A death and funeral

23 August 2010: Remembering you Dad...

I'm trying so hard to get into a routine with my blogging, but then life has it's way of handing you all sorts....

My father passed away on 23 August after a short but stubborn fight with brain cancer. We are going to miss you Dad.

Buried Dad 28 August 2010.

Book Cover Complete!!

I'm so happy, i completed this book cover - and on SA's Women's Day yesterday!!! (it was more fun than ironing the bundle of laundry, lol). In hindsight i should have embroidered a pattern over the different fabrics - like crazy patchworking!! Anyway i'm glad it's finally finished. I hope the lucky recipient will enjoy it. And once the notebook is used up, the cover can be removed and placed on a new book. The butterfly is a bead.

Not quite sure what i want to tackle next... lots of ideas though, i'll think some more whilst finish the ironing :-) .
