Look at these..........
Look at these beautiful little peg dolls that were made by my Auntie Lucy, what is even more incredible is that they are over 20 years old.
My Auntie made them for my Mam all those years ago and they are still going strong , which can only be a credit to my Aunt for making them so well. They have not been packed away , but have been on display all these years on my mams mantlepiece.
Auntie Lucy has always enjoyed crafts of one kind or another , sewing , drawing and in recent years card making.
The pencil drawings were some that she did back in the 70's which i have had framed and hanging in my house since then. I have always loved the one of Jesus, but the detail on the one of Margot Fontain is incredible.
Her drawings were always stunning, and she had an uncanny knack of capturing the likeness of a person. A fantastic talent, you have to agree.
Thanks Auntie Lucy for being such an inspiration.
