Beautiful view of Chanctonbury Ring. Unfortunately my feet are less so, rather manky in fact.

Look - no beard!

You don't want to know what I did to get him to do this...

Symbolic rather than Scenic picture today - the halfway mark!


We had an exciting day today: giant chalk balls, I fell over and M had a skid problem.

Now known as Turtle Hill. In the distance the white speck is where we spent last night. Blisters: loads, 1000 mile socks failed me.

We set off this morning from Winchester at 9am thanks to P & G getting up early for the Farmers Market. Currently halfway to East Meon at The Millburys, refuelling & refreshing for the afternoon ahead. Blisters 1.

On a Sunday afternoon walk. He wasn't miserable - just snapped him in a funny few seconds. This was our last weekend walk before our holiday next week - walking the South Downs Way. So this blog will become more Kitty + Trek or Kitty + Sore Feet

Back to School

College starts again tonight. I have been prep'ing by playing with some texture. One the exercises I have been working on is manipulating with paper: weaving, ripping and curling, pleating and well...erm holepunching and gluing. I love it when I need to get my glue stick out!

I'm not that evil really

You Are Somewhat Machiavellian

You're not going to mow over everyone to get ahead...
But you're also powerful enough to make things happen for yourself.
You understand how the world works, even when it's an ugly place.
You just don't get ugly yourself - unless you have to!

Applique for a wall hanging

I have completed a little simple machine applique of 3 panels to make into a wall hanging for my niece. Each panel will be sewn on the backing as a pocket. The colour choice is pink and the theme fairies. The first one I did I used the colouring of my niece:

Sophie Fairy

Then I decided to change the hair and colouring to that of her Mummy:

Mummy Fairy

Then I decided that to complete the Trio I really needed the next generation up:

Grandma Fairy

The Grandma Fairy even has her own string of pearls!

Found that I got more even results by using tearaway stabiliser. Surprisingly never used this product before but very handy. Even handier are the applique scissors I got from barnyarns and were used on the Carrickmacross attempt shown in previous post. The scissors helped in the reverse applique technique used for the fairy wings.
