OOO LOOK WHAT I HAVE

I received these two beauties in the post the other day from my very talented friend Debbie. She wants me to quilt them for her. ooooooooooo Yes was the answer they are going to be such fun to do. Thank you Debbie.

Here they are before the quilting – all hand done apart from the long seams which have been joined by machine…

I have them near my table so I look at them all the time to get inspired on the quilting.

FUN WITH SWAPS

Towards the end of last year [2017] I joined two Fabric Postcard swaps, as you know I love making these little gems and used to swap many years ago, so I discovered these two and joined, funnily enough, one of them [Ineke’s] group was one I actually started way way back, nice to know it is still going under the admirable administration of Ineke. So here are the cards I sent and the ones I received in return, the fun thing is as well you don’t always get the person you are sending to as your return partner, so you never know who you will get a card from until you receive it. There are lots of other postcards swapped within all three groups, I am just showing the ones I received and sent out.

It has to be said that sometimes these little gems go ‘missing’ for whatever reason it happens, we have to accept it as a fact of life, maybe someone !! takes a fancy to what they see and just keeps it OR it does actually get lost in the mail system, who knows.

Anyway here are my lovely Postcards from folk –

UKQU Postcard Group – 

AUTUMN THEME –

From the top – FROM —  Mary S — Diane L — Jo — Michelle D — Brenda W — Fiona ——— next are ones all from me to  other folk

BONFIRE NIGHT THEME –

From the top — FROM Anna H — then me to Brenda F —- one got ‘lost for a while then turned up after sending a replacement, all’s well that ends well

CHRISTMAS THEME –

INEKE’s GROUP – 

FAN THEME –

MY GROUP

SEASIDE THEME –

Tessa to me — Me to Charmiane

WOODLAND WALK THEME – compliments of Ange

Irene to me — then me to Ange

AURORA BOREALIS THEME – compliments of Marian

So far so good as they say, the next themes are already sorted for each group we just need our swap partners, then when I have received mine and my partner has received hers from me I will put them up again.

I cannot tell you what fun it is to first make this little gems then to receive them through the post, some from abroad too. If you wish to make them and join one of the groups above, let me know and I will send you the link, you have to request to be Members in all three groups.
