Not my day......

Well I was going great guns with my blog when suddenly everything just closed down so not knowing too much about computers I just left it too sort things out for itself so I was happy to see that my previous post was saved.
I was at the time trying to upload my next photos so I may have pressed the wrong button !!!!!
Anyhow I will try again .
During the past 2 weeks I have also created a padfolio and a diary cover. The rust and tan padfolio is a birthday gift for my friend Margaret these are her favourite colours. The diary cover was a request from Sheree made in purples her favourite colours of course.

Artsnthemail had a February Challenge to use only a plain coloured fabric and one colour thread to create a postcard. I chose a purple for my fabric and a white thread. After doing some machine stitching I created the 3D flowers and attatched them to my cards. I am very happy with the results.

Been Busy

I have been fairly busy over the past few weeks I really envy all you bloggers who are so diligent in blogging every day. I take so long to add to my blog (not too computer literate) I foget what I am supposed to do and then don't know what to say. My 2 daughters Danielle and Sheree are always having a laugh at me as I am always asking them questions of what to do.
So this blog is for Kylie (a scrapbooking friend of Sheree) an update she asked for when I saw her at the craft show on Saturday.
Firstly I have made 3 sewing machine mats. The bear mat is for me, the floral mat is for my friend Alice who is 84 and still enjoys her sewing and the frog mat I made smaller for my newly aquired Singer Featherweight sewing machine that I have recently purshased in Uralla a small country town whilst on our recent holiday.
