Bye for a bit!

I should just mention that I will be away in France now for 5 weeks - no internet access (or TV or phone for that matter!), so I won't be posting anything for a while. I'm going to take my sewing machine with me though!
A bientot!

Teachers' Presents

I wanted something we could make for the children's teachers and playgroup leaders, and that wouldn't be too expensive as we were doing 12, so bought these hardbacked note books, and decorated the fronts.

Not much quilting lately... just some mini hexies. I did go to a quilting group at a nearby village, though, for the first time this week. Lowered the average age somewhat, and had a good laugh with my new-found friends!

Grandma's Birthday

A card to my Grandma, to celebrate her 91st birthday!

And the challenge over at Caardvarks is to create a birthday card. For this one I used K&Co papers, and the Stampin' Up/Sizzix alphabet to cut a layer of chipboard and paper for each letter, to add some dimension.

A couple of cards

I needed a few cards this week...A lady from church recently gave me a really nice professional pen set that had belonged to her late husband, so I drew this with them and watercoloured pencilled it in, for her.
