 Here it is, 1 March and this is the second post for this year. So much for good intentions!

It has been quite a busy year with child-minding during the school holidays and each week since schools returned.  A trip away to the south of the South Island  for a few days - thank goodness we are still able to travel within our own country during this challenging time. However, I can say that I have been making things during this time.

I have been making a few quilty things and decided recently not to begin anything new until I have completed the things that are waiting to be finished. 

 I made a couple of quilts for Christmas presents - a full sized quilt for my daughter-in-law and a wall hanging for my grandson, Max. He is always admiring a Lone Star wall hanging I have in my bedroom so I made one for him to hang on his wall.  I shall post them on my Quilting Projects page. 

Card making has taken a second place over the last couple of years as I have become more involved with patchwork. However, I still enjoy making some cards and still take a card making class monthly at the local library. 

Here is a selection of recent cards.

 This was a birthday card for my husband. I used CTMH papers and die cut the leaves and coloured them with distress oxide inks, with a final coating of UTEE (clear).

These two cars were made using distress oxide inks with multiple layers of colours and spritzed with water. Overstamped with Poppy stamp. 

This card was made with die cut flowers, leaves and wreath. I embossed the background with a CTMH embossing folder. I die cut the two layers of the Happy greeting and stamped the birthday. I used Nuvo drops for the centres of the flowers and the dots on the card.

More next week! Stay well and stay safe!
