I just love this Anya flapper girl and she hasn't seen ink for a  while. So the challenge on Creatalicious challenges for something from the 1920s brought her to mind immediately. The sentiment was made on the PC. The flowers are my first handmade flowers! I couldn't get the hang of how to roll them at first but then saw on Youtube someone using a quilling tool. I still had mine back from the 1980s!!! and I knew exactly where it was so I dug it out and the flowers looked much better with some tighter rolling that the tool allows. I'd also like to enter her into:-
 Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge- which is for "make your own flowers"
One Stitch at a Time challenge- flowers
Divas by design challenge - pastels

On Saturday whilst I was engrossed in my painting I heard a noise outside. Then I heard what sounded like someone trying to get into the patio window! Heart racing I went to investigate and saw a long shape against the window trying to get in. It was a CAT! hanging from the sill down the window, all stretched out it just looked like someone stood there - frightened me to death. It still tried to get in even with me shouting at it! Eventually it gave up and dropped down to the patio.
