I've finished another ATC card.
The armchair, antimacassar and floral cushion and wallpaper suggest that a little old lady lives in this house, but she is a sparky old lady who likes cats and books. Having been for a good stiff walk in the snow she's about to settle down with Pride and Prejudice and a nice cup of tea (it is just a little too early for a dry sherry). She has just gone to fetch the biscuit tin.
Lovely. The title and your description are perfect.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous, your choice of fabrics (not just the silk!) is perfect, and love the backstory too now!ReplyDelete
This is wonderful - you really capture the spirit of cosiness and that little old lady :) Amazing also that it's so tiny!ReplyDelete
Yes, I can see in my imagination how she is looking for the bicuit tin a little in a hurry because she wants the tea not to get cold and read on and know more about the story. You did it beautifully!ReplyDelete
It is never too early for a small dry sherry Catherine! What a wonderful little piece of art you have produced :)ReplyDelete
This narrative is perfect for your block. It warmed my heart!ReplyDelete
It's lovely, so tiny, your story telling and creativity know no boundsReplyDelete
love your card and your story. Perfect. And your guest post on very berry was great tooReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I want to be that little old lady! Looking at your raw edge appliqué too as I'm trying some for the Four in Art project. Do you do it free motion your machine?ReplyDelete
I love all the little details you put into your small compositions! the fringe on the afghan, The teacut on the floor, the details of the cat there's a lot to look at in such a small picture, really fun to look at! cheers!ReplyDelete
