Fam’ly Occasions

Well! Even I am surprised that I have managed to do as I promised by returning here to share my latest project. It has certainly been a “get things done” kind of a day. So, last weekend my parents celebrated their Ruby Wedding. Forty years of marriage is  some achievement and we all wanted to … More Fam’ly Occasions

A funny thing happened on Sunday. We had spent the day feeling a little jealous of all of the pictures friends in the UK sent/posted of the snowfall there.

When I work on these negative space pieces, I love how the shape emerges … More Tying the Knot

Weekend WIP Roundup
