Some Old Men

822

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.

 

I’ve done a YouTube video, it’s not very good…

Me to the HouseElves, “Is it free to do YouTube?”

HouseElves to each other, “Oh God!”

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 last ten minutes. Room for improvement…

Napkin Diary For November 2014

This is a much better photo of my napkin diary for November 2014, and below are the links explaining the images and words.

Plus, I don’t think I mentioned that it is mounted onto a page from an old wallpaper samples book, given to me by my friend, Annie.

Storm Doris Is Finished

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).
