She wanted to make two "new home" cards for her two friends who were moving house this weekend.
She had seen my free-machined fabric collages that I have been making recently and she fancied having a go herself. We are very alike in some ways!!
Ha! - Like a duck to water.
She had her little pics cut out and bondawebbed down in no time.
I don't suppose she has done free machining for a year or so, but I guess its like riding a bike - once you can do it you never forget.
Her finished pics were lovely and, with a little advice on mounting them, she had two lovely cards to take away.
BUT - not satisfied with that, and with the rest of the day to play, she set to and made 5 more little pics which she is hoping to frame and sell.
She remarked how brilliant crafting is as a stress buster and I can only agree. Once you get your head down creating - the stress disappears and you focus on the sheer pleasure of indulging yourself in something you love. I can recommend it. In fact M. and I think we might run courses -
" De-stress not distress!" lol
I guess they will go in the blog shop or maybe to a craft fair in the next few months.
We have such a lot of lovely things to sell at the moment so I think we need to get out and about and show folk what we have got!!
Have a great Bank Holiday Monday - its wet and miserable here so I am having a crafting day.
