ATC Friday

Some cards where I was the third person to work on the card.  I added more butterflies to this one - seemed an obvious choice. 

This one didn't have a lot of space on the card, so I just added a few words. 

And this was a buddy card, which means that only two people worked on it. The background was pretty simple, so I added a variety of geometric shapes, etc to it.

These cards were made for a swap with a theme of "winged men". I have  fondness for cards featuring things which have wings (which normally wouldn't), so I couldn't pass this one by.

These are some round robin cards where I was the second person working on the card - I received a starter, added something, then sent them to someone else to finish up. 

This one is obviously a tag, not a card - they are a little larger, so allow for a little different embellishment.

ATC Tuesday

These cards were made for a dictionary swap - using definitions of words with the letters D, E and F.   I chose the words Dickens (the definition isn't the author, but I fudged it a little), 



and fireman (though fire is on the page as well).

ATC Friday

These three sets of cards are from my own starters - I made the background and people added to them. You never really know what you are going to get when you send things out into the world - that's part of the fun!

ATC Tuesday

These cards were made for a swap where the hostess stitched six small cross stitch items and sent them to the players, who had to incorporate them into cards - it was great fun to see how different people used the items- wish I could show that here, but I can only show how I used mine...

ATC Friday

These are all round robin ATCs (and AT Coins) which I was the third person to add something to. I added quite a lot to this first set, as they came to me quite plain (though pretty):

With this set, I added less, as they were fuller to start with. 

These I wasn't really that sure what to do with, but in the end, I think they worked ok. The bird sticker is gold and shiny, but didn't scan well.

ATC Tuesday

These cards were made for a swap where the hostess sent the players some flashcards with terminology (medical and biological) on them. We had to use the word on the card, though it didn't have to be connected to the medical meaning of the word. I used some bird collages I had in my stash with interesting backgrounds and some words to make my cards.  My words were "hard"



and "none".  I also had a few others I found harder to use ("childbirth", etc).

Scrappy blocks

Actually spent a little time sewing this weekend - miracle! I made some blocks using scraps from my strip bag, combined with a wider strip of black (or neutral) down the centre. Not sure what I'm going to do with them now, but it was nice to cut scraps and sew fabric.

Remake for a friend

A friend of mine partly made this small baby quilt a few years back but never finished it. She now has an occasion to gift the quilt and asked if I'd be able to quilt it up for her (it was partly quilted with some very tiny SITD quilting) and bind it.

As I couldn't remove the previous stitching without damaging the fabric, I just left it and did a little all over loopy meander.
