But first when I arrived home from holiday I was met with a huge amount of mail and in the pile was my pre -ordered Artful Blogging mag. Many of my favorite bloggers were there including Kari at Artysmama and it made the magazine even more special that I knew of so many bloggers. Kari is celebrating her entry in the first edition by having an art party and just in the nick of time I am joining The Artful blogging day with her ( http://artsymama.blogspot.com/ ).
The Kiss by Klimt
You might like to see something my mum has made to, she is also a textile artist (at a spritely 73 years of age)
She has designed this jewellery from scratch inspired from the art deco era. She used layers of gauzy fabrics on a backing of interfacing and free machine stitched the pattern in and then burnt back using a heating tool to achieve the pattern.
Hope this has added to the party atmosphere, and now with any good party where's the food:))
