Such a while since I blogged. Too much else happening in my life at the moment.
I have the grand children staying and though they are a delight, they take up time. Soon they will disappear back to Sydney and it will seem like a dream that they were ever here and once again I will fret because I miss so much of their growing up.

I have spent a little sewing time catching up on my ATC commitments. Here are a few more:
- a kimono postcard done with foundation piecing - gorgeous fabrics on black taffeta
- an ATC entitled Midnight Lace for a 'Different Fabrics" swap - I found this gorgeous piece of sequinned lace in Spotlight and was waiting for a chance to use it.
- two oriental fans for an "Oriental" swap. These were fun to make.

Now off to finish some butterflies, then a series titled "Checks". No ideas for this one.

This is one of my favourite sets. It is entitled "Oriental". Love the fabrics and the colours that were used. All of these cards were delightful.
Sometimes the cards are a little disappointing, but I guess that's the same with all swaps. We don't all have the same fabric and colour tastes, which is what makes life more interesting.
I am getting quite a collection of these little cards now and so far my interest is not flagging, though it can't last forever - can it?

  1. You always come up with great ideas for your ATCs, Liz. They look great! I'm missing lots of categories in the swaps that I really wanted to do, but life is just too too hectic at the moment to even consider committments like that. Hopefully, I'll be back in a few months.

  2. All your oriental post cards and quilts and fabrics are wonderful.
