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).
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.
