I've seen some lovely work using the sunburst technique and knew I had to have a go and try to interpret my own version.  I've been working on it all week, due to all the hand stitching on each piece of patterned paper, I know I'm mad for doing it by hand but I just don't trust myself with my sewing machine, I need more practice I guess.  I did find it quite restricting on what embellishments to put on the layout as I didn't want anything that was going to distract away from the sunburst so decided on using some words which best represent Charlotte.  This photo of her was taken exactly a year ago, you can just make out that she was wearing a summer dress and a little cardi, hmm couldn't do that today.  I shan't complain about the weather we all know how terrible it has been over the past 2 weeks, here in the UK.

Whatever you are up to this Bank holiday, enjoy.

As usual thanks for stopping by, it is appreciated.
