DAY 269 - vivid

I love the vivid colours of autumn flowers.

DAY 268 - favourite colours

I have different favourite colours depending on the situation - in the kitchen I love yellows, oranges and whites.

DAY 267 - on your desk

The baskets on my craft desk are for the workshops on some basic polymer clay techniques.

DAY 266 - a random item

I generally don't like hearts in any form - but when I saw this crochet pattern in a German magazine I decided to make a new cloth for the living room coffee table.

DAY 265 - fruit

DAY 264 - backlit

DAY 263 - negative space

There isn't as much negative space in this photo as in the previous one.

DAY 262 - bug

One of the many many things that bug me is junk mail - first the quantitiy that we receive and then the piles that are left everywhere in the house even if all the family members have been kindly and less kindly asked continuously to put them in one place so that they can be taken to the recycling bin every week. I could do a fortnight of posts on things that bug me at home and another one on "eeks" from work.

I love the fact that September is nearly over, I am looking forward to October. All the best, Kristina.

DAY 261 - ground level

I posted photos of these flowers last week but I love them so much that I had to snap them at the ground level as well.

DAY 260 - leaves
DAY 259 - tree
our pear tree in the afternoon light

DAY 258 - fall
Yellow leaves are appearing, the greens are fading, some leaves are falling down - fall is definitely here.

DAY 257 - nails
I wish a magic fairy came out of nowhere and manicured my nails.

DAY 256 - arms
My arm looks huge here - like a trunk.

DAY 255 - hair
It is so thick it always looks unruly and unfortunaltely not one bit of colour is mine.
Have a nice week.

Day 254 - legs

The stool was made by my late father and he insisted on adding legs while I wanted just a red die with white dots.

DAY 253 - feet

My daughter inherited my triangular feet.

DAY 252 - eyes

my second pair of eyes

DAY 251 - hands

I don't really like these "body parts" posts. They are embarrassing. My hands look very old, I just hope I will be able to create using them for a long time, no matter how they look.

DAY 250 - colour

To celebrate day 250 have a look at all the colours in my garden. Just lovely, isn't it?

DAY 249 - something you wear

I always wear some clips because of my thick and unruly hair.

DAY 248 - twisted

This necklace looks best when the crocheted strands are twisted.

DAY 247 - outside

When I went shopping for clothes with my daughters last weekend I fell in love with those buckets and now they are waiting to be filled with autumn flowers and put outside (on wooden barrels in front of the entrance).

It seems that I can't follow the challenge day by day any more - I have so much to do. I will do my best to catch the rhythm as writing long catch-up posts takes me quite some time as well.
I hope you are all well and enjoying autumn and (perhaps) new beginnings.
