Music and Roses

Show and Tell Monday

Almost Christmas, 33 days to go, a time of magic and love, a time to let those near to you or far away know that you care. Decorations on the tree, festive houses, cards through the letter box Postie working overtime, scents of spices and fruits in the air from homemade mincemeat to be turned into pies sprinkled with sugar, delectable aromas fill the house, crackling of the log fires, roasted chestnuts, all go to make a Perfect Christmas.

Music, Roses with a hint of Champagne

My offering for Show and Tell Monday a quilted waistcoat in pink, brown and cream, with a sprinkling of lace butterflies and vintage lace trim

A picture of my stall at the Bramley fair on 6th November, not that happy with the display as feel it needs more height at the back, should have remembered to pack my shelves.

True Friends

True Friends

Sometimes in our lives we have to overcome an obstacle and that time you have friends to turn to and that is the time when true friendships come to the fore, to know you are not alone. I have several e-friends, namely the Pink Ladies from Make Mine Pink, Kim and Jill who have been there for me this week after the loss of our fur baby Barney in the early hours of Sunday morning. Thank you girl's.

Barney 1995 to 2010
In tribute to Barney a poem by a wonderful Author, Nancy Ellen Crossland, check out her book at Amazon 'Within these branches' a beautiful read


Faithful friend
You always sense
My moods, my sadness
When I'm feeling tense

Like my shadow
You're always there
Though you cannot speak
I know you care

A gentle nudge with your nose
A paw on my lap
Tug on my clothes

You speak a language
With your compassionate eyes
Sense my lows
Rejoice in my highs

Faithful friend
With a wag of your tail
Your devotion to me
Will never fail

A reward now and then
A scratch under the chin
A walk in the park
Faithful friend
How fortunate
I've been

Nancy Ellen Crossland

and last but not least:

A big thank you to Kim

Kim is a kind and sweet lady I have met on line through a UK based forum, we have become good friends, knowing each of us if there for the other in times of happiness and sadness.
On Saturday I received a beautiful handmade card and gift through the post, the gift a card kit to give me something to do and it is in my favourite colour of pink. Think this kit will be made into a framed picture for my Sewing room, to always remind me of a dear friendship.

Thank you Kim, you are a true friend. x

A basketful of scented fruit

Well I have been on about them all week and finally finished, the basket is covered and lined in black with pink and black ribbon wound around the handle. The glitter roses are a bit dark but will be replaced eventually with pale pink once I get to my supplier.

Show and Tell Monday

Alice in Wonderland

Last week watched the brilliant Tim Burton film, Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp, what more can I say.

So could not resist this fabric depicting the Alice characters made into a bag

Just had to cover a headband

and what better way to finish the ensemble with a necklace
