SWIFTLY FLY THE YEARS.
ONE SEASON FOLLOWING ANOTHER,
LADEN WITH HAPPINESS AND TEARS.
(Fiddler on the Roof - one of my favourite musicals EVER! And probably where I get my love of all music in a Minor key from - either that or it's because I'm a mechancolic Celt sometimes...)
We had the most wonderful 30th Anniversary prezzy from dear friends of ours in band..
A bud vase made by a very talented friend of theirs! Not only does it feature my favourite colour, it has our names and wedding date impressed into it. And look at the hearts....and the flowers...and...
Look at the gorgeous card and tag she made to go with it. We both melted when we saw this. So please, if you would care to, check out
http://www.facebook.com/greenwalnut and marvel at the wonderful creations of Clare. And persuade her to join us on WOYWW, I think she'd fit in really well!!
And THANK YOU to Helen and Simon for giving us the prezzy in the first place - we LOVE IT!!
Anyhow, what is on my workdesk? Well, as you asked so nicely, I'll show you! I'm just inserting a floral lining into a Scotty Tote, which is an order for someone. I haven't done this combo before and rather like it!!
Here's the makings of something for the WOYWW crop day... :)And I thought I'd make something from the brilliantly named (by Wipso!!) 'What the Duck?' fabric with a funky spotty contrast. Not sure what yet....
Ah, that makes me laugh each time I say it...sorry...infantile sense of humour again....*grin*
The jewellery making is progressing too..
A commission for someone...
You can't really go wrong with red, black and silver, can you?
And finally, if you are easily offended, proceed no further.........I'm going to blame this one on my dear husband. He'd gone to meet a mate that he hadn't seen for a while - and as they're both steam train-spotting anoraks, they met at the Watercress Line in Hampshire. And what does my husband spot and take a piccy of? Because...and I quote...'It might do for your blog...'
!!!!! Trust HIM to lower the tone..... :D It is a genuine, vintage, enamel advertising sign at one of the stations!! LOL
Spratts it is from now on then...oh, and for the cats as well....... ;-)
