Here's July, not all the blocks are filled in  as some days are pretty boring just mundane stuff. The image is from a Stampotique stamp, as is the little cat in the bottom corner, I love there stamps. The stencils are all from The Crafters Workshop. Now I really need to make a start on August!

Art Calendar Challenge

It's a long time since I took part in Kate's Art Calendar challenge but in April I got my mojo back and have taken part since then.

I did this page absolutely ages ago so I can't remember what I used apart from the images which are from  Teesha Moore PDFs. This is another one for my craft room wall.

A woman is like a tea-bag

I have not blogged for over two years at least and I have even forgotten how to blog so if things are a bit haywire please excuse me. The above is a page I started on the 1st May 2017 and decided to add to it and finish it the other evening. The arrows are from one of Dyan's stamp sets, the others forming the background are from Seth Apter stamp sets which I love. The image is one of Tim Holtz "Paper Dolls, the quote I found in a news paper. I have machine stitched all the way round the page. I was going to fix this into one of my journals but I like it so much that it is now on the wall in my craft room.

I really ought to learn how to crop these photos then you don't see all the other stuff behind.
It's ages since I did an Art Journal page but when i saw this image in my Nespresso magazine I knew I wanted to use it for a page and this is the result, I really enjoyed myself with this page.

I haven't blogged since last March and done very little in the way of "ART" although I have actually kept up with my Art Calendar, some months not all the journal squares were filled in but nevertheless I did it. So here is November just waiting to be filled in, the photo isn't all that good as the light outside at this time of year is not good especially in the north of England.

It has been my birthday this weekend, I have reached another decade but I am not going to say which one, however it was significant enough for a group of four friends to make me the most fantastic present, all hand made.Ann Briggs, Christine Jones, Sandra Hall and Lynne Hunter (the Craft Den) all got together towards the end of last year to make me this beautiful "throw" for my bed, the quilting work that has gone into it is unbelievable. I was lost for words and quite emotional that these friends would spend so much time and work making what can only be described as an heirloom for me, we have a King size bed so you can just imagine the size of this beautiful piece of work, I just love, love, love everything about it. We all met up today at Sandra's house (Sandy Poppins) as we were going for a celebration lunch this is when they presented me with this stunning surprise. My photo does not do it justice in real life it is amazing and is actually a "Friendship Quilt" not a throw as I said earlier.
