ATCs for a Cure

Once again my ambitions exceeded my capabilities:
The fan shaped stencils were the result of my first attempt using micro beads.

The "bad hair day" ladies resulted from attempting to
needle felt their hair.
The profiles are back stitched on a cream Homespun over which I pressed Rainbow Paper in an attempt to get a lightly shaded background.

Much too hot to do anything outside after 10 am,so
I moved the sewing station down near the Air-con
and re- acquainted myself with my
Janome Xpression.

Nothing really exciting or artistic resulted,
but it was idiot relief.

I've positioned four small squares of felt
and trapped them with "wings" of wool roving. Posted by Picasa

ATCs for Cancer

"Breast and Ovarian Cancer are nasty insidious diseases that affect everyone.
We all know someone who has been diagnosed with one of these diseases.
This ATC swap is a fund raiser for the Cancer Council of NSW.
Funds raised will go directly towards research and treatment.Every cent raised will go directly to the Cancer Council"

I'm endeavouring to make a couple of series as my part of the fund raiser..........I think I need to blame my lack of inspiration and motivation on "post moving blues" and summer blah.

Nothing seems to be jelling at the moment,and that March 30 deadline is looming closer.

On another note,I have two gorgeous "white on white" CQ blocks awaiting attention.
Even with the air-con humming at a chilly 23 degree I'm not brave enough to go anywhere near the work with sweaty hands.

"Waste not........" the title given by Jeanne Kennedy to this
little beauty I received on Friday.
Jeanne explains that she made a wall hanging at a Retreat last year
and in her words,the leftovers were so pretty she had to use them!
Unfortunately my photographic editing dont do the card justice! the way she has blended the pinks with plum are truly beautiful. Posted by Picasa
