At last I’ve finished this little fella. It’s taken longer than usual because of the fiddly bits on it’s feet and legs. Really love the iridescent tiles I used on the neck and the stained glass on it’s back.
Isn’t it great to receive an envelope in the post and it doesn’t contain a bill. This envelope contained an invite to a Route 66/Welcome Home/Happy 21st Birthday Garden Party.
My son, Corey, returned home last week from a road trip across America. He’d met up with an old friend and they travelled from San Francisco to New York stopping at some really cool places along the way. Corey’s friend Mike turned 21 whilst studying in Canada and his parents want to throw a BIG party to celebrate his return.
Mike is such a great friend and I’d like to make a birthday present that’s a bit special, something he can keep. Have got a few ideas so I’m off to do some research. The party’s in August so I’d better get my skates on.
When I saw that a friend of ours had turned her beautiful hand painted designs into fabric I couldn’t resist buying one of her colourful cushions. Yvette’s designs are all colourful and fun, the covers are made from Polycotton and finished to a very high standard . I had a hard time choosing between the colours but in the end went for the Springtime design.
