It seems ages since I posted last, and there is still not much to report! I am working on several pieces of lace, but unfortunately I cannot share for 1 reason and another.
Tatting - 14 of 30 outside motifs complete on the doily...will share after early October!
- waiting on thread for the next lot of quanti's for the 25 motif challenge.
Bobbin lace - Beds mat...only about 20 ends to sew in...new pic when done.
- Just started - hankie edging, own design in Oliver Twists thread...coming up sooooo well, I intend to enter it in the local show in October - hence no pics, sorry :(
And the quilts are also coming along...126 dingies awaiting being turned into sailboats and hexagons forming flowers at top speed!
So, something I can share is my newfound passion for ATCs...Artist Trading Cards!
What fun! You make a 3 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch card using whatever artistic medium turns you on, then trade them with fellow artists! No selling - trade only! Here are my first 4 attempts...the only way to improve is make more. Besides, it is such an interesting way to use up all the false starts and scrappy bits :)
The bottom right hand corner is winging it's way to Western Australia as I type! The rest are currently residing with it's replacement in the newly labeled album, wondering where they may find a home. If you are interested, please leave a comment! If you want more info, also please leave a comment or click the stitchety-grub logo on the right! I'm just getting started and looking forward to many new ideas, to add to the ones popping into my head during all hours :)
Don't forget to smile today...someone having a bad day just might see it and feel heaps better!
