Bargello done....

This quilt has taken me such a long time to make. It was started in a twisted bargello workshop ( I can't remember the exact date so it is ages ago) I have worked on it at craft on a tuesday night with our UFO/ PHD group. ( I think that the ladies at craft will also be glad to see the end of it also)
So thanks to the UFO/PHD ladies it is finished!!

Not sure why the text at the top of the page is all underlined. (crazy computer!!)

Hello to you all in Blogland. We have now got a Big Shot machine to create with!! Come this Saturday and have a go too!!

These are a few cards created so far using the BIG SHOT. Would love to add your creation to this blog.

One of the texture plate designs.

Love the circles!! I find it very hard to cut circles so this will make it a breeze now!!

and I had to make an orange one especially for Brooke!!

We hope that you can make it this Saturday to Studio 6 and craft with us!!

Gift Card Idea!!

Here's an easy idea....create a pocket onto your card to place a gift card.
Now who wouldn't love to receive one of these. I will be making these for those hard to buy for nephews in our family.(teenage boys!!) I cranked up the sewing machine to make the pocket on the card. I had lot's of little scraps of Christmas papers leftover from making my Christmas cards and decided to use some of them up with this quick idea. Attach a sticker and embellish!!

Here's a close up.

Since we have been getting lot's of rain....K decided that it would be a good idea to have a mud bath.... needless to say she now has glowing skin!!
