I have done a few more cards! I had started to put them up one at a time until I realized there were way too many since last I posted and didn't want to bore you, so here is a collage of cards I have made :) I was doing a Christmas in July challenge at the Flying Unicorn Scrapbook Store forum, in case you were wondering about the Christmas cards!
I haven't done very much work on quilts this past month, but I have done some patchwork baskets and about 5 hairbands for Aisling and the girls friends. I think all their friends will expect a headband whenever they come over for playdates now...maybe I shouldn't have started doing that! Here is a collage of the baskets I have done for thank you gifts and birthday gifts for teachers and friends and kids friends!
On this scrapbooking site I participate in now, they are doing a flower swap...in June I produced 48 flowers to swap, yikes! But I do get 48 flowers back...that is very exciting!! Here is a collage of most of mine, though I did miss out on photos of a few!
I have also worked on a few more page layouts... This is an 8 x 8 inch layout of a favorite W.B. Yeats poem, Stolen Child... made as a thank you gift for a friend...
This next layout is my favorite so far, made for another challenge...
I am having fun learning as I go!
I also did one more vintage tag with my favorite dress form stamp!
I have been having lots of card and tag making sessions with the girls friends, here are the girls and a friend sporting some tags they made...
Being here in Ireland, we miss out on the 4th of July, so in honor of the day I worked on this layout of Aine in 2008 at an Oregon 4th of July parade!
I have plans to do a few quilt blocks this month and work on a bit more of my big Rouenneries quilt...and some hand piecing and quilting...but nothing big and beautiful to show. I don't think I will ever give up my quilting, knitting (still working on those socks....slowly, I promise!) and now crocheting too, but right now I am loving my new hobby!
Dave is in the States for work but will visit my brother in Baltimore...I may have done a little (LOT!!) of shopping for some big and small items...Dave is bringing an extra suitcase for me, bless him! I also have some orders coming here to show in the future as well, lol! Looking forward to our holiday in Cornwall with friend Katy and family, there will be some sewing, and shopping as well as other fun things I am sure!
Hopefully it won't be so long between posts next time!
