These are the postcards I have made for "My Favourite Colour" postcard swap with Artsnthemail an online postcard swap I am in. These cards had to be made using only one colour. I chose to do 4 different coloured cards white, blue, green and purple.

Finally Home

Last week my CQRR finally made its way home after travelling the world and Australia for about 18 months. I am very happy to have it home and am thrilled with all the beautiful hand work of embroidery and embellishments that have been added. I think I will have it framed so it can be admired by all who visit.

Arty Farty Class.

These little items are what I have made recently at my arty farty class I attend once a month with the teacher Barbara and Kerry. We have so much fun even though I don't always utilise the arty experiments we do I enjoy playing with different textures and textiles. The little mermaid was made using hand dyed fabric and beaded. My arty box is of hand made silk paper embellished with wools, threads and beads.

Kaitlyn's Strawberries

A few months ago Kaitlyn was given some strawberry plants from her Poppy. This is a photo of her very first strawberry. She has been waiting impatiently for weeks so was very excited to see the first one. Now she enjoys each one as it is picked.

Another Christmas Stocking

This week I was determined to complete this Christmas stocking for my Grand daughter Kaitlyn. This is the 7th. stocking I have made over the past 3 years and my last for awhile.
Again I have been busy catching up on UFO's. Firstly I have made and finished a Stained Glass wallhanging. I went to a workshop with 2 friends Diana and Ann at Windsor a few months ago. I really enjoyed the workshop and am pleased with my wall hanging although not really my colours.
