....not much crafting has been going on in the Smifferoo household just lately!!
We have been on our Hols....
Nothing like a little bit of Nature to recharge the batteries...
Barney enjoying is trip
(showing off his new (SHORT!!) Haircut!
wildlife visiting our lodge each day!
...although Barney Boy was not too impressed with his variety of new friends!!
...But the best bit of all was having all my three handsome boys together...
My eldest hasn't holidayed with us for a couple of years
...so it made it Special!!
(When did that happen- LOL!!)
We also got to catch up with the latest addition to our family
My lovely niece's new baby...
and my other gorgeous niece got engaged!..
We've also had some fun family BBQ's and friends parties.
....making the most of the lovely sunny weather
...lots of new doggy walks!!
...and last week for my birthday treat...
I was spoilt rotten!...
I was spoilt rotten!...
My wonderful Hubby took me up to London
..for a little spot of Birthday shopping...
(Lookie at all the olympic medals in the tree!)
Then to see the musical 'Blood Brothers' at the Phoenix theatre...
So it's been a Busy ...but fantastic couple of weeks
...still trying to catch up with all the washing ...ironing etc...
..but have had a lovely day playing with paint, paper and fabric today...
I finished up my Challenge # 38 DT project for
Let's Get Shabby
(but you will have to wait until the 25th to see that ;) )
You have still got a few days to enter the current #37 challenge here.
I've also sorted out my fabric stash to make some more prayer flags...Thank you to all those that messaged me from my last post...I'm looking forward to our swaps!!
Talking of swaps...I've still got some fabby pics to show of some recent trades...but will save them for another post.
..and last but not least...Here is the tag I made for
....where this weeks theme is Theatre and Cinema
I was inspired by my last weeks visit to the Phoenix Theatre, London...
....opened in the 1930's with it's gorgeous golden wall engravings and plush red seats and carpets
I hit the fabric again, and found some fancy gold toile...The image of the lady reminded me of an actress reciting her lines in a play...I also printed onto fabric some free images of theatre posters...all sewn together with laces, buttons, crochet seam binding, charms and wings...which is my slightly 'Thinking outside of the box version of 'Waiting in the wings' (Idiom Definition-If someone is waiting in the wings, or in the wings, they are in the background, but nearby, ready to act on short notice.)
Anyway...here is the result.....
Well...that was a bit of a lonnnng post, if you are still here and haven't nodded off...
|My....Waiting in the Wings!!!|
Thanks for peeking!
Off to catch up with what I've missed in Blogland now....
