An old, stained-by-life, uniform shirt, worn by a prefer-to-be-nameless friend, day-in and day-friggin-out.
I have made a few cards from vintage knitting patterns.
You can see the documents below, so you know what they looked like before I cut them up.
The no-longer-available Sylko thread is beautiful, giving the smoothest stitching experience I have ever had. Fact not euphemism.
Printed around 1965, is my guess, since the prices are ‘old money’.
I have paired them up with those Waverly envelopes.
All of my work is individually numbered. The camera guy is 822, the older man is 823, and, the pipe man is 824.
They may be used as Father’s Day cards, or they may not, and will start appearing in my Folksy Shop over the next few days.

Yep, this is my fifth attempt. The others wouldn’t upload. Apparently, I need a more streamable file format. If I knew what that meant I would do it, obviously. Also, the video is phone shaped. And tiny. Two black stripes down the side. Big ones. The black stripes are bigger than the video. Don’t expect much. It lasts ten minutes. Room for improvement…
This is a much better photo of my napkin diary for November 2014, and below are the links explaining the images and words.

All of my work is numbered, this is piece 612.
I have finished ‘Storm Doris Is Coming’, which was started on February 1st, 2017. It’ll be a while before I tackle another month’s-worth of news. (Will be posting ‘Fake News Is Killing Minds’, shortly, if you were wondering what happened to it).
If you are new to this project, you can find an explanation here.
Links to the various news items can be found, here.
It is listed in my shop, and I am now going to have a cup of tea.
