I loved New Zealand! What a wonderful holiday. Cruising is great, no packing and hauling luggage around but still get to go on excursions and then, of course, all the good food. I met wonderful people and had lots of fun and even took quilting workshops on the days at sea.
And to top it all off, I got to spend almost a week with family in Vancouver on my way back home.
After being away on holidays for 3 weeks and the blog for a month, it is hard to get back in the groove.
I did miss my sewing machine, so time to play. I decided to have some fun with postcards.
|FOUR cards from one little kit!|
I had made some kits (scraps) with the idea of teaching a class, so thought it might be a good idea to do a test run and see if the kits would work.
This is my first background, stitched with a decorative stitch and quilted:
Made “Swan in the Moonlight “ which turned out to be my favourite.
At this point I'm obsessed with seeing If I can squeeze one more card out of the little bag of scraps.
Tic tac toe!

I like to play with scraps and see what I can come up with. I find that limiting supplies to use in a project can really get the creative juices flowing and usually makes the results fun and interesting.

I had fun making these.
Hope you enjoy looking!
Thanks for coming.
