Friday Photos

This is a last minute post for the Friday Photo Challenge as I only got back from the Festival of Quilts late this afternoon! I had a brilliant time, but I’ll tell you all about it another day…

In the meantime, it’s Friday, so it’s photo challenge time from Postcard from Gibraltar. The theme this week is steps 

These are some of the high level steps I had to walk along at Go Ape a couple of months ago with a group of work friends. I got alot of street cred form my (much younger) work colleagues but boy did I ache for several days!!!

This is Helen with our three dogs, enjoying the spring sunshine sitting on the steps in the garden. Lucy, the fluffy one on the right is our latest addition, she’s my mums dog who is now living with us. You can just see behind them the wooden steps out of the garden, I’m just a bit proud of those as I made them many years ago, just by hammering upright posts in and then standing the riser behind and filling up with gravel.

These are rice paddy fields in Bali, just behind the hotel we were staying in, they were stepped to make the most of the contours.

These gentle steps are in a beautiful  garden attached to Wentworth Woodhouse garden centre. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

There were lots of steps involved in the making of my Down the Rabbit Hole quilt! I’m now going through the even longer steps of quilting it!

These are the stepping stones at Boloton Abbey, crossing over the River Wharfe, luckily there is a bridge right next to it for those like me who take wobbly steps!

Most of our crafts involve making things one step at a time, or one stitch at a time …Craft by Rovaris

…and our walks are definitely one step at a time!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Lots of lovely ‘step’ photos. My favourite is the one with your daughter and the dogs. Good to know I’m not the only mad woman with three dogs (bet you haven’t got five cats as well though have you so I still claim the title 😉 )
