Round robin ATC Tuesday


This was a fun set of cards to work on - although the central image was large, I could see lots of possibilities for adding to the card - sometimes it's hard when the central image is so prominent.




These also were fun - much less prescriptive because of all the space to work with, and I actually happened to have some mustache stickers. Not sure why, lol.

Round robin Friday

Two sets of round robin cards here where I was the second player to work on the card - I received a starter, added something, and then sent it along to someone else to finish. This first set is a "coin" - these are 2.5" in diameter.

Round Robin Tuesday - ATCoins


Here are another couple of sets of round robin cards, except these are coins - 2.5" in diameter.  Again, I was the second person to work on the card, and someone else finished it off. This one was quite tricky as the card was pretty full to start with. 




This one had a lot more space to work in, so it was easier to find something to add.

ATC Friday


Two sets of round robin cards where I was the second person to work on the card - I received something as a starter, and then added a little and passed it on. The finished card is above, and the other two stages below. 




With this one, I somehow managed to neglect to scan it after my own additions, but I can tell you that I added the spiderweb washi tape and the word "boo".

Cross Stitch Update - Finished!


Well, this needs ironing, obviously, but the stitching is done. It's astonishing how quickly you can actually finish something when you spend time working on it...  I've got a new piece which has a Christmas theme, which I'm actually going to start now, but I do also want to carry on working on another piece in progress, The Alice in Wonderland piece.  I might alternate one week on and one week off, or might work on both of them through a week, not really sure. Guess it will depend on what catches my fancy. But I'm definitely going to make a point to stitch at least a little almost every night. Watch this space.

Round Robin Tuesday


Here are three sets of ATCs where I started the card and two other people worked on them.  A variety of themes, by a variety of artists.

Scrappy Centre


This is (or will be) another Linus top, eventually - some scrappy blocks put together in alternating direction, which will eventually get a border around it.  This coming week I am back to work (and am literally at work part of the time), so there won't be as much sewing, but hopefully I'll be able to get back to it quite soon!

Another Linus Top


This one has some Aladdin or Arabian Nights style fabric for the border - once again, I got the border fabric from the Project Linus coordinator's Linus stash, specifically for bordering donation quilts.

Top with Stripy Border


Here's another little top for Project Linus, with a cool stripey border.

Another Linus Quilt Top


Here's another one - this is a mix of scrappy blocks and single-fabric blocks, with a border of the same fabric that's in the blocks. This was a fabric given to me ages ago by the Project Linus coordinator to use in tops and borders.

Cross Stitch Update


So, I've actually been doing a bit of cross-stitch lately - I have worked on this piece a bit over the past year or so, but only once or twice a month, rather than almost nightly. Lately, I've been trying to be better about stitching in the evening while watching telly rather than just being on my phone - it's tempting, especially when one is tired, to just sit and veg. Anyway, this piece is nearly done - there's a bit of the left border to do, then the bottom left corner of that centre bit and another planter like the one on the right. And a few little bits, like there is a spacer symbol of some sort between the states' names. But it shouldn't take much longer to finish, especially if I keep up the nightly work. 

Here's the last photo I can find of it - but I've certainly added quite a bit since this photo was taken, before this week - for instance, most of the state names have been done for quite a while.

Round Robin Tuesday


These three sets of round robin Artist Trading Cards were all started by me, then worked on by two others. It's fun to see what direction they go in!
