Busy Week

We've been painting and embroidering on tyvek at my machine embroidery class using tulips as our inspiration. I was supposed to be learning how to do granite stitch but it looks more like scribble, lol. Still that's why I'm in a class, to learn. Then the tutor suggested I try writing my name. It's not easy but I was really pleased it's readable if not the most smooth writing, must practise, practise, practise!

Finally finished and delivered my friends wedding invitations. Here are a selection.

Whilst ripping up a vintage song book for the invitations I came across a song called 'Billy Boy' and I think the description is quite apt for my own Billyboy, lol.

Here he is having a well earned rest. It's a hard life being an inquisitive young cat don't you know! Purrs till next time.....


  1. Your invitations are beautiful. The bride must be most pleased. You have such talent.

  2. Well done you on your enbroidery and stopping you now!Those invitations are amazing...great job expertly done as always.Have a good week, Shaz.x
    Nearly forgot his new song!lol

  3. Wow! You have made such gorgeous Wedding invitations!:-) My two cat girls are sending purrs to the handsome Billyboy & Co.
    Have a wonderful day!

  4. I really like the invitations...such an original idea. Each one is very special.
    And as for Billy Boy, that fast and well-marked lad, he looks VERY comfy on that pretty quilt :-)

  5. Love the tags,and lucky Billyboy,with his very own song.

  6. Wow!!! Truly amazing!! All of it!!
