About Me

My photo
I am a gypsy! having been born and raised in Yorkshire, England I left at 21 and lived in many places including Germany for 5 years. This resulted in my always striving to move on to the next level of my life. The one thing that remained constant is my need to create. Eventually I went back to university and graduated with a first class honours degree in fashion and textiles majoring in knitwear design. I am now back in Yorkshire and a professional in-house hand knit designer for a well known UK pattern and yarn company.

THE SECRET TREE ELF

This is one of those quick posts I have been meaning to do for some time. My daughter and I quite often take a walk through some wooded grounds on the way to the park. It wasn't until this year when the leaves were still yet to come in full force that we spotted him...
....if you look closely you can see him hiding in the foetal position with a sticking out big toe, bent knee and round bottom, his head appears on the other side of the branch which he is clinging onto. I took this photograph with the dramatic pre-spring sky and have only just gotten around to transfering the file to my laptop.
Our tree elf appears as if by magic and then when you walk underneath him he completely disappears.
