I've just finished cooking banana and chocolate chip muffins which smell divine - but must refrain from being over indulgent (did a bit too much of that over Christmas as my hips would tell you). Off to visit my brother shortly (with some muffins in tow - well it would be rude not to)! He's moving to Ireland this week with his girlfriend and he's going to leave a massive hole in our lives when he is gone. Having spent 14 years away from family when we only lived 88 miles away, the idea of him being in another country and across water is somewhat daunting. But it's a new fresh start for him and his Missus and I can understand that. So whilst I wish them both well I can't help but feel a little selfish with my own feelings at the moment, having got a tiny social group anyway the loss of anyone in that group is always so huge. However, I'm hoping in the days of social interaction (which was lacking when we lived away) that it might not feel quite so distant, but time will tell.
Anyway enough of my overall sadness thought I'd pop on a photo from our visit to Durham last year, a double page that I did an age ago, however I was really pleased with the overall colours and the paper usage which shows what a dramatic Cathedral it is.
Up close hand stitched detail, punched hearts and matted photos!
Using a die cut circle for the journalling on the two pages to balance the pages up.
I hope your Sunday is proving positive and fruitful!
