Long time no posts I'm afraid, that isn't to say I've been idle of course!!
As I'm back in sewing mode I thought I'd show these two pieces, I really have a fantastic collection of lace and such to use up, the first is a small wall hanging using lace both ancient and modern with some pearly embellishments, in the top left corner,  from my late aunts wedding headdress.
The second picture is a postcard I made to swap with a friend, again using all ages of lace.

Altered book cover..........

I originally bought this little book for the pages, to stamp on etc, but then as it was a good solid cover I decided to alter it and ,having removed the pages, i put a box base inside. I'm determined to use up that stash of embelishments , one down but plenty more to go!!

John Lennon mode...........

Never was a great fan of John Lennon but I think this is a great image so I used it as a journal page and a Finnabair style canvas.

Memories of Grace...........

Those of us of a 'certain age' will remember the beautiful Princess Grace of Monaco as Grace Kelly - film star - here I've included her face in a canvas i created -Finnabair style  (‎), I have boxes of embelishments saved - why do we save these things rather than use them? - so I'm making canvases. This one is A4 size.

A little bit different...........

Well different for me - I agreed to do a workshop using the Kanban 'Garden Birds' kit, the ladies made four cards and this one I managed to get a little of my style in by using hessian and twine along with kraft card.

Back to patchwork........

I love this little pin cushion, almost too good to use, the hexagons were made using a scrap of a liberty print that I got from somewhere years ago.

Just one more...............

So I love this Dragon Fly stamp and the tag of course, can't promise I won't make any more but we'll see.
This was made especially for someone who didn't understand what Art Tags are.
