The letter L this time on the Craft Barn Alphabet Challenge but with a twist.  A window had to be included.  I had a look at Lattice but kept coming back to Landscape.  The landscape I wanted to use was a photograph of Wastwater in the Lake District which I took in May.. I also wanted to suggest the whitewashed  houses you see in the Lakeland, so this is a sort of inside out view of the Lake.
the windows were packing inside a child's game. I did think of putting lattice in them but it obscured the photograph.  The wall is painted with PaperArtsy Grunge paste and Fresco Nougat and here it is with tag.

gave me trouble, I didn't have the connection with just one word, as in previous weeks, instead my mind hopped from one to another so in the end my mind was a JUMBLE..........see what I did there?

I made the background using my new Seth Apter stencil,  I made a jumping jack which looks remarkably like Jagger. My happiest addition to my collection of useless knowledge is that this little gadget for cutting pastry was called a jagger.

Here is page with tag.
Not many letters to go now in the Craft Barn Alphabet challenge, where did this year go?  Time to start working on the cover.

I am loving the costumes on "Strictly" this year, for once they seem to be being kind to the "older" women.

Looking forward to Ally Pally on Saturday, hoping that the change from our usual Thursday will result in less traffic but I think this was the wrong time to re-visit crazy quilting.....there will be too many temptations.
 Looking forward to catching up with Lynda Monk and to seeing Sophie of What Delilah Did  who is one of my new found relations.
