Readers seem to have enjoyed me delving into my photo archives in February, with a retrospective of 2004 . . . so for this month, I’m looking back at 2005.
I can’t remember exactly what was happening in family life in 2005 but I must have been quite busy with 3 growing teenagers because I seem to have accomplished less stitching.
The project that kept me busy for 5 months of that year was
The set of ten Rheinhardy animals. Actually had my minute of fame with these too
Other stitching that year . . .
gifts for two newborns
a photo album for my sister-in-law’s 40th birthday
“The Wave” a Dimension’s kit for a friend’s daughter
some stitching on perforated paper, to decorate a couple of CD pouches.
And this design, stitched for my friend, Diana . . . adapted from a Janlynn kit where there were originally 3 ladies in the picture. These two voluptuous ladies represent myself and Diana – me being the taller one, and Diana wearing the purple hat ^^
In hommage of Erma Bombeck
Age 3: She looks at herself and sees a Queen.
Age 8: She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.
Age 15: She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Sister (Mum I can’t go to school looking like this!) Age 20: She looks at herself and sees “too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly”- but decides she’s going out anyway.
Age 30: She looks at herself and sees “too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly” – but decides she doesn’t have time to fix it, so she’s going out anyway.
Age 40: She looks at herself and sees “clean” and goes out anyway.
Age 50: She looks at herself and sees “I am” and goes wherever she wants to go.
Age 60: She looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can’t even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers the world.
Age 70: She looks at herself & sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.
Age 80: Doesn’t bother to look.
Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with the world.
