This is the knitting that Rosie says she never touched. For a friend's baby , made it in a day.

*A request for photo advice*
Not the greatest photo, by any means, but I took this with my new $14.95 keychain digital camera. I'm using it as my avatar this week, but wanted to share a bigger version here, because these dolls are one of my favorite possessions.



The quality is about a $14.95 camera's worth, I guess. The tiny little thing is very picky about lighting. Had to seat the dolls directly next to a lamp for them to show up.
Does anyone have any suggestions how I could sufficiently light a picture of my band of beastly felines? Thanks!

What lucky baby she will be to have such a cute outfit.

Maybe you will get a picture of her in it and you can show us what she looks like.

I love Rosie and your knitting, Ren !

I hope I'll be forgiven because this one's not taken it's been scanned , but I have to post it.

It is the most wonderful card I've ever seen - our beloved Sue crafted it and sent it over. Thank you!

Harold's Bridge at Waltham Abbey, to quote from local tourist information "The only remarkable feature of the bridge is that it hasn't yet fallen down yet".
It is classed as a historic monument though, and reputed to be one of the oldest bridges in England.
In fact it's nothing to do with king Harold, though he is interred nearby, and dates from the early 14th century.

TV "celebrity chefs" make me reach for the remote control as fast as politicians do, and I've never bothered much about famous graves. But when I found that Elizabeth David was buried in the tiny downland village of Folkington, I thought I ought to see the grave (the plaque on the wall behind marks the grave of her uncle, who was a long serving mayor of Eastbourne).

When I worked at the airport I got some nice photos. These are Canadair CL 215 water bombers.






It was winter when I took this photo, they're hard at work now, as it's been very dry this spring and the forest fire situation has become extreme.

I finished off April with a photo of the train station, so I'll start May with one of the bus station.

Mada, you are a genius! I have been taking photos of some of the cards I have made with poor results because of the flash on metallic etc. It didn't occur to me to scan them! Duh!

Thank you for that idea.

It's not about being a genius Sue. It's just that I didn't have another choice at the moment.

This is Gnawra. Her parentage is extremely doubtful, she was found by the rubbish bins in the village at about 8 days old, eyes closed and not expected to live till the next morning.She is now about 3, untrainable , not very bright,or beautiful , but she is loyal and funny.

Sue, if for some reason you can't scan take the photo outside of the cards then there is no worries about the flash.

Here's a hornet I found buzzing around on the kitchen window this morning. The coin is 2cm diameter. Going by this, I reckon the insect was between 3 and 4cm long. Once it was safely under a one pint lager glass, I made it pose for several photographs. Couldn't get it to smile though.



Here's another shot.

It's not only the Pharaohs who had themselves buried in pyramids. This is the 25-foot-tall sepulchre of John ("Mad Jack") Fuller, squire of Brightling in Sussex for about fifty years. Local legend used to say that he had his corpse embalmed in full dress and seated at a dinner-table with a capon and a bottle of wine, with the floor of the pyramid strewn with broken glass to prevent the Devil from seizing him. Alas, the pyramid is quite empty above ground and Jack is conventionally interred underneath it.

I have some lovely shrub roses around my deck. Here is a close up of one of them.







She's hard to see but there is a bee in the center gathering pollen.

This afternoon I went in search of an icecream van, and an icecream. It ocurred to me that perhaps icecream vans are not too common for some of our members.

When I was a child they used to tour the streets playing a tune as most homes wouldn't keep icecream in the house, it was a treat. Sadly I think that practice has ended. Here in Jersey they park at strategic points around the island in the summer months. I bought a '99'.

Ren he is a beauty even if he is not too smart. Sue we have an ice-cream van who comes around usually on the weekend, but they are sadly dying out here too.

She's a lot bigger than she looks on this photo! Not often you see a lioness reclining like this - taken at our local zoo 'Paradise Park'.

I took lots of trees and gardens today but for a change here's one of me sitting in what used to be my local park.
