Sorry to have been away for so long – where does the time go? I am still busy behind the scenes, so to speak, and there’s a crochet blanket and a couple of knitted things in progress to keep me occupied.
I have been trying out some artwork and calligraphy, or rather re-discovering my love of the same and I’ve just popped in to show you the latest.
The first is for a Welsh friend whose birthday is next week:
There’s no worry that she’s spot it here first because my friend doesn’t like to spend much time on the computer.
The next piece is for a (possible) printed Christmas card for this year. Here is the rough draft:
The words are from the Christmas hymn, “Love Came Down at Christmas,” by Christina Rosetti. I prefer the second draft, but I will need to re-do it because the words are too close to the edge for the commercial printer’s software; it’s quite expensive to get them printed I want to get it right.
Hope you are all having a lovely summer – or perhaps you live in a place where July is one of the colder months? In any case, I wish you well,
