Thank you for stopping by and all your lovely comments this week - welcome to some new followers too - if you click on follower icons you will get to meet them too... There is going to be a big blog event in January - see the link on the RHS if you want to join in over at 2 Bags Full to 'Grow your Blog'.
I am learning to knit and this is my first result! little (red) melange hearts knitted and then wet felted afterwards. The pattern came from this book - lots of inspirational pictures - a treat to myself . I used tutorials on Youtube to help me when I got stuck with stitch know how.
There is now an icon on my blog linking to my Folksy shop. There is a small stock as I would like to make the paintings on request so I can offer something to suit individual price range and personal taste. The pricing is reflected in time spent on detail rather than size of silk. I will be making small silk painted lavender bags in the future too. This isn't intended as a business but a way of funding my silk painting materials and to pay towards some art classes next year. Thank you to everyone for your honest, helpful and constructive comments/advice on this subject a few months ago. I have hesitated for ages about whether to give this a try but think nothing ventured nothing gained!
Help with my Family Album Please
I share the family photograph album with my two brothers, it has become my turn to be the keeper but as you can see, the pictures are falling out, not labelled and not in a very nice holder!
|Treasure: me with my father|
Have you seen a tutorial on another blog that is for sharing maybe? I like the idea of using aged music sheets, lace and decoupage to make this album but have no idea how!
Also, I have a 3 minute dvd remake of an original black and white family wedding film from 1939 but have been unable to upload it onto my blog or anywhere online as I think it has been 'locked' although it will play on my pc. If you know how to get round this problem I would appreciate your advice.
Looking forward to catching up on your blogs this weekend. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
