Cloudy Sky Watch



"I think the world really boils down to two types of people - those who see shapes in cloud formations, and those who just see clouds." Danzae Pace

A good quote to go with Sky Watch Friday, some folks only see the sky but if you are "watching" the sky you see so much more. Check out the 100s of photos linked to Sky Watch Friday.


Good News #1: Jill of Bittersweet Soap has launched Calico Petals a shopfront to share all the lovely vintage patterns she has found. The site is full of all kinds of creative patterns and kits for traditional handkerchief pouches, strawberry sachets, unique designs and ephemera collections.

Something for everyone and when searching for a special gift for someone special, lots of options to consider at Bittersweet.



Good News # 2 Shelagh G of All About Paper is launching a new kit club themed on colours, to celebrate she is hosting a draw for a lucky person to win the premier kit linked here.

A cafe canvas, coming soon at a class in local LSS maybe near you.

I rarely see shapes, but I definitely see more than clouds! Nice Sky Watch!

True words! And a lovely sky. The harbor looks very peaceful.

Julie said...

I agree with Louise. I do not try to see human shapes. Why bother when there is so much up there that is already engrossing. These types of clouds are like some one has skidded a cloud pebble across the sky and we end up with a scattering of very light regular shaped clouds. Quite lovely.

Oh this is a beaut - wish it were a little larger, though! But from what I CAN see it's a keeper! ;)
Cheers, Klaus

A beautiful picture. I like the pearly gray with just a hint of pink at the back. Many look but they don't see.

Beautiful sky and lovely reflections. I also like your blog and the way you think.
It is really true that we only start appreciating every separate day when we truly realize that we are mortal.
