Our Beautiful and Clever Daughter



















No cards for me today, but I thought I would post some photographs of Francesca . Yesterday we travelled to Bristol for her Graduation Years Degree show.  She has just finished her final year at University and this was the exhibition of all the final pieces.

Her piece was placed behind this white wall and to see it you had to look through two spy holes.  Obviously I couldn't photograph it but it was like looking through a child's Kaleidoscope, it was all based on a mirrored box with lots of coloured perspex and lights, it was very effective.

This is Francesca and her boyfriend ( wow they grow up so quick it only seems like yesterday she was a little tomboy playing in the garden and climbing trees!)  The step stool has been placed there for the children to see and they were absolutely fascinated by it!

Next week we should hear what mark she has for her degree.( fingers crossed)
Sorry about the quality of the photographs but my camera is broken and its had to go to the repair shop, these were taken with a really old one! 
Hope to get some crafting in this weekend, its turned cold again so no gardening for me. Hope you are all having a good weekend.

Hi Sally

Lovely photos (despite you using an old camera) it really doesn't show. Love the idea of looking through the "peep" hole - how clever! Fingers crossed for when those results come in....
