Big catch up

It hs been so long since I blogged, I have almost forgotten how! Well not really but you know what I mean.


I have done quite a lot more than is here but I would have to split it all into 2 or 3 posts so I thought one of my favourite pieces would be best.


First there is a LO I did of the kids ‘When they were young’. The photos were taken when we took them to Kenya on holiday and we came across the pics while clearing out some drawers. I just had to do this



Next I have some photos of Connor with his pop up tent, he loved it and spent ages popping in and out



The image is a bit small to show his expressions but they were so funny.


I also made a star book for Alan, he doesn’t have many photos of Connor and wanted some. Hope he likes this



Lots of pics of him with various family members and on his own.












Then I did a UTEE class with the lovely Jennie and put my pieces on canvases, this is one of 3.


The yesterday I did a Spellbinders workshop where we used a new template for making flowers. We made this first, you can see the fleur1

template as well. It is easy once you get the hang of it and there are some videos on You Tube that I want to check out in case there is more.


Then we cut the same template in felt and this is the result



The one with the green leaf has another, larger leaf which is hidden and is set on a brooch pin. I added a few Stickles to match.


Finally I spent the afternoon playing and made these.



From the left, one made starting from the centre of the template(normally you start form the outside). Makes a tighter flower. The middle one is made with 2 die cuts, the same as the ones on the trinket box. Finally I had a go at cutting 3 and assembling them, I actually like this the best and will make more once I find some suitable paper.


OK this is the end of a long post, hopefully it won’t be so long next time.


Thanks for looking.
