A Quiet Time and A finished Piece !
Well we got thro' the two festive days quietly, only OH and myself plus my Aunt, the visit to Mum on Christmas day wasn't good as it was one of her really bad days. I had lots of lovely gifts, good food and a really exciting moment when I pulled a cracker and out popped a little pack of mini dominoes all ready for altering(how sad is that). Roy and I have treated ourselves to a Nintendo DS, my idea for brain training for Roy??, and also for his beloved Suduko, I just happened to buy a scrabble game to use with it and I'm hooked as it's so long since I had anyone to play scrabble with and I find that there are 'mini people' in the game that play with you - it's wonderful!Perhaps by the time Roy has used up all his saved suduko from the papers and the book I bought him , I will be ready to share with him.
At last I have finished my 'Church ' piece that was inspired by the work of Beryl Taylor and that was started in the summer,The picture was transferred to fabric using Bondaweb then attached to a layer of green then gold fabric and creased calico, it was then embellished with small pieces of stamped card, dictionary papers and watersoluble paper and finished off with beads and sequins, a metal heart and a cross. The surrounding gold fabric was covered in seed stitch.It is my first try at this sort of work and I'm pleased with it , I just have to decide on its framing.
