A new postcard... and sewing progress.....


I recently took part in a postcard swap hosted by Sheila..... and today my card arrived all the way from Lin in France....

This autumn crazy patch has stamped leaves and so beautifully stitched in gold.... its lovely


Lin does amazing art work with her fabric... I love seeing what she is doing and full of admiration with her lovely ideas...  Thank youso much Lin... a lovely addition to my postcards...

The theme was Autumn and I used some autumny coloured batik fabric and added some of my quilting on old doily flowers...


(picture taken from Lin's blog as I forgot to take a picture!!)

I have done the stitchery for the next side of my Mouse Pincushion....


... and actually put in a zip in the Princess's outfit..... (Christine gave me some 'pearls' to go with it - well a princess has to have pearls doesn't she?)



... and placed the label on the Princess's quilt...


Righto, Gotto Go.... I'm almost done with my crochet edging on my blankie...... sudden cool spell so it has been nice to have it over my knee whilst working on it
