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.

 

Margate Photographs

818

818. Three lovely unnamed ladies.

On July 14th, 2016, I went on a trip to Margate and bought the photographs below (and above).

It was a rare day out with my good friend, Cathy.

So far, I have made a few cards, the posts for which will follow shortly. Post links will be added below, as and when, but you can also follow my progress on Instagram. I will be using these envelopes with the cards, for as long as they last.

You can see the finished cards here: 810, 811, 812, 813, 814, (more to come).

The intention is to list them in my shop soon, but as usual, I am finding it very difficult to take decent ‘product shots’.
