and now I share five snapshots from my home and some of my story. Many years ago a lady painted this tray and it was the prize for the Most appropriate title for a little in house newsletter among women at our church I entered with the title "Among Friends" and I won. This has ever since taken pride of place in my home - it was a sign that one day I would own my own cottage and now many years later we live in it and this tray hangs on the wall. I am crying as I write this because dreams do come true and My Heavenly Father gave this to me to help me hang onto that dream! I guess at times along the way their was HOPE, doubt, despair, RENEWED HOPE prayer and dreaming, window shopping, bargain hunting, waiting, crying, Believing. Happening!
This is a close up of the fabric of the kitchen curtains I made as another glimpse of HOPE! I had the roll of material for ages, finally had enough money to buy it, but then didn't have time to make it. I originally bought it to recover our lounge suite but wasn't brave enough to attempt it. But I did make a' mock up' cushion to visualise what it would look like. Next is a close up of the fabric that the lounge was finally covered in - better quality and done professionally about a month before we found our new home. It went so well!
Just one of my teddies, she was falling over. I found her at a garage sale and brought her home.
This is a picture of my first (I think) piece of patchwork with roses and teacups - I have liked them both for a long time.
Well later I must upload that funny picture of me as the "Princess Clown" drinking tea [I cut and paste text and some how its now a Link???] like Alice in Wonderland at 'The Mad Hatter's Teaparty" ANOTHER STORY - ANother DAY HEh heH - am I weird or what - yes! The photos are here as a reminder to me so I will keep you guessing!?! They are taken on the second camera on my mobile phone so in reverse.
