Row houses

Once again, I don't seem to be able to make just the required number of things for a swap, and went a bit over the top with the row house swap. I love making house shaped cards, so really enjoyed doing these.

Art qulits

For a swap using fabric paper, I decided to make an art quilt. While I was at it I thought I might as well make three. One of my daughters went off with one, which left me with the two turquoise ones. The backgrounds are made from baby wipes which I had used to clean my stamps. They went nowhere near my new grandson, honest. The fabric paper birds and squares were then sewn on with my sewing machine, or attached with beads. Some beads were also added to the finished quilt.

Alice board bag

A caravan weekend in the Cotswolds with Jan and Maureen, not only produced a lot of laughter, but some crafting as well. Maureen had bought some board bags, and I decide to make mine an Alice in Wonderland one. I collaged a napkin on as the main background, and then added images of Alice and chums on top of that. There are some shrink plastic images as well. This is my forth Alice project, so I might have got it out of my system now.
The photographs are not very good.

Heat it up ATC's

I've been having fun painting, and heating up various fabrics to make some ATCs. They are all backed with pelmet vilene, which I painted. Then fabrics like tyvek, lutrador, organza, and nappy liners were all painted, and added to the vilene, machine embroidered, and heated with the heat gun, until they either melted, warped or holed. Some of them have silk and angellina fibres under the organza to give a bit of sparkle.
