NOW FOR SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT

It’s been a ridiculously long time that I’ve been away from this blog, but I’m going to give it another go. I’m still loving collage art, but I’ve also started doing some stitching. At the moment, I’m taking part in textile artist Anne Brooke’s #52tagshannemade challenge, which has been fun. Each week, Anne posts a theme as a prompt and we interpret it in our own way using fabric and notions that we already have at hand. And I have loads, mostly from my two grandmothers! These are my first 10 pieces.

FABRIC BITS NOTE CARDS

Going through my bins of fabric today, it occurred to me that sewing together some little scrappy bits and attaching them to card stock would make cute note cards.  And writing a few encouraging words, or a funny Mae West quote (“too much of a good thing is wonderful”), would give them some more interest.  The text from a book on the green linen fabric just struck my funny bone and could certainly be used to describe me too many times!
