I finished this scarf just before we left for Australia. I love how it’s turned out. The yarn is from Nurturing Fibres.
I had a crochet finish while we were away.
Handspun yarn from fibre I dyed myself. I’m pleased with how this turned out. Of course there is no need for a warm shawl here in Papua New Guinea, so it’s been packed away for visits to cold climates.
I was spoilt while we were in Australia. My good friend Kerin in Perth sent me a large package of her paper scraps. She has awesome scraps 😀
My SIL Rockmelon Recycled gifted me with some embellishments and showed me how she created her backgrounds. (Mists are now on my shopping list). Last, but not least my SMIL gave me some fabulous scrapbooking papers for Christmas. This generosity has kick starting my scrap booking mojo and I turned out two pages in a short space of time.
First is this layout of our Christmas in Zambia in 2011. Better scrapped late than never. The paper is Kaiser Craft from SMIL and I took a big breath and painted directly onto the paper for the jounalling spots. Butterflies are from SIL.
I really like the way this one has turned out.
This next page is from the same day as the first one and is about how the hotel brought me a foot stool to put my handbag on. The paper is from Stampin’ Up and was a gift from SMIL. I’ve used Creativ paper flowers and the die cut is from my SIL. Photo corners were a prize from Cathi.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the page.
Gorgeous Girl also did some scrapbooking while I was working on these pages.
Completely unassisted. She also painted her journalling spot. There is journalling on it which doesn’t show in this picture. I think she’s going to be a better scrapper than I am before too long.
