We're just back from a lovely Easter break down south. We stayed just outside London in Hemel Hempstead in order to visit the Warner Bros. Studios at Leavesden to see everything Harry Potter. It was absolutely marvellous learning all about how the movies were made, the tricks of the trade! The work that went into ten years worth of movies was jsut phenomenal. We also spent some quality time with our beautiful granddaughter who is getting bigger and smarter everyday. She is 15 months now and her latest trick is to do 'round and round the garden' on your hand. If I hold out my palm and say the words, she starts running her finger around my palm (but I have to do the 'tickly under there' on her and she laughs!)
I've been somewhat absent from blogland what with one thing and another (including our lovely break). It seems to always fall to the bottom of the list of my priorities! I've been busy fulfilling orders for frames and am now doing some crafting in preparation for a spring fair on the 23rd of this month. I feel quite lucky as I've just been given three more orders, one of which has come from the couple who received the red button heart frame as a wedding gift from one of my regular customers.
This was a frame for a new baby. The colours given were grey and sage and I was advised they had used white stars in the nursery and liked a vintage feel. I had a beautiful sage fabric with little bumble bees on and purchased some little bumble bee buttons to add as a small feature. I had some wooden stars I painted white. I used grey paint on the letter and added some semi opaque textured white fabric and ribbon to add another dimension. Stars and buttons with some crocheted lace and her name and date of birth in type finished it off.
