sun beam - it's just like a sci fi movie opening scene. Hope you have a wonderful week.

What beautiful beach photos - I'd love to see these figures ... Your weekend sounds cosily delightful with things to keep fingers and eyes happily occupied. Wishing you a happy week ahead ...

I'd love to see those figures too. I'm sure it's a very moving experience.

Thank you! I left out a number in my post..they brought on our favourite in this match. He was a couple of years above TTO at school, so I can remember him as a little boy at Going Home Time. Not counting how many years ago..

Have a great week helena. Oh, and I love those crochet colours.

Those figures are fascinating. I would love to see them. It always amazes me how they stand up to the sea.

The figures are on mu list of things to see for next year (hopefully). I love the last photo with the giant windmills in the background.

Never heard of those statues before - how interesting!

Ruth said...

That last shot is fantastic!

Wonderful views Helena, these are one of my favourite sculptures, I love how the light and tide forever changes them. Look forward to hearing more about your visit to Liverpool.

I'm envious of your bright morning. The weather is truly horrid here. Wonderful shots of "Another Place".

What a great looking bunch of yarn colours! Those statues must be really something to see. Discovered we'll be in Liverpool next year (keeping fingers crossed that this time we make the cruise) so hopefully we can see them.
