London, Paris, New York.....

After seeing this post on Andrea's blog, at "The Pink Poodle", I felt so inspired to create something for hubs and I to hang on our wall to reminisce about our travels and the places we have been. I haven't finished it yet as it needs the gaps filling and varnishing.
I wanted to do the places we have both been in bigger letters and the places we have been individually in smaller letters. I shall show you when I have finished!
Thank you to Andrea for the inspiration!
I mixed up the right shade of red I was after then added a little squirt of black which I didn't quite mix in to give an uneven effect when rolled on.
I was after an aged, left on a building wall for a while look. What do you think?
Master 9 told me yesterday that is is getting rather cold in the mornings now and that he would like a new dressing gown. We dragged ourselves off to Big W yesterday to have a look.....$35.00 each...."No way am I spending that much on a dressing gown. Let's go to Lincraft and get a pattern. I've got stacks of polar fleece at home; I'll make you one".
So, the pattern is cut out........

And, I have been busy doing a few little things for the shop and for friends as well.

I haven't been posting much lately, my apologies, but life is getting in the way at the moment!

I hope you are all well? Kathryn. XX

Wow... love it Kathryn. The colour and mottled effect is terrific. I especially like that it is personalised art that means something to both of you.

Life does get a bit hectic at times. Hope all is going well with the house.

Love the travel board what a great idea . $35.00 for a dressing gown that they won't fit in next year !!! A mum made one will be much nicer anyway .

Love the sign Kathryn ~ such a great idea. I like the two different sizes for the font.

What a special treat for Master 9 ~ having it made by you will make it an especially warm dressing gown!
I think I'll have a peek at your shop now.
Have a joy-filled day!

Sorry to be a copycat, Kathryn, but I will HAVE to do both of these projects. Love the art work and definitely need a new dressing gown (which I can take when we go to Asia and Europe in July). Great inspirations, thank you!
