Ae Fond Kiss

Throughout the world,  on the 25th of January, the life of Robert (Rabbie) Burns is commemorated.  In honour of the Scottish Bard I am sharing something I made but first I want to share this link of  Eddi Reader singing “Ae Fond Kiss”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJwy2cm9QTo. She is one of my favourite female vocalists, many may remember her from her days in Fairground Attraction.
I found the perfect image at Bumble Button of lovers in the Highlands of Scotland. This could be Rabbie himself with one of his lassies!
The image is printed onto transfer paper and image transferred to recycled curtain lining, then attached to the heart with rustic stitches. Lace inked with Fired Brick and the addition of fabric roses (My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose)

A few lines from Ae Fond Kiss.

    What a lovely way to commemorate the occasion! I enjoyed watching Eddi Reader – I remember when we first got to know each other finding out we had a love for Fairground Attraction in common!

    This is gorgeous, Lynne. Your image transfer looks faded in keeping with the theme. Hope you are celebrating today.
