An Afternoon at Kew.....

29th December 2016

Hope you all had a great Christmas, I certainly did.

I am spending a few days with my sister in Richmond and yesterday was such a beautiful day we decided to take a trip to Kew.....



.....part of the illumination walk...


....the Hive, looks like a huge christmas decoration....


.....still frost where the sun couldn't reach....





....red, sparkly tyre decorations....


...grass and seed heads...


....grazing geese...



....walking up the hill in Richmond....



.....the Thames on lower left...


....twinkly London lights...


....such a great afternoon seeing so much natural beauty.

My secret Christmas makes.....


....I used grey linen this time...


....added a knitted coat, felt shoes and a bag...



.....I bought this book at the Hampton Court  Craft Fair earlier in the year....


....really enjoyed making this rag doll for Alba, using some of my indigo dyed muslin and lace for the dress...


.....also made a book bag using up fabric left from my quilt.


Lastly a photo of me reading with Alba...


....she really likes  'lift the flap books!
