Laura and I were so happy to not have to shop yesterday. She's going out again Sunday to finish her shopping while Ian and I watch football. I finished mine off yesterday with some online ordering. I should be good for fall/winter clothes for a couple of years.
Laceflower left a comment yesterday about having to shop recently because of her weight loss (congrats!) and that she even made the decision to dress better at home. I just had to laugh. Because I don't know what I'm getting into every day my "home wear" looks pretty much like "homeless wear". It seems that no matter what I wear every day it gets messed up with paint, dye, oil, mastic, grout or gets cut while I'm sewing.
Yesterday, in our "homeless wear", Laura and I were happy to stick around the sewing room. She's busy finishing up 2 more sets of postcards before she leaves Tuesday. The gift boxes and stocking are made from scraps of her ornament cards. The stars are cut from the Accuquilt Go star die.
I used my new dimensional paints to decorate the trees on my cards.
While those dried I started trying out some design ideas for the next 2 sets of cards. I'm trying for a Grinch theme for one and maybe stockings or a snowman for the others.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
