I've got to give out something special to mark this occasion. But what to give??? I don't have much - most of my charts are now listed on ebay - for the 'Bronny needs to buy a sampler fund' -
However - I will put together a MYSTERY BAG of at least 2 pieces of fabric and 6 skeins of DMC and at least one chart - Leave a comment on this post only to enter. I will draw a winner next SUNDAY night - my time (ie: you have 8 calendar days from this post to enter.....)
I also want to show off a memory bag I made for a workmate. She is devastated following the loss of her father and I had a 'gut feeling' to make a Memory bag for her - especially after seeing on somebody else's blog a similar bag - I had to try making it myself.
I charted the words 'Special Memories' using the old-fashioned method - graph paper and pencil. I'm so pleased how it turned out - adding a rhodes heart. The tokens contain thoughts/themes. The idea is that she selects one token and has a happy thought about her father with that theme. I included such ideas as : present received, present given, food, flower, colour, pet, sibling, favourite christmas meal, favourite item of clothing, most repeated anecdote.
I watched Gone with the Wind the other night - more so a 'chick-flick' as I drooled over the sets and the glassware and the clothing. Vivien Leigh's Scarlett was a tad over the top, especially in comparision with current acting techniques, but as a whole I thoroughly enjoyed the movie
John has payed today at the final for the Youth in Blues project - although not a winner today, is already determined to enter again next year and is as I type, sitting in his room practicing a new song.. Check out his myspace page (I don't run facebook or myspace - have enough trouble keeping up with blogger!.
I would love to show you what I'm working on, but have not taken photos...I might take a few tomorrow morning and try to upload them. I've picked up Bent Creek's Redbird Sampler, I've started a monochromatic picture of a house on aida, I've still got Inspiration and Poppies going (not to mention a few others that are trying so hard not to fall into the UFO pile!)
That's all my warblings for now.....please leave a post if you want to enter my centenary post competition...
