Africa Swap

This is a postcard I made for a swap at Artsnthemail. The theme is Africa. The group is doing a 7 continent swap and this is the first in the series. I know you can't tell from this picture, but my giraffe has a tail and mane made of yarn. I am trying to work with a different embellishment technique each time I make a set of cards. I have been getting some really terrific postcards in the mail from this group, so it has been a real pleasure to participate.

This is the Halloween card for this year. I'm just squeeking it in under the wire.

Chocolate and Cotton Candy

This is what has been keeping me busy lately. Quite a few years ago, a local quilt shop issued a challenge. The challenge was to make any quilted item using pink and brown fabrics. I made 8 blocks and called it a day, or in my case, years. This year, my local quilt guild is having their biennial quilt show. They always have a special section for set aside for challenge quilts. The theme is stars. What a golden opportunity to drag out this ufo and finish it. It still needs an inner border. I will be using the striped fabric. The outer border fabric will be a dark chocolate brown print.
