WOYWW

 
 
Just a quick snap of my table before I start making my next LillyBo quilt.
Top left hand corner - my free machined label made to attach to my quilt.
Top centre - my jar of pearly buttons.
And then a pile of cards that I have finished.
I used lots of little snippets of lace/fabric/vintage embroidery and linen to create tiny collages for these sets of cards.
One set went off to my good friend in Yorkshire as a little birthday gift.
The rest are waiting in my sewing room to show Maxine and then maybe I will pop them in our Sisters Crafty Creations blog shop.
 Here are just a few of them!!.........
Click the picture to zoom in!
 
Today I have a very busy day planned so may not get round to checking out your desks till later in the week. Join Julia and her gang over at The Stamping Ground.
Hope you are all well and keeping cosy in this chilly weather.
Thanks for calling in - scroll down to my last post if you want more pretty stuff!!
x Jo

lots of loveliness with all those gorgeous cards. Great idea to use all the snippets and they look quite vintage too.
You are always so creatively industrious and it's great to hear there's another quilt in the pipeline too. TY.
Lots of love Jo x

What a lot of loveliness you are sharing with us. Those cards are so pretty and remind me of Victorian times (not that I was around, honestly).
You are so talented and I love seeing what you are up to.

Belated WOYWW greetings..thanks for visiting my blog too. I'm useless at anything to do with sewing - you have some very lovely things on your blog - fab collage cards too... Gill x #64

Carol said...

Lovely cards. When I go to craft fairs I am often disappointed when I see piles and piles of cards which are all very similar and seem more "manufactured" than created. Yours are so individual, I know where my pennies would go!
