It's gorgeously sunny here in Cambridgeshire today, but I can't enjoy it too much I have lots of housework to catch up on (YUK), but somebody has to do it. I attended my long service award at Freemans on Friday, presentation and buffet which was absoloutely lovely. I would like to say thanks to my manager Lynne and senior manager Chris for all their help and support over the last few years, and a special thanks to Chris for arranging the presentation. As you know I've already spent my vouchers on my camera which I am very pleased with. It's a shame I'll be made redundant on 24th July, I've enjoyed working there for the past 21 years, and am sad to see it go. Freemans catalogue will still be running, but we will no longer do any work in Peterborough, it'll all be done in Bradford.
I've used an image from Pink Gem. This is one of my very favourite images, excellent for all those little girls. It's quite a sizeable image too. I've coloured with Copic's and used Basic Grey Porcelain papers. I blanket stitched around the circle, and also did a few straight stitches in the middle of some of the toadstool spots.
As an added bonus, (and I should get a gold star), I've added more stitches in the form of a crochet circle, using a brad for the centre.
I decorated the inside using another image and offcuts of paper.
