Gas Street

This picture was taken of our boat in July 1999. It is moored just across the basin from where we now moor. At that time we were just passing through and visiting our daughter, Caroline, who was studying (?) at Birmingham University. We had no thoughts of ever ending up here as home.
We've had a fairly quiet week after all the fun of Sunday and the Poetry Evening.

It is now raining hard and very grey and I don't expect to poke my nose out of the boat all day. It is far too cosy inside.

A Christmas card with stripy paper down the left hand side and a Merry Christmas peel-off over the join. The tree topper is made from a glass tree that I bought from Courtyard Crafts in Liverpool some time ago. It is tuck onto gold card with the corners clipped and thread wrapped around it and then matted onto red card. The holly spring came from a cracker.

This one was made with two toppers made from confetti type trees, wrapped with silver string and stars and gems added, matted onto red corrugated, silver and blue paper. A paper border on the right hand side with a silver strip of peel-off on the join. A blue and silver bow at the top and three peel-off parcels in a line on the bottom right hand side.

Only 100 of my 700 reindeer to make. Will be posting them up fairly soon.
