ALL YOU CAN DO IS STEP BACK IN TIME...
A short and sweet post today linking up with all the deskers for WOYWW at Stamping Ground - apologies straight away, I'm gadding for the next few days so comments may happen at the weekend!
I was a brave crafter this week and had to put on my Big Girl Pants......curtains had to be made.... they were for the big square bay window in my kitchen and believe you me, if I could have bought them from Dunelm, I'd have done so in a flash!!
I found some fabric on Amothreads (I needed 11.4m and there was 13 of this loose weave ivory, meant to be huh?!) After making the basic curtain I then had the scary part of inserting the eyelets and cutting holes in what I'd just made......shiver.....
They turned out ok, just don't look too closely at the sewing!
I saw so many folks starting to make their Christmas cards last week that I thought I'd better get a shift on:
Lovely papers aren't they? I couldn't resist them when I was pootling around ebay!
And now that the crochet snowflakes and angels have finished, I thought I'd start a blanket to use up stash yarn:
Pretty in pink!
And that's it for me - I thought you might like to see G's ongoing project. Ages ago, someone donated boxes of old glass negative plates to his photography society and they'd got dumped in a cupboard and forgotten about. G thought this was a shame and has undertaken the mammoth task of digitising them.First he takes a pic using a proper Heath Robinson set-up then uploads them to Photoshop:
Then he has to turn it to a positive image and tidy them up a bit:
It's that magic moment when an image is seen properly for the first time in goodness knows how many years!
And this is the result:
Isn't it fantastic? Obviously a set up picture but wonderful nevertheless. There are other pics from this well to do family but there's no info on names or dates. Hopefully when G has finished and this is given to the County Archives it can go onto the public domain and someone may be able to help.
It's a real labour of love but G is really enjoying himself!
Hope you have a wonderful week - have fun, create some noise and do something you enjoy!
