For today’s show and tell I am sharing a cross-stitch picture I completed in 1990 – what a long time ago! I used to have the time, patience and eye-sight for cross-stitch. Now it appears I have none of these!!!
Originally I hung this in the kitchen of our first home. When we moved, it was donated to my Mum’s kitchen, and now it is on the wall in our holiday cottage.
When I chose it (I think I bought the kit in a shop in France), I certainly never imagined I would have a cat, but loved the window in the centre of the image, with the cat looking out.
I also chose it to match my collection of blue/white china which was on display on our pine dresser. The dresser has since been donated to a relative, and the china is currently packed in boxes in the attic, but I look forward to displaying it again at some stage.
On to my other news, which I hinted at in my last post, I am now getting the chance to create digital pages for Katie Hadfield, a wonderful UK digi-designer.
Here is my first layout with her new kits – Autumn Harvest Papers, Harvest Hayride Doodles and Wet Paint Papers. They should be up soon in her store, and I will add the links when they are available.
The quote was a new one for me, but I think sums up Autumn perfectly:
“Winter is an etching,
spring a watercolor,
summer an oil painting and
autumn a mosaic of them all.”
The weather has been wet and windy this week, so no new photos of the kids to share (for a change!).
So that is your lot for today.
