Another Very Sad Loss

It is with great sadness that I share the news
of the passing of my dear 90 year old Dad
died of pneumonia after suffering a period of time with chronic heart failure.

It had been only 10 days after arriving home
from an interstate visit to say "our goodbyes" while
there was time to share some special moments sitting in the sunshine
and staring at the clouds.

At the time of hearing how quickly of his passing
I was working on my new journal
"Tattered Angels"

immediately felt him surrounded by their presence with him.

This project will now be put aside as we travel back to Adelaide for his funeral
during this week which means I will be absent from my blog
until approx. 22nd August
but I will have my Ipad with me to be in touch!

Farewell great and wonderful man who served his country
in the Royal Australian Air Force No. 3 Squadron in
the Middle East and other threatres of
World War II

(Dad is on the Left)

leaving behind my stepmother, siblings and grandchildren.

I sincerely hope his legacy of love, discipline and courage
continue to live on in me!

Thank you all so very much for your condolences that I have already received

to all the wonderful people who have enjoyed my creations enough to follow
even if you have no blog for me to comment back.

Love and all good wishes to you!

A New Collage and some Gifts to share

As many of you know I have been away for a short while
visiting my elderly father in Adelaide,
South Australia
during this visit Jeff and I shared a "mystery tour"
with a very old friend, Sue, and her husband, Ian,
which took us to a beach resort for
2 nights.
It really was a most pleasant time visiting some beautiful places, a winery,
and gorgeous galleries and shops.

As it was Sue's birthday I made this collage for her.

I did manage to find some bits and pieces for creating with like these:

 and these.

On my arrival back home there were two parcels awaiting from dear friends including
one from Marie of
with these beautiful items

Some beautiful vintage photos, text, music sheets, ledger paper, vintage
articles from magazines, two packets of mixed threads
these gorgeous vintage wooden pegs

which will be so useful in winding on my laces.
Thank you so very much Marie - for all your kindness!

from my friend Judy came this wonderful selection of doilies in all number of
sizes from tiny to large

I have already dyed some and am onto my next project
with these -
Thank you Judy so much - you are always so generous and thoughtful.

Another sale - Petite Rose Journal has now been posted off to its new
owner in Australia.

Wishing every one a wonderful upcoming week creating or doing what you most love to do.  A special thanks to all my new followers and to everyone who has commented on my
new header.

Love Suzy xxx
