Things around my home.

Oct 30th

A Bit if Boasting.......

I created this version of my family tree when I took a City and Guilds Embroidery Course a while ago. The design work took forever and was supposed to be done before I began work on the actual piece but........ well you can guess!

This was another piece for the same course, based on peacock feathers. I used different metalic organza layered on top of each other and then frayed them. The base is dyed silk.

A Bit of nature.............

I opened my curtains this morning and there were birds from end to end of this lamp. Of course by the time I grabbed the camera most of them had left. But this was the only one they chose from a whole row down the street. It made me wonder why. Was the view better from there? Were they interested in who was opening the curtains (I don't suppose so for a minute!), or was the light on for longer than all the rest and therefore still warm?

Remember the trip to the arboetum? Well, maybe I could have saved some cash! Or maybe because we went there, my eyes have been opened to some of the beauty around me? All these were very local, the first just outside my bedroom window.

Some of the trees on my walk into town. Ok they aren't maples, not bright red, but so varied in colour.

A Bit from My Best Frieend's House..........

I am cheating now, really! She isn't mine, but I wouldn't mind if she was! This is Miss Millie, my friend's little cat. She rules ok? There will be more tales from My Best Friend's house! I have told her she should charge entry to the managerie!

A Bit of a Scare for Some..........

Speaking of animals...well sort of, this is not really the cuddly sort! Look what tried to walk into my house, through the back door, today!

Just to give you some idea of its size, my sliper has slipped into this frame.

A Bit of the Future?.........

Steve and I have always wanted to live on a narrow boat, we already live near a canal. Could this be our future returement home?

All the people I love are getting something I have made for Christmas, wiht the eception of those who have specifically asked for something different. Most gifts are now complete. I am not sure why I am this organised this year. Maybe it has to do with the two fibrey events I have attended in 2009? Anyway, I am modelling a sock that is going to a member of the family, with its twin, of course.
