Poppies again!

Its my friends birthday next week and she really loves poppies so I have had a play and made two cards.  I am not sure which one to give her yet.

Hope you are having a good weekend, its just a quick post for me as we are off to a family barbecue.

After all my sewing efforts I have come back to a bit of card making this week.  I made this circular card for the Wednesday Simon Says Challenge "Get in Shape".  I have used an old favorite wooden stamp "Petals of Beauty" from Hero Arts.  It is stamped with Pale Tomato and Red ink and then cut with some circle dies.
Hope you are having a great week.

A New Project!!

I have not posted for well over a month as I have been busy with a new project, using up all my scraps of material that i have collected over the years.  This is my first ever quilt but I so enjoyed making it that I know there will be more!  Its only a simple square design and only a lap sized quilt but I am thrilled with the finished result. Also my scrap pile is alot smaller!!

This is a back view, to save money with buying a big piece of fabric for the backing I have used a bed sheet but just added a panel of more scraps of material.

For a finishing touch I also added a label!!

I hope to find time now to visit a few of my favorite blogs!
