The Sew Sindy Page

Simply the page from the story:


using some Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday and a big October Afternoon Thrift Shop sticker


Oh, no, there is one other thing - I have been testing out the new mobile device version of From High In The Sky. So if you read on your phone, have a look and see what you think. Quicker? easier? What do you reckon?

Oh sewing Sindy clothes brings back happy memories of times spent with my gran but I have to admit that although I had a Sindy I really wanted my cousins Tressie doll xxx

great worn, aged look - the fashion drawings bring back many memories

Lisa said...

this is a great page and the elements you have used are perfect. I like the top cluster especially. And such a great CC background paper. Reminds me that I ought to stock up on some basics like this - love it!

Gorgeous! Perfection as always.

As for the phone stuff - you are veering into another language there for me I'm afraid :D

alexa said...

Love those models - gosh, memory lane again. They are perfect for your page, and love the appearance of Sindy herself. Can't help re the phone - mine only does calls and texts!

Jimjams said...

Perfect ledger paper for a sewing page - lots of fun(ky) embellies as usual. Great stuff!

Lynn said...

Another great page. Checked out your blog on my phone. Loads really quickly and easy to read and navigate. Also easier to comment. I usually avoid commenting when reading on my phone but this was okay to do.

Louise said...

Sorry - not up to date with all the phone tech stuff, way over my head!!

Great page, love the distressed look and vintage feel. No probe accessing your blog on my touch. I haven't worked out how to post photos that are loaded on the laptop from the iTunes.... So if you know, can you tell me?

Love it! The colors are so in keeping with the era, just a perfect blend.

Jennifer said...

Great that you have the Sindy story documented! I love this CC line!!!

Missus Wookie said...

Love this CC line (well I love most of 'em) bought two or three sets of it. I like the cluster and balance of elements plus the top cluster. Distressed edges make me think of the old book too.

Susan said...

Great page!!

Heather said...

fabulous page Sian. such lovely colours xx

Amanda said...

I think Sindy should do a fashion show. Looking forward to seeing all her new outfits. I used to make clothes for mine too but I don't think they were as good as yours. Love the layout your title lettering is perfect.

Gail said...

Love it! Like the addition of those fashions from the past too. Fraid I can't help you with the phone bit - I don't do network stuff on mine (gets way tooo expensive when we travel, lol).

Karen said...

Another wonderful layout! I love all the distressing, and October Afternoon is one of my favorites.

Melissa said...

Cute page - I like the crinkled edge, making the layout look more vintagey.

Gem's Crafts said...

Love your LO Sian, it really reflects the story and the sewing that you used to do :)

JulieJ said...

Love your LO - just perfect for the subject. And yes I will get round to blogging about mine - it's on the list, after how I found out black is my least scrapped colour and story telling sunday. OOooo there's an idea for ten on the tenth - list of ten blog posts to do!!!!

debs14 said...

I viewed the page on my iphone and it loaded instantly and was perfectly sized. How did you do that?!!!
Brilliant layout, I feel quite nostalgic for my Sindy doll now, wonder if I can find her up in the loft ......

Lizzie said...

Good page - I like the "note paper" for your journalling and the little cut-out fashion illustrations. It's colourful and fun too.

Clair said...

Oh wow! This is stunning!
