It’s Winter Time At FSC – Brrrr So Cold

Nearly two months since I have posted anything, now that’s bad … it’s not that I haven’t been making things, just more like experimenting and taking a different turn with my crafting. Have loads on the go but nothing finished.

Andrew’s mother passed away last month, she was 92, so things have been a little sad in the Chillman household.

For this month it’s ‘Winter’ at FSC the colder the better lol.

Stamped onto some beautiful material which I machine stitched onto a tag then added a die cut.  This is a double sided tag.

Below is the stamped image of whats on the other side of the tag.

This tag was going to be my piece for FSC but when I took the photo of it against some of my birthday presents it went so well with the material it was sitting on I changed my mind.


Hubby bought me a Gemini die cutting machine for my birthday and we also went out in the morning for breakfast at our fave cafe called The Book.  Will tell you more about this fabulous place another time.

After breakfast we went shopping and below is some of the stash that I bought.

The other pic is of some of the things I have been making.  More on that another time also.  Trust me I have been a very busy girl!!

The day didn’t end there, in the evening Andrew took me out for a meal and this was the biggest surprise of all.

There is a restaurant that I have been wanting to go to in Clonegal for ages and ages (in actual fact years) it’s called Sha-Roe Bistro.

Wow, I actually went there and it didn’t disappoint, it was amazing, had the best birthday ever.

Thank you again Andrew, you’re one in a million babe.

Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.

Ink Art Designs Etsy Shop is sponsoring FSC and they will be offering a stamp for the winner of each new challenge.

    Can’t wait to find out what you have been up to… it looks like fabric is involved!! Lovely tag, Shirley, the reverse of the tag is my favourite, imagery and colours so delicate, beautiful through and through!
    Sounds like you had a busy (and sad) autumn, could explain why I haven’t had any news about my FSC win… xx

  4. Hi Shirley. Condolences to you both on the passing of Andrew’s mum. It’s always a sad time when we have known them for so long.
    And a big happy birthday! You got spoilt – and that is what birthday’s are all about.
    A gorgeous tag! And so beautifully put together.
