Penny Black Tom and Tilly

Penny Black Tom and Tilly by judkajudy

This image really touched my heart the first time I saw it!! To me, it represents love that has stood the test of time and romance knows no age.

I paper-pieced the clothes and used Copics to color the rest of the image. There are gems in Tilly's bouquet.

It's been a good mix of household chores and time for hobbies at our house this weekend. Summer has landed here in Alabama and outdoor work and walking the dog takes place either in the early morning or the late evening.   I hope you are enjoying this long weekend, the official start of Summer!

Of course today we are flying lots of flags in our front yard to honor those who have died serving our country. They are a reminder that we must never take for granted the life we enjoy in this country.

Thanks for stopping by!
