Isle of Wight

For two years I attended a very small school in Woolwich, only had 3 classes for children agd 5-11. Each year the older children had a trip to the Isle of Wight, always the same hotel. We made a journal before we went which covered geography, history etc of the island, work to do on the trip,and had a diary in the back to fill in each day, including a pocket money sheet to keep our accounts! I still have this journal, safely stored in the loft, will have to do a lo with pics from it to make a DLO.
I do wonder where all those children are now?

Colour Album

Two more pages for the colour album.

Navy page, a Sashiko bag made with machine embroidered squares.

20 Minutes

Am I being mean? These photos were taken a few days after DD3 had an operation to remove an extra tooth behind her upper front teeth. Talking and eating were difficult. Here it took her 20 minutes to eat half a pot of Petit Filous, and they are small!

More LO's

Weekend lo's

An old photo of dh parents on a day trip to Hayling Island in 1977.

Double 8x8 lo for Grandad's album of the christening. Unfortunately the church lighting made all the photos very yellow so I have made them B/W but still a lot of shadows. Journalling has to be completed, but I didn't remember all the god parents names.

Photos taken the first day we had Megan, Ben is asserting his authority as the resident dog! Sorry about the terrible photo of lo.

Still in simple mode

My lo for this week's challenge on UKS. Title had to be from a book.

This photo was taken at dd2's wedding. It was only 3 weeks since dh had a brain tumour removed, but he insisted the wedding wasn't cancelled, he wanted to be there to give her away! All photos of dh were taken from the left so his scars didn't show!

This lo is for dd2's album, a lovely pic of all the sisters and brothers.
