Wooden letters and a camera case …

My lovely Dad has a shed to die for, he has a wood burning stove, and easel, his stained glass collection and so many treasures from years of painting and teaching that you could easily lose a day in there just playing. It’s small but beautiful. Last year, he gave me a box full of vintage printers’ blocks, letters and ampersands all dusty and in need of some tlc. I decided to free them from their box and make a collage. It took a little while, some white spirit and a bit of patience, but I’m pleased with the result. It may just look like a bunch of old letters, but they honestly mean something to me!

I have also made this felt camera case for Jimmy who loves his Holga almost as much as he loves me. It has a button fastening at the back and keeps the old dear snug and safe in his Carradice bike bag!

Off to help my eldest revise for her exams now, already looking forward to the end of June when she will sleep easy and life will be happy again.
