On Sunday we went for a small walk – ie, with-in the city, at Louden Park, not too far away! It still took the same amount of time to walk, but the walk is tamer than some of the other locations that we walk at. It was Sunday you see – football day. My husband thought the small walk might be faster. He forgot about Sophie and her nose! She goes into every culvert, hole and under fences following her nose! LOL!
It was a grey day, mostly cloudy, some breaks but no real sun. Quite pleasant for walking and the rain held off until we were almost back at the car!
I found lots of colour to photograph. The grey skies and water seemed to make all of the other colours jump and shine.
It was the birds that made the day! They seemed to be moving leisurely, or, in the case of the Heron, not moving at all. Just posing so that I could take my pictures!
I could not believe the Grey Heron. It just sat on the branch over the water as we walked up and around. I took lots of pictures, afraid that it would suddenly move and leave. If so – I wanted to take the pictures! It did not leave while we were watching, but when we returned back along the trail it was gone. I have never been so close before! It was wonderful.
The response to the Painted Princess has been very interesting. I have certainly learned a lot from it. I like cables plain, or maybe that is just what I am used to. It was an informative exercise. I learned a lot about how the dyes and the yarn worked together and what colours went well.
Because this was about fact-finding – the finished product was much “busier” than a project intended for wearing. But it did its job, allowed me to see the possibilities and make a few decisions about future actions with this project!
