Received this from sis, Mary Adkins, from a group for ATC Asian swap. It is soooooo pretty sissy, love the purple them you did with them and the beads and butterfly just added more dimension to the atc. thank you so much.
Received these two pretty Victorian ATC from another group from Mary Adkins and NoeLani Flanagan from another group. I have received many different themes for this theme and they are just so pretty. thank you so much both of you.
Received this Victorian PC from Donna M from my group..lovely machine embroidery card, thank you so much.
Received this from Donna M from my group for a jewelry swap. I love bold jewelry and just loved it. thank you so much Donna. It was a fun swap to do.
I have post all these here instead of where I usually do, to lazy to go and find the right place for them..lol
Getting Christmas fabric and fibers out to really get ahead of myself and make family and friends their cards..I hate to disappoint anyone this year at Christmas as they do look forward to these fabric cards. I started this before joining any groups in 2005 but had been making the ones that you mail in envelopes with batting in the middle..2004..so been at it and have done just about every technique to a card. lol
I have sent hundreds of people their first fabric post card and have been told they still have them displayed. I remember receiving my first card. The joy in my heart was overfilled..

I satin stitch the whole thing. Again it is a 10 by 10
This is what Peggy S, who got carried away, she added the tree, waterways, the cat and the squirrel and could have added more..lol Raven E-added her name sake the Raven, Chris P-added a waterpaper throw over the railings, and Laura C -added Adirondack chair . I just love it. Now I will add my own things to it. I am going to put a bench on the left side, with a throw-knitted or crocheted, an umbrella just barely on the right side. I will also add pots of flowers around. When done with this I will add borders and than add my sliding glass doors as it is how I see my deck. A lot of work.
I could not finished my other quilt as my left hand just won't let me machine quilt or bead right now..so it will not be FINISHED, blahhhhhh...lol I guess I have done enough for today with my hand. At least I finished one, my Mom's mini quilt.
The bottom is how I received it when it was return to me. I liked everything but the black tree. It just took away the free spirit of life and flow. When you looked at the quilt all you saw first was the tree.
The above quilt I took 5 different colors of chalk and change the color of the tree. Than to add more life to it, I added 3 different sizes of leaves..sometimes when I see others trees with leaves, the leaves are all the same size..needs perspective..
Jenny W received my quilt that was just the Rainbow Hair Goddess and she added the metallic threads in the hair. Than Karen A added the wonderful blue fabrics to add to the freedom of this quilt. Chris P, added the tree, the ground and the stars and Raven E added the pot of gold with stars and hearts sequins. I finished off the other sequins yesterday. I also added gold sequins and beads to the pot of gold .
Today I did the borders and binding. I know you are saying purple borders..well yes. I have tried every color for the borders and binding and this is what I like..lol it brings out the purple in her hair anyway.
My problem now is that I am not sure how I am going to machine quilt it. I might just use clear crystals beads for the quilting part...I will put it in here when completely done.
This is how I received my quilt. the above is what it will look like today.
Not sure if she use horizontal or vertical. It is up to her. Her birthday in Sunday, Oct 14, (she reminds every one that her and Roger Moore were born on the same day and that it is also President Eisenhower too) and she will be 79. This is the other half of her birthday, I made a mistake and told I had something really pretty for her birthday and you do not get away with that so I had to give it her early..she wouldn't leave me alone till I did..lol she does not surprises if you happen to open your big mouth like I did, lol This the second part and do not know about it.. Remember that huge dogwood quilt that I started for awhile back and she did not like it as it reminder of a state..lol so I took it all apart and redid it...
This is what I am doing lately, finishing up some well deserve UFO, Unfinished Quilts. I am working now on my Rainbow Goddess I did in a round robin and had to redo some of what was there as , well you see tomorrow, I plan on putting the borders and binding on it. Not sure how to machine quilt it as with a round robin when sequins or beads are added it is hard to quilt by machine..I am not a hand quilter..so might just do some simple designs or use beading as my source of quilting it, to keep in tact.
Had my left side of my teeth done yesterday and got another buzz, no more. Monday I go in to have them polish, I will for sure have some pearly whites to smile with..lol Than my dentist will fill the 3 little cavities on the 25th and Nov 1st..I am just glad I got to save my teeth..all of them..
I have had my hand on a brace for over a week. I am not wearing it now as it interferes with my sewing machine and typing on this key board, all kinds of screens come up and might do something wrong and than no computer and we can't do that now can we..I can not live without one, well, I could but you would not to be around here either..lol totally a b----...lol
