Photo Challenge

This weeks photo challenge is a tricky one for me, the theme set by Postcard from Gibraltar is nocturnal. Now I am definitely not a nocturnal person, I struggle to stay up to midnight on New Years Eve, never mind any other night! On a dark evening I’d much rather be tucked up in my sewing room than going out. As a result I have very few nocturnal photos, so I’m bending or stretching it a bit!

I’ve tried to avoid Christmassy things in October but needs must! This is my advent ring from last year, each Sunday in Advent we light another candle, the red one in the middle is the usual  daily Advent Candle. I love seeing the ring all lit up on the dark December nights, it’s heralds the start of Christmas for me.

This was an embroidery I did last year for the travelling sketchbooks. The theme was Astronomy so I did a night sky scene.

Isn’t this iris beautiful, it’s almost black, I’m sure it’s name was something like Midnight (I warned you the links were tenuous!)

Please ignore the headress, I was on my way to a 1920’s evening! It’s my cape you’re meant to be looking at. I love this cape, I made it about 30 years ago in Midnight Blue velvet, bought straight from the factory near us. It’s commonly known as my Scottish Widows cape is it is like one in their advert! The advantage of a cape is that if you make one age 24 when you’re size 8, it still fits you 30 year later when you are several sizes larger!

Please follow the link over to Postcard from Gibraltar, I’m sure everyone else will have photos nearer to the theme 🙂

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!

    I’d call it imaginative interpretation rather than tenuous.
