Child at heart

Going with the color scheme of black and white, I just played to my hearts content. 

I cut a white, cloth grocery bag and after sticking some newspaper, dabbed black and white paint. 

Using a marker, I drew in the picture of this little girl. I added some hand stitching and some machine stitches.

 She was speaking to me right from the start.

"Hi!" said the little one with a smile, " Do you want to come to my playroom?"

"Why yes, of course!"

The playroom was full of little dolls and a cute tiny cupboard that had an orange tea set.

I just loved her room!


"Would you like some tea?"

I had tea and biscuits with her.


"I have to go now" I said reluctantly as I walked out of the playroom.

" Call me whenever you want to play" she said "My pic is there on the living room shelf.You just have to look at it and I will be with you."


Living room shelf? Where? 


I looked in my house and sure enough, there she was!


Wait a minute...that is ME!!

As a little girl smiling back at me!

 

I had found my own self. 

A child at heart!
