Travelling PicStitch BlogHop

Wow time goes fast!  My turn already!

Welcome to the travelling PicStitch BlogHop


Well, I've certainly done some travelling in my time, but sadly, don't have many pics to show for it 
(don't you love it when your laptop crashes!)  

so as this is an international blog hop i thought you'd like to go travelling around the coutryside of Lincolnshire where I live ...


I thought about this early morning shot, love those subtle colours ...

and then there is the local country park I live within walking distance of ...


but, you know me, I like of bit of vibrant colour, and settled on this ...


I often drive past this field, but one day, just had to stop the car, the dark threatening sky against the vibrant rape field 

its been a while since I did any EPP, but I'm always up for a challenge 

so having delved into my stash, I discovered some beautiful fabrics that fitted the bill ...



the colours are a bit off,(must have been one of those rare but bright sunny days!)  but then I started playing with papers and fabric ...

and I forgot how lovely EPP was!


I'm not quite sure where this is heading but I kinda like it and am going to have to make a few more!


Be sure to check out Hadley's blog tomorrow for the next stop in the hop, and link up on the 30th of November for the chance to win some fabulous prizes sponsored by Paper Pieces, Fabricworm, Pink Castle Fabrics, Marmalade Fabrics, Fat Quarter Shop, WantItNeedItQuilt and Aurifil ...

I think in using the pictures like this, it isthrowing up colours that we wouldn't usually put together. Looks lovely.
