Photo Scavenger Hunt - April 2012

Good evening

Another month has almost ended - what a difference to last April. Then we spent the almost the whole of the month searching for April Showers photos - I think it rained just one day at the beginning of that month! I've seen our local forecast and apparently we've had rain every day this month except the 1st! I quite believe it - its been tricky to get this months photos as the light has been awful and outdoors often to soggy.

Anyhow I completed the list yesterday and after a bit of tweaking - here are my offerings for April;

Rock - Aldeburgh seaside rock - the models have since been eaten by the teenagers ;)

In/Out - the needle of my sewing machine has worked overtime this month.

Amazing - the amount of rain we've had here in the drought areas!!

Can't live without - my weekend glass or two of wine!

On the move - one of the model steam engines at the Long Shop opening event.

Smile - one birthday girl and her cake (made by me).

 Spring - cherry blossom (all gone now after the storms of the weekend).

Multi-coloured - the dress I made for my sister hanging against the fabric for one of my new dresses.

Sticky - Hot Cross Bun dough

Tangle - my embroidery threads.

Indulgence - 2 new magazines in the same week - actually in the same month - I try hard not to buy many magazines these days - blogs are far better reading :)

Direction - my neighbours weather vane - I think its supposed to be a traditional farmer rather than the Grim Reaper!!
Thanks as ever to Kathy for coming up with the list and for you lot for looking and commenting.

See you soon

What a lovely collection of photographs - love the colours of your threads. If that's the Long Shop museum in Leiston, my Great Granddad used to work there - it's on my list of places to visit :o)

Crikey, that does look like the grim reaper. Hope they are pointing him the other way! I like being inside and sewing when it is rainy, it always feels particularly productive. Lovely photos, Ellen x

Patrice said...

Nice shots - love Rock!

Ruth Kelly said...

Winner - you have the best one for rock. I am still in awe of the direction and the grim reaper. How unusual!

Lisa said...

Snap with the rock!
Really good collection, I love the sticky one with the dough, looks so scrummy.
Tangled embroidery threads are a familiar find in my house too!

Alex said...

The weather vane is a bit terrifying, isn't it?!

The cake is a delight though, as is the birthday girl :)

No wonder she is smiling, that cake looks yummy. Don't like the weather vane though!

Alice said...

Nothing beats seaside rock! xxx

Alison said...

You are so right - I well remember going outside and watering my plants to get a good pic for the shower one last April. I really love your in and out pics they are very good.

Sandra said...

Lovely photos - clever in/out, beautiful blossoms and your 'can't live without' made me smile - that went through my mind too! x

Kezzie said...

Oh no, please do let me think of it as the Grimreaper- that's much more funny!!
Great photos!!! I love the rock one! I was also going to do sewing for in/out but I didn't manage to find a victim to photograph!!!
