A Little Game

I am getting a bit bored with the holidays now.
I read everything in google reader the other night and discovered this little game on a lot of blogs.
Open your pictures file and choose the 6th folder. Open it and find the 6th picture and upload it to the blog.
Now, being the worrying type I wonder if its 6th from the top and therefore the most recent, or 6th from the bottom.
So I am doing both.

This is the 6th from the top. And it was the 6th picture till I named it '6' and then it went to the top.
You can't win.

Its a cobbled road along my walking route. I took the picture when I was working on these bags and it struck me how they were uneven rectangles all fitted together in much the same way as I had done with my velvet.


Now here is the reverse..ie 6th folder 6th picture from the bottom.

Here goes.
Oops slight problem..only one picture in the folder..anyway here it is



A few years ago, my son, who is a big fan of 'The Wicker Man' , was messing about with his friends in the garden.

We are great hoarders of wood as well as everything else, and all this was in the pile waiting to be chopped up for the stove. Two bits of fence panel, two empty hanging baskets, two old christmas tree trunks were transformed by them into the Wicker Man of Brinscall.

This picture was taken a couple of months later when we dragged it a mile and a half to our friends' bonfire on 5th November, prior to its spectacular burning.

You may be relieved to know we did not strip naked and dance round the fire.

It's funny how anything can inspire us to be creative, like the patterns in the bricks.
Thank you Jackie for the link.xx

G'day Jackie,
You said...'You may be relieved to know we did not strip naked and dance round the fire'... I thought that might of been fun [but there again if it were me, that would of been fun 20 years ago - today would not be a good sight so would be a definate NO GO ... lol]
I'm going to play this little photo game too looks like lots of fun & I think I will do the top & bottom way as well. I'm doing a lot of blog crusing as I always think this week between Christmas & New Year is my 'vegging out' time so I look for inspiration & take notes ... your blog is always so inspirational to me ... thank you so much for sharing - I'm hoping to be able to do a 'class' via the internet with you in the 2009 ... Happy New Year ... OOroo ... Bethel

The photo of the pathway is wonderful! (At first I thought it was a picture of old gravestones, maybe it's time I get a new pair of specks?)

you've just reminded me how much I miss bonfire night (or cracker night) - being good members of the British Commonwealth we also celebrated the 5th November! As a child I remember we'd collect heaps of wood and nail catherine wheels to fences, this was the inner suburbs of Sydney so it's amazing we didn't set fire to the whole street.
The end of the bonfire era came in the 1970's when fireworks were made illegal for private use, although we still hear them being set off on Saturday nights around our way.

Love your pathway - very patchworky - and your son's Wicker Man, a shame to burn him. Sorry you chickened out on dancing naked round the bonfire! I can't play your photo game as I haven't yet figured out how to get photo's onto my laptop yet!! At least Santa bought me the digital camera, so I am halfway there. Happy New Year, Heather.

Kitty said...

Great pictures - I love them both.

Hope you had a lovely Christmas, and wish you and your loved ones a very happy new year.
