I had had a lovely week up till then, my big sister Lynn had been to stay, the weather was great we had gone to a few car boots and had a generally good time lots of nice chats, walks etc. I had been busy making these bits for the V & H fair. Lots of lovely vintage scraps of fabric and lace and old photos. I love finding odd bits and putting them together to tell a little story.
This is one of my favourites, such devoted sisters.
This one, in a little old frame I painted white reminds me of a photo of my gran, it must have been a favourite pose of photographers in the thirties. I should have just used the photo of my gran but this one was in lovely colour.
Some of E's relatives having a grand day out! I love the grungyness of this one.
I thought it might be nice to print these as cards?
I have not got much work done at this week, having to go to the vet every day and just nursing the poor dog has been a big distraction but I did manage to get some more dolls made up ready to paint and some cushion covers started so lots to do.
Also the day arrived last week when my Christmas present from E, that was started for Christmas 2007, was presented to me at about 11 o'clock at night. It is FAB and made me cry so I MUST show you that. I always cry at the presents E makes for me, not because they are bad I hasten to add but because he puts so much into them, some have little messages of love hidden in them, he is a big softie really!!
