.....Well it's been a while...it's about time I dusted some of the cobwebs from my little unloved Blog....life has been a little busy with its Ups and Downs, Twists and Turns...But...I've been missing all the Love, Challenges and Inspiration in Blogland...
So here are a few things I've been up too since I last posted in October....
In November ...My Aaron...Son #1... flew the nest and has gone to live and work in Australia (for 2 years!!) Miss him sooooo much....but he is having an amazing time making new friends and experiences (which makes it a little easier for me!!)
So...I knitted him a little pal 'Ozzy' to take with him on his travels....
...and here is Ozzy enjoying Melbourne living!!
...a little too much if you ask me LOL!!!
Hopefully... we will get to to visit Aaron (..and Ozzy!!!) soon?!
I'm also joining in with Kat Sloma's Liberate Your Art event again this year. It's fifth year!...(Liberate your Art 2015 postcard swap). The challenge is to take photographs of your art and have it printed as a postcard . You need to send 5 cards and you will receive 5 in return from other participants as well as one from Kat..
These are the cards I sent made with some of last years creations..
...can't wait to see what I get in return :)
...and at the end of last year.... I was so honoured and happy to be invited by the lovely Linda ( A swap for all Seasons) to join a year long adventure along with a small group of talented crafters to create and trade "Mini Fabric Samplers" each month from which a personal garland/banner may be made by many of the artists at the end of the year.
...and my first partner to send to was the lovely Linda herself... Now Linda is a talented artist, but she also works as a nurse ...and she adores babies....so My first sampler.. just had to include a vintage baby photo (printed on fabric)..vintage lace, buttons, ribbons, fabrics..
and I've embroidered a sweet pair of mary-jane shoes!
all wrapped up and sent to Linda in the USA
and this is the fabulous mini quiltie I received from
Elizabeth (Tales from the Pond)
|created by Elizabeth|
Isn't it adorable..I just love the sweet image, fabric , doily etc and the little red heart button! Thank you again Elizabeth!
... for Februarys swap I get a sampler from Linda...and I have already seen a sneaky peek on her blog..and it's a beauty!! :)
...and I have Elizabeth to send to this time... So here is a sneaky peek of mine all wrapped up!...It's already on its way to Texas!
and my latest creative efforts...were some banksy inspired Valentine card/tag for my sweetheart!!! ;)
I'm working on a little something else at the moment for a new exciting upcoming challenge...but I will keep that a mystery for now....So watch this space....
Now..I best grab a cuppa...and see what has been going on in Blogland!! Sorry if I haven't visited for a while...will try and catch up with you all soon x
Thanks for Peeking!
