I've been away, off-line, for a week and am now looking forward to being back both in Real Life and in Blogland.
I was staying at my sister's and Riaham's house where I was looked after so well in every way.
Riaham says hello.
My sister made the magnificent crocheted blanket.
I made Riaham's hat and frock coat.

Susi at "Art Journal Journey" has given us the unusual and fun challenge to make a collage with no faces, wings or leaves.
I made two for the challenge before I went on holiday.
First a textile collage called "Treasure Chest"
black fabric mono-printed with acrylics,
beads and sequins and
hand and machine stitching.
The second collage is postcard size (6 x 4 inches)
three painted houses cut out and pasted,
the house on the right being first pasted on to an acrylic painted background and
the background coloured in a patchwork fashion.
