lily of the valley

a few years back I bought some lily of the valley diecuts from my visit to the NEC, I know it has been a while as I didnt go the last few times!!!

so again using up papers I also have had in stash for a while, not sure what brand of papers most the time

this is craftwork cards backing paper

forgotten the make but its using double printed paper (hate cutting into this)

paper came with one of the magazines 

again paper from a magazine

pampered pets

Going through my stash and thought I would use up some things that have been there for ages!!!

have been putting off using this pampered pet range as I just couldnt think what to do with it, have done all different cards, there are more but havent taken photos yet.  Think it works well with the chocolate brown best and I also think curving the corners is nicest too

thanks for looking x

crazy quilting

I had seen some ideas of crazy quilting and was dying to have a go, so when I saw a WI competition I thought I could encorporate some.  I have made a folio cover for our secretary.  I made a patchwork base using some squares I ordered off ebay a long time ago and added all kinds of things, including machine and hand stitching.

I am quite pleased with it but wish I had made the piece longer so it fitted the folder better


i stitched the 2 S's on some muslin, (our WI is called severn sisters)


thanks for looking xx
