Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Back to modelling after the A-Z Challenge

Well the A-Z challenge is finished so it's back to the modelling on the blog again, thank goodness do I hear you say!
Over the weekend I painted the tiller arm for the Narra Boat, it took a while as it was all waiting between  the colours drying, still didn't turn out bad did it.
Same colours as on the boat,looks a bit different being closer together though.
Then it was on to the inside again, the curtains that Velda had made for me earlier, that brought a lump to my throat, 
Even got patterns on them!, the brass fittings are from the inside of electric block connectors and then wooden rails, these were then super glued on the walls inside.

Different colours along the boat.

That's one side finished, just the other side to finish and then it's the glazing (plastic) to do.
And there was I changing my curtains in the house for vertical blinds because I didn't want to be changing curtains every few month's as Velda used to do. perhaps it's my feminine side coming out hey!.

When Pepe and I were in the park on Saturday we were talking to Colin (Well I was) a chap came along and I wondered why Pepe wasn't barking like crazy as he usually does at other black dogs when I realised it wasn't a dog but a Lamb!.

Hope he had his pooper scooper with him.

Then it was home to a nap.
Relaxation.

If your dog is barking at the back door and your wife is yelling at the front door, who do you let in first ?
The dog, of course... at least he'll shut up after you let him in.


Here's a novel idea if you are into photography

As you may know by now my next project is the Model Slipway "Our Lass" and whilst researching that came across this video of the real boat going along at a fair lick.


 Another of her in Harbour, the lights look good and I might be adding those, but the weathering?? don't know if I could manage that?, doing it realistic or the thought in my tidy mind!

That's it for now, must go and finish those curtains, not much ironing on them though is there.

  1. when you had your blinds fitted you should have asked him to fit out your narra boat in return for freee advertising!

  2. It would have taken him longer to fot out the boat, they were in and out of the house in 10minutes
