Boxing Day Stroll

I'm trying hard not to go stir crazy at the moment. Whilst I've been having fun looking back at my City and Guilds work,I am finding it very frustrating not to be sewing or painting at all.

However as you may have noticed, I can take photos as long as I hold my small Fuji camera upside down with my left hand which has made me realise that some pictures look better that way :-) So when offered the chance to go out for an hour or so, I donned my funky sling (batik elephants) and grabbed the camera.

Lovely photos! I think Rufford is possibly better in winter than in summer - less crowded and some lovely colours reflected in the lake - the birds are more eager to come closer too!

Well, what a lovely blog. I'm just pootling around blogland and having a good nosey about. I've enjoyed your C&G project development. Very thorough and I love the final outcome.
