Vintage Motors and Hay Bales

No crafting for me this weekend as my craft room is still out of bounds. It has been replastered underneath the new window so I must wait until it's gone off before I get in there again. I've had workmen here for three days, it looks like a bomb has gone off and the cat is traumatised, but it's looking SO much better. They will finish the job on Monday and I will have a proper clear up then.

Since the weather has been glorious I have been out taking pics today. I visited a classic car garage in the village and asked the owner if it was ok to snap some of his lovely old vehicles. He was more than happy to oblige and I even sat in them and sniffed the lovely upholstery which took me right back to my childhood.

My Dad had one just like this

So nostalgic

I sat in this and imagined I was Miss Marple!

Whilst out and about today I spotted some hay bales in a field and thought it would be a great photo opportunity, so I returned there this evening and got these shots.

Not my greatest photography moments so far as I forgot to use my light compensation thingy! Hardly surprising as I was dicing with death taking these pics. I was standing in a mass of stinging nettles and brambles in flip-flops on the bend of a very busy road which was about 5 inches behind me.
Do not try this at home!

So that's all from me for now, a pile of ironing and 'Strictly' await.
TFL, have a great weekend and enjoy the rays.
