Busy day with a little sewing




As usual, a postcardy type of day - three received - Autumn Colours from Flischa, Leaves from Nancy, and Sunsey from Kandy. Also, finished up my cards for the 1910s swap - some of them I am happier with than others - the idea was to do some free-motion stitching around elements of the designs. I like the texture on the armchair in the bottom centre on, the letters on the bottom right, and the fruit on the top left. But I don't think the sky worked very well on the bottom left. Oh well. Still, overall, I think the idea worked ok. Tomorrow I hope to finish the recycle cards and maybe get started on my leaves cards - I need to paint some fabric for that, so I guess that's the first thing to do...




And here are a few bits - the yarn came from a charity shop - it's Rossini by Argyll and is a mohair/acrylic blend, which means I can't make a scarf for myself from it, but for £1 for both skeins, who cares. The brads came in a box with my new kitchen dishdrainer the other night and I forgot to share them until today when I was tidying up my sewing table...

Hi Kate,
The postcards are so nice. The leaves are in the midst of changing colour here in Northern Qu├ębec...lots of nice colours for inspiration. I really do like your ATC cards! Sheesh...we can't see the sewing ;) and I'm sure that they only reveal artistic talent! I have a question. Is it a Saturday there that you receive mail delivery? If so, wow! Nice government.

Later
Peggy
