Life's Little Moments

I just loved this sentiment on my new Cricut cartridge Graphically Speaking. It just fitted in with these three photographs taken while sailing on holiday this year. I did enjoy it - honestly!

A Good Scrapbooking Day!

I was getting withdrawal symptoms for some 12 x 12 scrapbooking, so I chose a few photos from the holiday and just scrapped them straight on to the page. I've never done two layouts so quickly, but I'm really pleased with them.

What a Mess!!

I get so carried away when working, I end up with hardly any room on the table. This was the result after finishing an 8 x 8 srapbook page for Karen in our Shetland circle challenge. Hmmmmm ..........

Felting onto Silk

I recently attended a workshop where we felted onto silk and made these wonderful fingerless gloves. I felted the remaining silk and wool when I got home and should have enough to make a small matching bag.

SWRI Craft Show

I had 11 entries in the bi-annual SWRI Craft Show. I was very pleased to get a first in: a watercolour painting, a pencil drawing, a child's birthday card, any other crafts - 1955 scrapbook and any other crafts - bonded fibres picture. I also got a second for my scrapbook layout and my recycled article and knitted scarf. A felted necklace also gained a highly commenced. I was absolutely delighted to win the Trophy for the most points in the Arts and Crafts Section (for a second time!). It is great fun entering the show, but also a wonderful opportunity to see a huge range of wonderful crafts undertaken here in the islands. The baking is out of this world, as are the range of preserves entered and this year the produce stand was just heaving with the most wonderful range of vegetables and fruit (even grapes).
