Friday Photo Challenge

These Fridays come round awfully quickly! Today’s theme set by Postcard from Gibraltar is ‘reflective‘. Follow the link to see more reflections!

Catbells is a bit of a recurring theme in my embroideries, it’s my favorite mountain in the Lake District. I’ve lots of photos of it reflecting in Derwentwater and they’ve come in useful as inspiration for various projects. This was a postcard block for Kate’s Signed, Tealed & Delivered quilt.

The shisha mirrors on this embroidery really reflect the light and shine like stars, which is lucky seen as it was for a travelling sketchbook on Astronomy!

Catbells again! This was for the Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbook, an international one I was involved in a couple of years ago.

This is the River Wharfe in Otley where I live. It was Otley Show day, hence all the marquees. It was a beautiful morning as I made my way down with my entries.

A more moody view, this is Ullswater in the Lakes, rain was coming down the valley but the sun shine was doing it’s best and reflecting on the lake.

Catbells again!! I told you it was a recurring theme! This was the first embroidery I did of Catbells, as you can see it was used to cover my travelling sketchbook on the theme of mountains.

It’ll be Christmas before we know it!! I always make an Advent ring, I love seeing the candle light reflecting on the stained glass window between our dining room and hall.

The beady-eyed ones amongst you may remember this from last week (steps theme) this week it’s for the beautiful reflection of Bolton Abbey in the River Wharfe.

This is a jelly roll race quilt I made for a friend in greens and purples, moorland colours to reflect our love of walking.

And finally a wedding cake I made for a friend a couple of years ago. I made white roses and cherry blossom to reflect the interests of the happy couple, Yorkshire where she was born and Japan which he loves.

Have a good weekend 🙂

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!
