Kids back at school today, hard to get out of bed and organised after a reasonably lazy holidays. Lots of late nights with both the world Cup and more additively, Le Tour De France. So love the tour.
On to all things crafty. have managed to do a couple of Lo's today. First is for the Guest design spot on Sketchy Thursday. Along with this sketch
we had to include the colour yellow and put in a handmade embellishment (the wheat stalks). This is a photo I took of Henry when we stopped at an ancient harvester outside a pub in a tiny town called Morven. Henry loved climbing all over it, ever since he was little he has wanted to be a harvester man (just like Poppy was).
Second Lo is again for Mick's 50th. It will be so much harder to celebrate as one of his oldest friends was killed in a car crash on Saturday. His daughter is also one of Meaghan's closest friends, a tragic situation all around.
This Lo is for Design Dollies with this sketch:
This was taken in the early 70's. The missing photo is my next up brother who thought that the booth only took one photo, and the last is just after he had been shoved back in the booth by Michael. I believe he is still unhappy about this strip of photos. Oh well...
No photo's of sportsmen this week, just in case I am getting some sort of pervy,bad reputation (I am what I am..)However after watching the aforementioned tour, I am intrigued by the girls presenting the flowers at the end of each Day. These are hard fought over positions by the models in France. Usually they dress them in mostly classic, occasionally odd but even I can appreciate that there is some merit in the outfits chosen. But I admit to being completely puzzled by the King of the Mountains girls. OK I acknowledge it is hard to be classy in large red polka dots, but in years past they have managed. This year they have come up with:
Yep, umbrellas as dresses. I suppose they must be cool, no clinging materials...
Jo, it is up to you to explain to me why?? Is this a trend I have somehow missed?? Unlike me I know, to have missed a fashion trend but to a philistine like me they just look a bit , well, silly...
have a great week. xx
