Letter L

 Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a good week, despite all the snow. I am a bit late posting today as I have gone down with a virus. I am bored with it now, so am ready to be up and about again!

is for London



My tag this week is quite a simple one, but I wanted to use this fabric I had in my stash.
I have chosen L is for London , as London is very significant in my life. We live about 30 miles away, so near enough to pop up for the day, but away from the hustle and bustle. The fabric has St Paul's Cathedral on it, and which me of when I first came to London to do my nurse training (a long time ago now!) and my husband ( in those days he was my boyfriend)  started work as a trainee accountant, with his office right by St Paul's. I  looked round the cathedral before meeting him one day, and when I went upstairs I found myself on a small balcony suspended over the city!  He still works in the City, but has moved a short distance to a new office.
I coloured in the fabric with Inktense pencils, which I then painted with water to bring out the colour.

  1. Love the way you have used the fabric for your tag Jane. Great memory too. I have a memory of climbing the stairs to try to get to the whispering gallery at the top of St Pauls but the stairs went from old stone to new and see through iron! I didn't like looking down through them one bit so I didn't make it to the top!!!

  4. Great tag and theme choice Jane :) Lovely memories you have shared too. I have read a little about the Inktense pencils and wondered if I would use them a lot.
