Holiday blog

Hi it's so great to have a bit of sun and relaxation. I have done a few pages in my journal for a group I joined called fabulous and free art journaling-irreversibly moi. I took a few meagre supplies with me so I am having to dig deep.  The first one was movies, mine is the green mile, second was your name and the third one was to do a page without using a brush.

Just a little post of a page I have done for a challenge journaling group I have joined. I'm way behind though as they are now on challenge six. I drew these feet (my feet) a few years ago on holiday but the original was a bit small so I have enlarged them. Hopefully will be reacting the picture this week. See you soon x

New from old

I've been busy making a dress for Eva from one of my old summer tops. I just cut off the top, turned over the edge and then about 6/7 rows of shearing elastic. Cut the straps from the discard top and made cross over straps (stops them from slipping down) and added the rest to the waist to make a bow on the front. She loves it, another dancing dress and it fitted perfectly, just need the sun to shine so she can wear it.

Journal cover

Hi, just thought I'd share a journal cover I made the other day at Katherine's class. It started off as plain cream cotton which was sprayed with Tumble dye sprays by SEI. Then a bit of stamping and colouring. It was machined together with a back and some wadding and I did a running stitch on the outer edges to join the inner flaps to the main cover. I stitched along some stamped lines with normal cotton. Finally stuck down JOURNAL, bird and butterfly and covered with glossy accents.

Happy birthday 90

I spent a couple of hours yesterday making this luxurious card for a very special lady. Irene is my daughter in law Amanda's mum and she is 90 years old today. She will be surrounded by friends and relations from near and far at her celebration afternoon tea at Wistow Garden Centre. Happy birthday Irene x
