Cat as trophy ?

Today was nearly a no-sew day!
But I managed to squeeze this one through this afternoon----------which gives me an excuse to go out tomorrow and purchase more Vlisoflex;
I also wish to visit a craft store and see whether I really need a bone folder.or whether I can live without it Posted by Picasa

In memory of Greg

The Glasshouse Mountains

Because of a few queries of what/where are the Glasshouse mountains that I attempted to portray in fabric postcards,I include this link so you can see for yourself why I'm so fascinated by them.
There are two places in Queensland where my spirit feels "at home"...........this area----and parts of the western side of Moreton Island where you have bush down to the edge of the white,squeaky beach sand and the clearest,greenest water to swim in (with dolphins if you're lucky)

Post cards

Spent this afternoon "playing" with construction of fibre post cards:another "thing" that is new to me.
I ended up with six,that only require edge finish and printing on back.
Nothing startling,but I can now see how/why people do them in batches of 4 to 6,much the same.
I was attempting some of our local Glasshouse Mountains,but did not employ Vicky's hints "Taken for granite" I mentioned the other day......maybe tomorrow!
But at least I've made a start!!

Where do you live?
I may have to do a bit of fiddling here........
(What's new I hear you ask?)
I was getting frustrated that I couldn't find a Frappr map through ChainofHearts to show roughly where I lived,so I have started a KenmaursCorner link to Frapper in the hopes I can discover where some of my online friends live.
"IF" the link works,please find your own map and leave a message.

On another note,I completed the fez for Martyn.....hope it fits OK.
Have some more ideas for my Fibre Art Journal;
MUST attack that February art quilt-----
Have drawn up "maps" for a couple of postcards,so better get to them I 'spose.

p.s. DON'T ask me WHY,but when I Link to an external,you need to click on the blog heading to get there

Through the Looking-glass

Reacting to a suggestion from another member of Fabric Art Journals
I decided to use "The Adventures of Alice through the looking-glass"as a theme for my first Fabric Art Journal,
only it will be MY version of adventures in a stitching world gone crazy.........
after all, I am a passionate Crazy Quilter!
So the pic is the bare bones of page one:
Gazing at the mirror and preparing to go "through"----

I'm learning already,that if I want to complete my journal I'll need to switch from handwork to machine work. Posted by Picasa
