Back safe and sound, but exhausted, after my trip to Hull. Having mentioned about Hull to Sheffield being a long train journey it turned out to be even longer as we got held up outside Selby. At least on arrival in Sheffield there was the sight of the Christmas tree to raise my spirits.
I have fond memories of Sheffield train station at Christmas. My grandparents would arrive their when they stayed with us. We would go and meet them and I can remember being so excited, standing beside the tree on the concourse, waiting for them to appear. After what seemed a lifetime my Grandad’s face would appear over the wall at the top of the stairs they had to walk down to reach us. The wall has gone now, and the station has been modernised, but the layout and the stairs remain the same and I often think of those times as I make my way to wherever I’m going and when I return.
Today I am sharing a little Christmas bauble that I made using a lovely angel image from The Gecko Galz.
I’ve learned from previous attempts, that trying to “float” an image inside a bauble is not as easy as it looks and so on this occasion have played safe! I’ve used a strip of vintage music manuscript, also from The Gecko Galz, and some ivory crochet lace around the centre of the bauble and topped it with the glittered image.
I’ve added some more lace and some wired, gold starry trim around the top of the bauble.
I thought these might be quite nice if they were personalised with someone’s name.
Despite the long and tedious journey, yesterday’s event in Hull was good fun. We had a bit of a smoothie making competition and some of our delegates came up with a great jingle which they were brave enough to perform to camera. You can check it out here and it would be great if you left a comment.
Thanks for buzzing by.
