HAPPY AND GLORIOUS,
LONG TO REIGN OVER US,
GOD SAVE OUR QUEEN!
Well, it couldn't be anything else after this weekend, could it?? I have enjoyed all the festivities both national and local..pics to follow in a minute!
Please can I say a huge Thank You to the lovely people who sent me ATCs and other little gifts to celebrate last week. How kind you all are, I really enjoyed getting the post and ripping open the envelopes to see the treasures inside!
A few things are winging their way in return - slightly late...sorry.. but I have been away.
Thank you also to Frankie who made G3 the most wonderful Steampunk hanging IN THE WORLD!! See it here to witness the creation of it - the detail is stunning! You're an amazing artist, Frankie :D
Anyhow, The Desk...
I'm just making a quick shopping bag with the stamp fabric - more to see how it makes up really. It's a bit thinner than most of the fabrics I work with so we'll see how it goes but it's a start into making again. I sold all bar one of my Jubilee bunting at the craft fair last Friday - PHEW!!
The Queen of Burbage arriving in the Carriage Procession!
A regal wave to all her devoted subjects...do you think she'd been practising...LOL!
It was a fab afternoon but we couldn't stay long as we were off to stay with my brother for the weekend as we had tickets to see Jools Holland and his Orchestra. What a brilliant concert, I wish I could play boogie woogie like him!!
While musing about the pictures from the weekend, my DH reminded me about the Golden Jubilee ten years ago...I was working as a Teaching Assistant and was asked to create a crown to be part of the floral display in the Church. I don't know what they were expecting, but this is what they got!
I had forgotten all about these! It was such fun making them......
It is amazing what you can do with card, a plastic ball. beads, gold spray paint and plastic 'jewels' *grin*
Hope you have had a fab week whether you swapped or not. See you on the round next time!
