The tiniest amount of snow and the robins come out and pose.
If I knew what I was doing in this second robin shot, the robin would be brighter and more defined. I do however, like this shot because the camera is telling a big fat lie and making you think the robin is on a branch with a snow topped field in the background that seems to stretch on forever. In reality this was not the case. The background was a bit snowy, but it was some vertical snow over a tin roof. Chief says I go for the arty creative shots, I suspect he may be right.
When I'd done things like clear the path of snow and drag the rubbish bins out. I went inside to warm up my freezing cold toes and started work on my Mouthy Stitches swap item. It's been made in my head for some while. However, the rules of the swap say it has to actually be made in the real world because no partner we know of is telepathic and able to download the made item from my head to the their hands.
I started pulling fabrics in red, white and blue. That'll teach me to have 'The King's Speech' on in the background! I've got a lot of ideas for my partner and you may or may not be seeing something that ends up in the actual pouch. So I'll leave you with this sneaky peek. It looks significantly less inspiring close up as it does viewed from a distance. Ho hum that might be the story of my sewing life...
