First - the good news. I found the blessed stamps. I am almost embarrassed to admit it, because you'll never guess where they were. No, go on, guess.*
Well, after all that cleaning and organising, today I got a lot of work done - more than even it looks like here. I made a block for the Block Lotto on quilting.about.com - and I almost showed a photo here - forgot that it was still sneak peek time for the November lotto - so I will show it in a few days, when it's November, and the lotto is officially opened. I also cut out the fabrics for 5 more block lotto blocks, though they aren't assembled yet (one is partly done).
Then, I finally got an idea for my confetti postcards which I like - I've gone with fireworks in honour of Bonfire Night (Guy Fawkes Day - 5th November). Whew - glad to have that sorted. I don't mind not having my cards done until right before a deadline, but I hate it when I can't come up with a decent idea.
I also worked on a set of inchies for the Inching Artists Triptych inchie challenge (running until the end of October). I edged enough backgrounds for two triptychs and a couple extras, but did this one set of inchies, called, not suprisingly, "Rose". I've had the idea of a woman called Rose running through my mind since I did the vintage woman called "Fleur" - I was originally going to call her Rose, but didn't have an "S" from that set of stickers left, so had to change horses in mid-stream... Anyway, here's my inchie Rose triptych. Tomorrow, something completely different (but no idea what yet).
And two postcards today - one from Sue W, for the letters swap - I love that she's used all the selvedge bits. I always feel slightly guilty throwing away selvedges as it seems there ought to be something you could do with them (message to self: you do not need to start saving selvedges). And the Kiss is "K is for..." - from Flischa.
*It was in the basket where I keep my (wait for it) stamps. Yes really, it was WHERE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE. In my defense, it was right at the bottom and in a totally different package than I remember, but still. Oh well, at least they are found, albeit too late for the letter postcards. At least I don't have to worry about only being able to stamp words that can be spelled with the letters S, A, R, H and N...
