Fabric Baskets

A quick blog!

I was printing out photos of 'art works' I have done in the last few months to show the girls in Perth when we catch up at the Craft Fair, what I had been doing and had to share these with you.

The 'receipe' can from a lovely tutorial from Ayumills at Pink Penguin blog. I really enjoyed making then and hope to do more for Christmas gifts. I also love the way Ayumills uses the 2" squares to make bags and pillows. Great way to use up all your scraps and off cuts.

Catch Up

As promised from my last post here are the photo's of the wonderful mail I received!

ATC trade with the lovely Carole in New Zealand. Lovely the way she has used the selvages.

Another ATC trade with Nikki Love her ATC's and the small quilts she has made. Makes the mind go at million miles all the possible ideas!

My trade with Debbi

The lovely Deb turned up for our "meeting" on Wednesday night with some fibre ribbon, netting ribbon and some narrow silver organza ribbon she had found at the local craft shop and shared her lovely loot with me. Thank Deb

And lastly the fibre postcards I have been making for the Unique Stitching Red Cross fund-raiser. Most of them have napkin bases with FME over the top. Using the Embellishing machine has really got me to 'relax' and I am alot happier doing FME work now.
