Hello crafty friends.
I’m here today with the saddest post I’ve ever had to write.
Our dear friend and former DT member Leslie Hanna passed away suddenly yesterday. We won’t go into details but thought instead we would write a few words here and re-share a couple of our favourite projects of hers here.
Leslie, as you may all remember was our Sketch Master for quite some time and brought to life many different sketches and ideas for you all to find inspiration from. When we first told her we were calling her the Sketch Master for her monthly post, she nearly killed us and demanded a less ridiculous name, but of course we didn’t listen and she played along (rolling her eyes every time she had to add her Sketch Master name badge I’m sure).
I loved Leslie’s style of crafting, it was so very HER. No nonsense, fun and interesting and very very dry-witted. She never really played by the crafting “rules” but was always willing to give different ideas and techniques a try.
Here are just a few of the many MANY projects she made for us
see what I mean? No style was out of her repertoire, she just made what she felt like, and I loved her for it.
And one last one that really sums up how we’re all feeling right now.
We’ll miss you Leslie. Thank you for your dry wit, your gorgeous Bobra photos, your craftiness and of course, your friendship.
Rest In Peace.
