Scrap City

The fibre and Stitch yahoo site are having a monthly challenge and this month it was make something from scraps. I thought I had put this up last night and I must have got carried away with the photos.
Any way this started with a bit of felt with painted vliesofix with transfer foil and then to knock it back I put a painted nappy liner over the top and then looked in my scrap bag with the odd bits left over from fusing and without cutting any scraps I came up with this. I love fanciful cities, then hand embroidered and beaded and added bits and had fun.
Today we went to a funeral, Josie Panozzo (nee Taylor) was a couple of years ahead of me at school and the eldest of the 5 Taylor girls. She like my brother in law had Motor neurone disease. Her sister Jenny who is in England was in my class at school.
It was a good funeral, as funerals go, she had been a not so close neighbor of ours for many years and I hadnt caught up with her much lately but what I found so wonderful was that her daughter Angela who I probably hadnt seen since she was a child, was the spitting image of the Josie I knew when we were at school.
So the next and the next generation come on and we are remembered in them.
