Happy Birthday To Me!

I blinked and now my blog is 6yrs old today!
Doesn't time fly when your having Crafty Fun.
I thought it might be  rather fun to go back to 2010
and pick one of  my first posts to re show to you.
So here is my blast from the past
Turkish Delight.

A five-sided silk embroidered box.

Made from real silk material
which at the time was nearly 40yrs old.

I had a look in my material stash
the other day and found I still had a piece
of the silk left.
Also pleased to say that the lady who now owns this
is still one of my followers!!

Hi Mrs A,
Happy Birthday to you and I do hope you had a wonderful day.
That silk box reminds me of a box my mother made yonks ago only hers was a house with dolls inside.
Which she made for a church fete.
I keep thinking of it lately, and wish I had bought it, but I was too young to have appreciated all the wonderful work involved.
So thank you for reminding me of it yet again.
I wish I was the lady who owned that beautiful piece of work.
Sadly I can no longer sew because of my eyes it takes me so long to thread a needle.
It's the very fine detail that my eyes won't let me see.
I used to embroider, and sew quite a bit at one time.
Yes I am one of your followers, and have been for quite some time.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Congratulations on your blog-iversary! Six years - that's awesome! I have only been at it 2.5 years. Your silk box is beautiful! It's fun to look back on earlier works, isn't it?!

Thank you for re-following me! I looked through my followers and your face was truly missing so I don't know what happened, but I'm glad you are back! I read on other blogs that this was happening - I hope I haven't dropped any of the blogs I follow - I'm not sure how I will know. You're still coming up on my dashboard so that's good!

Cathy said...

Hi Mrs A. congrats on your bog a versary! What an awesome project! Blogger is definitely doing strange things, so I don't know if I'm coming or going lol!

Brenda in IN said...

Happy birthday to your blog! That is a stunning box you made and the fabric is just gorgeous. What a wonderful start to your blog and it just keeps getting better.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

GORGEOUS! I'd be afraid to touch 40-year old fabric let alone do something with it (and I'd never manage something so fabulous).

Happy birthday to your blog!!!

Margo said...

Congratulations !!!!
Stunning project !

Tina Z. said...

Happy 6th Blog birthday, Mrs. A.

Karen Petitt said...

Happy Blog-Aversary! Your Turkish Delight is stunning. Lucky lady whoever won this one. Karen x

Jo said...

And I'm that lucky lady! :)
I can tell everyone that as beautiful as this looks in the photos here, in real life it is even more so. It sits on my desk, housing my paper flower collection.
It really is a special piece, not only because it was handmade, but also because the fabric is as old as I am.
I'll have to take a photo and show you.
Belated blogoversary wishes! Mwah! xx
