I was looking though my recipe books looking for a certain cake l wanted to make. (A simple tea cake). When out of it's pages fell this little picture my DS2 drew. An" idea" came to me, l would make this into a recipe book cover for my Mother for Christmas this year. So she could collate her favorite Christmas recipes and hand them down after she is no longer with us. ( Which hopefully will not be for a long time yet). I went off to Officeworks to have the original enlarged as l was not sure how l would tackle this project. So l have decide to make my mother a wall hanging also.
My sister Wanda past away in 2009 from the big "C". She was only 52yrs old.
She had a hard life after marring young and having two children a pigeon pair, her marriage broke down, after postnatal depression, nervous break down turned into schizophrenia, for many years, a treatment on medication and shock treatments. Then after she finial come off her medication the big "C" came along with all its treatments. Makes me very emotional just thinking about a life lost.
As a young girl growing up she was a bit of a Tom boy. Full of mischief , fun and a great sister to have on your side. Always there to lend a helping hand if needed. As the years past on into high school she showed her talents with sewing , music and drawing.
This is when she drew this picture for my cookery class. Each year l made a Christmas cake for the family and this year l had chosen to do something a little different. Hence the sketch was drawn onto the cake. I was so excited for getting full marks for having an original idea. Thanks to my sisters help!
