Solum 16 is one of my floor photographs taken a few months ago. My favourite version is in metal print. Although it appears to be a black and white, this is a actually a colour photograph.

Lines, letters, colour and movement, the one below almost looking like a sketch.
So here are some of the close ups I took at the Te Henui Stream. The one at the top here I love the most for its vivid light reflections. Below three of the other close up shots:
I really love the chocolaty look of this shot (above), and what appears to be a collision of currents.
What I like about this one is the “plasticky” look and the pastel colours, being able to see the bottom underneath the water surface, and the little splatters on the side, most likely created by some ducks nearby.
This one was taken near the top of the walkway, standing on a small bridge. Love the still water here and the reflection of the blue sky and a tree overhanging the stream, and some leaves floating on the water.
…and my favourite mid shots, one up here, taken further onto our way, extending our walk into Pukekura Park where I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the fountain there (I’ve taken many already in the past but usually around Christmas time when the lights are on in the park). I love the way the water sprays in the wind, and the unusual view onto the fountain through the trees.
Then there’s the one here, where the Te Henui Stream flows from Mount Taranaki down to the ocean, underneath the bridge at Huatoki Plaza in New Plymouth. Loving the reflection of the Good Home Bar & Restaurant sign in the water, the way the colours appear, and the contrast between light and dark.
Yes more crochet! If I carry on like this I may need to create another blog to support my “other interests” as they are now included in a page on this one!
I made this baby blanket for my daughter Starlet who is expecting a baby, due in April ♡, my very first grandchild to be!
After making my crochet shoulder bags, I really got into the “crochet mode”, and not really being the “knitting nana type”(!!!) ~ besides, this little one already has a nana and great grandmother knitting! ~ I still wanted to do something special for this newcomer in the big wide world, and ~ having had six babies of my own, I know how fast babies grow out of their tiny little baby clothes!
Hence, the blanket! This will be multipurpose of course, and will fit into a bassinet (folded) and a cot, and can serve as a colourful play mat or or even a wall hanging just as a decoration in the nursery, or to pin little messages, pictures, nappy pins, or other decorations onto!
No doubt this blanket will be made to good use, and in any case, I have really enjoyed crocheting every stitch of it! ♡
My new, sassy crochet shoulder bags, now available at the Mermaid Gallery in Breakwater Bay, New Plymouth!
I love the feel, the colours, and the different textures of these new bags, made with LOVE, not too big, not too small, and just the right size for holding your wallet and personal items, and, as someone mentioned, the PERFECT size to hold a box of Oracle Cards! ♡
The amazing thing, may I add, was the meditative state it got me into, while creating them! Clearing my head (as well as work and living areas!) giving me so much inspiration for future projects, and generally, a feeling of wellbeing. I love my life! ♡
Some of these bags were sold just recently at Mermaid Gallery in New Plymouth, Taranaki, thank you! They made great Christmas gifts! Working on creating some new ones with a new look, new colours, and hopefully ready within the next few weeks!
Beautiful accessories to complete your individual look, hand made with love ♡
