Beading Is fun

And also frustrating, I was lucky enough to attend one of Lisa Walton's beading classes, at Patchwork Pantry, On the Gold Coast. Lisa's work is just beautiful, Mine, well maybe with lots of practice one day I might make something nice at the moment its a W I P work in progress lots of half finished bits.!

I'll add photo's of some close ups so you can hopefully see the details.

Artist Trading Cards Fabric

These little cards are the first items I made with the Xpressions Embellisher, I was trying out different ways of using the machine, I had watched the video that came with it , and just got out all my bits and pieces and played. It is really interesting the different effects you can get, with different base fabrics waddings etc.

My New Toy

Well a Girl has to have New toy's too ! I bought myself a Janome xpressions Felting Machine and it is fun making up little cards etc. It has a 5 needle unit that punches fibres and threads and wool rovings etc to either make felt or to embellish . It's fun

Inchies, What is an Inchie, One of my Yahoo groups Aus-NZArt quilters had an inchie swap, we all made 7 sets of nine one inch little squares, These are the 6 sets plus my own, and one from Kathyrn, who organized the swap, displayed together, I mixed them up and love how they all look together. The theme was just BLUE . I will probably fix them to the background and put them in a frame. Aren't they cute .!!

I am involved in a swap On the QDu group, we have a Secret Sister who we made a santa sack for , now I know who I am sending to but I don't know who is sending to me !
