This is the fabric page I sent Wendy for July. Her theme is Victorian. I used TAP (Transfer Artist's Paper) for the first time, and I should have had some more practice. The image is a photo of my grandmother in her going away outfit after her wedding in 1898, so I felt that the bits of image missing went with the age of the photo! The pieces of lace I have stitched down are mostly from the stash I inherited from my mother-in-law, who used to do beautiful sewing. I am lucky enough still to have quite a few pieces of lace left.
Our carpets were cleaned today and have dried reasonable well, despite the drizzly weather. We have moved furniture out and then back and the dog kept getting more agitated all the time. He is very glad to see everything back to normal now.
We had to leave the carpet cleaner to his job while we went to a funeral, it turned out to be a very sad event, although the man who died was nearly 81. I often find when somebody old dies, the event, while sad, becomes a celebration of a long life and a chance to catch up with many friends and family you may not have seen for several years. However, his wife was inconsolable, so it made for a very distressing funeral.
Now I think I shall sit in front of the TV and find a good DVD to watch while I do some hand sewing.
