Tiny Tia

Good morning all.

Hope everyone in the UK are enjoying their bank holiday eventhough the weather is a little damp.

I have been doing a lot of crafting as I find it the best way to take my mind of things and not think to much about my gran. She's definately getting worse and it's gone real fast. She called me on the 5th and seemed ok and in good spirit and now she's in hospital and she won't be able to go home as she can't take care of herself anymore. She's needing transfusions and she's hallucinating a lot, seeing ants and wasps in the hospital ward. It's hard when you are so far away and unable to do anything. I have always been really close to her and I am finding this very hard to deal with. Anyhow.......

This is one of the cards I have made.



I love paper piecing and this little lady is a real sweetie. She's one of many gorgeous images found at Some Odd Girl and I love their HUGE eyes :). Coloured with Promarkers (as usual hehe) and I wanted a simple look for this. I made tiny holes around the edge using a sewing gadget - paper piercing lol.
