I've done it again

I haven't posted for a while have I, in my defense it has been rather busy as Les has been away on business and family have been here to. So as you can imagine this little lady was super pleased to see her Daddy on Thursday. Just look at that gappy smile, the tooth fairy had to come again over the weekend!!.

Whilst my Mum and Dad were here my Mum was showing Charlotte how to knit, she picked it up extremely quickly and was really keen. She wants to knit her dolly a scarf, it's such a shame that I'm naff at knitting, I can remember having the same lessons from Mum, but think I was more interested in pieces of paper and glue!!. Somethings never changes.

I haven't had much chance to craft although I did go to the Bromsgrove Cropaganza were the lovely Kirsty Wiseman taught some classes. My favourite was the canvas and this is my take on it, it's slightly different to Kirsty's as I have put a photo on mine.

I did also manage to complete a layout that I had started from a Pencil Lines sketch.

I have been admiring altered art work from Christy Tomlinson. I missed out on the first 'She Art Workshop' but have enrolled on the second one which starts in April, I'm so excited. Sarah at the Bromsgrove crop showed us some of the art work she had created and it was stunning, she really did inspire me to have a go. The thing is that I had itchy fingers and couldn't wait for April, so I watched a couple of Christy's videos to see some of the techniques and came up with this. By golly I have a long way to go but I'm pleased with my first attempt.

Right enough of me rambling on. Thanks for popping by.
