July Scavenger Hunt


 

Reflection
The mirrored doors in the room I use when I go and stay with my dad


Stripe
Stripes of basic embroidery stitches 


Secret
Harry Potter had a chamber of them


Red
The little red spotted lid on the tiny jam jar I keep my knitting stitch markers in


Contrast
The contrasting colours and fabrics being used for my grandson's quilt


Forgotten
The vintage egg collecting basket housing stone flower pots


Soft
Not sure what this shrub is called, but the flower looks soft and fluffy


Cold
Ice lollies in the freezer for pudding


Seat
Our sadly neglected garden seat


My Choice
No one ever believes me this happens........... seagulls sitting on the bird feeder. I wouldn't mind but I took the trouble to grind down the peanuts this morning so the other birds could get a look in........ This seagull physically pushed a pigeon out of the way

  1. Great photographs. Seagulls are so cheeky aren't they. Your embroidery looks very neat. X

  2. Great photo's, we don't get seagulls just huge wood pigeons. Love your photo of the stacked pots, I would call it possibilities. Can't wait to see your grandsons quilt finished.

  3. Interesting interpretation of Hawthorn's words! Thank goodness we do not get seagulls; I've enough problems keeping the jackdaws, crows, wood pigeons, pheasants and squirrels off the bird feeders so that the little ones stand a chance! Favourite picture? The Magnums!

  6. As I mentioned last time, I can well imagine it after I saw the photos of a seagull attacking a Blogger friend for her Cornish Pasty! A nice selection!

  7. Love all your pictures especially the little red lidded jar and as for that cheeky seagull....he is far too big for your bird feeder anyway! We too get wood pigeons, two, one named Woody and the other Pie but as there are only two, we encourage them.

  9. Lovely selection. My stitch markers are only coloured plastic 'things' and I'll look forward to seeing your quilt when finished. As for bird feeders, we mostly have sparrows and turtle doves with occasional galahs and eastern rosellas. Every now & then the corellas co me in, but we shoo them away as they are very destructive. Thanks for sharing & take care.

  10. I like your basket and the stone flower pots. I have the same bench as you! I love the sound of seagulls and they seem to be coming inland quite a lot recently. I suppose the novelty wears off when you're bombarded with them! x

  14. I remember doing strips of basic embroidery stitches when I was at school. Wish I could remember how to do them now. Your grandsons’ quilt is going to be so beautiful.
