Tag Tuesday-Letter L



is for London



 For Tag Tuesday this week we are on the Letter L.
My tag this week is quite a simple one, but I wanted to use this fabric I had in my stash.
 I have chosen L is for London , as London is very significant in my life. We live about 30 miles away, so near enough to pop up for the day, but away from the hustle and bustle. The fabric has St Paul's Cathedral on it, and which me of when I first came to London to do my nurse training (a long time ago now!) and my husband , Richard,( in those days he was my boyfriend)  started work as a trainee accountant, with his office right by St Paul's. I  looked round the cathedral before meeting him one day, and when I went upstairs I found myself on a small balcony suspended over the city!  He still works in the City, but has moved a short distance to a new office.
I coloured in the fabric with Inktense pencils, which I then painted with water to bring out the colour.
