FARE THEE WELL MY DARLING GIRL
A few days have elapsed since Shaz Silverwolf passed away and I still can't believe she's gone. I wrote about our friendship in my previous post so am not going to repeat myself here. Besides I can hear her telling us to get a grip and keep crafting, busy hands help when your heart is full. Julia wrote a beautiful piece which sums up our Shaz brilliantly. Doug has been very touched by all the messages from deskers around the world, it shows how much she was loved and appreciated.
So here, in a single pic, is a homage to our friend - Queen of Enabling:Yup, a Tim Holtz Deckle edge trimmer - I think Shaz and Julia nearly fainted when I bought this!! It does make all the difference when I'm slapping a card together. I shall think of Shaz each time I use it, that's a proper crafter's tribute!
I should heed my own advice though as my heart really hasn't been into anything much this past week.I got out the pattern and fabric but it's still there, I wasn't in the mood.
I had a quick laying out of the crochet Granny squares to see what was what. I shall do a few more with the different colours in the rounds, there's enough plain ones. Another ten or so will make a lap blanket for someone.
And after three weeks of sorting, I finished off the final photo album on Monday - it's been a long process but I have really enjoyed it, culling about 50% of the pics. A lot of the pics of places have gone so most of what remains are images of family and friends because, at the end of the day, that's what is most important.
