JOURNAL COVER

After seeing all the beautiful journal covers being shown out there in Blogland I decided it was time to make myself one
Today I saw my sister and gave her the placemats I made her for her birthday (see earlier post)
She loved them and her daughter was deciding which one was going to be hers so I was quite pleased
The local paper rang today They had heard about Anthonys award in the Cancer Councils arts awards and want to do a story on him
He will be proud

A few more siggies

The siggies are beautiful too - I am a sucker for embroideries like those.

Congratulations to Anthony - nice that he has encouragement like that. ;-)x
