It's been forever.......


It seems like forever since we've chatted and where has the time flown to ???
Thought I would share a pic of me, age 6, that was front page of The Newcastle Morning Herald, 1976.
My darling father came home with that paper declaring that 'he was sure he knew that girl in the picture'.
Gotta luv him.xxx
Checkout my wicked cool Easter Bonnet with my handmade carnations made from tissues. A wonderful idea shown to me by my grandmother who has since passed.I would spend hours colouring tissues with textas and suspend them over water using sticks,watching the colours bleed and mingle.
It's been forever since Ive created anything worth sharing, so this offering is a mystery muse gift I made for a great gal I so admire,Elaine.
Gotta love those dunny roll holders from 7 gypsies ( thanks Crozza )
So yes been doing a little dabbling here and there but nothing finished as yet.SHOCK, HORROR that I'm actually SEWING ( thanks Jane ) but will share my exploits another time.I think miss muse has arrived home,phew, I was beginning to worry......

aren't you just the cutest little girl, would adopt you but I think that Mark might have something to say ROFLOL. Glad the muse is back, must be the cold wet weather getting to them.

You've gotta wear your easter bonnet to the next SAJ's and I'm sure we need a demo on tissue carnations! lol Isn't it wonderful what one generation passes onto the next...so who did YOU pass this technique onto????

Welcome back Miss Prawn...we've missed you (love the canvas...lucky Elaine!).
