Sgt. Pepper & a joint Sixtieth birthday
Last night and today we celebrated my mum and her twin brother’s 60th birthday’s, with close friends and family, accompanied by team effort of delicious home-made food and copious amounts of drink. I wanted to make a personal & memorable gift for my lovely mum, and after cogitaiting and scratching my head for a while, I came up with this…
A lifelong Beatles fan, I decided to have a go at adapting the iconic Sgt Peppers album cover by Sir Peter Blake, with a few new characters from our family. I then sent it of to Canvas Dezign, a company who print your photo’s onto canvas, ready to hang on the wall. They did a really great job, & I’m pleased to say it was a total hit with my mum, and the rest of the family. I hope Sir Peter Blake wouldn’t object to this adaption of his design, as it made a little mum very happy!
This is one of my all time favourite photo’s of me and my lovely mum, circa 1979. This cute knitted bonnet, and top combo, may well have been an early trigger for my love of all things knitted, I reckon! Happy 60th mum! Thanks for everything you do for me and the rest of the family, and for being the loveliest mum I could wish for.
