Long time no squeak! 29 project: Days 167 - 176

I have a BIG 29 project update here and apologies for the not so great quality of some of the photos...My photography is always a bit hit and miss!

It's been a busy week, what with dressage lessons on Pia, a competition, lots of printing and making and getting things stocked up for Christmas, and other familial things going on, which was ended with a fun weekend in a big house with lots of friends on a cliff top near the most southerly point in the UK. Phew!

Anyway, here you go: 29 project - Days 167 - 176...

Day 167: Friday 5th November - Sorry, it's not fireworks, I missed out on that this year. Sob! But I did get to ride Pia instead which is always fun. We had a late afternoon lesson and by the time I got home it was too late for fireworks...here she is with my mama waiting for me to let them out of the lorry...
Day 167 - Mama and Pia

Day 168: Saturday 6th November - Sunset over the A30. I had another lesson and the sunset on the way home was pretty spectacular. Have I mentioned that I do love the light at this time of year? (Ha, many times, I know!)

Day 169: Sunday 7th November - Reviewing the lessons. I like to have any lessons I have videoed so that I can look over them again and refresh my mind with what I have learned...also to watch and see that what I am feeling from on top is right with what it looks like from the ground. Pia is learning new things at the moment so it's all very exciting!
Day 169 - Me and Pia on the telly

Day 170: Monday 8th November - Printing printing lots of Triangle Dogs today and making lots of Autumn bracelets too.

Day 171: Tuesday 9th November - Spicy noodle soup! It's an awful picture, sorry, but my first attempt at noodle soup was a flavoursome (and really, really spicy) success! Yay.

Day 172: Wednesday 10th November - Smiling Kizzie. Mark and I went around to his mama's house to make her some food...this is her poocher, Kizzie giving us a grin.

Day 173: Thursday 11th November - Wrapped paintings. Off to a new home this week...

Day 174: Friday 12th November - Off for the weekend! The house my friends and I stayed in for the weekend was super. It is perched on the cliff overlooking Kennack Sands down near The Lizard in West Cornwall and it was really lovely. All wood paneled walls, wood burners and sea views. Here's a (not great again!) pic of us settling in for an evening by the fire...
Day 174 - Home for the weekend.

Day 175: Saturday 13th November - We took a walk to blow away the cobwebs...there was streams to cross, lots of mud, and ponies by the beach. The rest of the day was spent with beer, knitting, crochet, magazines, curry and early hours fireworks. Ace.
Day 175 - Walking Friends

Day 176: Sunday 14th November - Sunday seaside sun. The sun came out at last and the view was beautiful!
Day 176 - Morning Sea

There are more pics of printing and walking over at my Flickr too.


Also, just a little heads up: Brass Autumn Bracelets are now back in stock and I also added a few new Agate Necklaces to the shop on Friday. You can see and shop them here: JEWELS!

We're going to need the soup recipe.

Lovely photos! I wish I had the patience for dressage, my horse and I are a tad unfit these days!

Also, I was wondering where you source your totes from? I love the idea of making my own to print on but need to conquer my sewing machine fear first!

...and lovely wrapping!

Rowan - I will post it soon! I am going to attempt it again this week and will picture my efforts a little better this time...

hello birdy - There are lots of companies out there making blank totes for very reasonable prices so you don't need to worry about sewing them yourself...try googling 'blank cotton bags' to find companies who suit what you need. Good luck!

ANNA - Thanks, I always enjoy making them :)
