A new toy!!
I promised a picture of the lovely Biscornu Autumn pincushion that I won in Judy's giveaway, ('cjstitchingandblooms' in my links) and here it is courtesy of my NEW CAMERA, my new handbag friendly camera indeed! Anyway the pincushion is lovely, about 5 1/2 inches across,tweed fabric decorated with fabric, felt and stitching, it will take pride of place on my sewing table. The other pic is the Thanksgiving card I've just made for the November 'Hugz from the Heart' swap, and did I struggle, perhaps because we're not used to cards for this theme, anyway I'm pleased with the result. I printed off the background paper, stamped and watercoloured the church image, the leaves are spellbinder dies that I cut and embossed on my cuttlebug and coloured with distress inks, under the leaves is a paper flourish that I actually cut out on my Cricut - used at last!!
