Happy Wednesday to you all. Here we are at yet another fun day of the week when we can all go snooping round the world at each others creative spaces. If you want to find out more or would like to join in the fun then pop over to the Stamping Ground where Julia will have the links with all the details.
I have had some free time this week because Shell is now thankfully well enough to be able to do more herself and hasn't needed me at hers every day. I'm certain all your kind wishes have aided her speedy recovery so thank you all for caring so very much....you really are such a lovely bunch.
In my spare time this week I've been making a start on a few ideas for Christmas.....some of which of course I can't share with you just yet but I am happy to show you my start to my Christmas cards for this year....
I spent a while searching for ideas on Pinterest and decided to have a go at some free machining with red on white fabric using a few designs that I rather liked.
Here are the eight that I've decided on so far.
After free machining the designs I trimmed each of them and rather liked them mounted on the red fabric so..
I mounted them each on a piece of red fabric and have machine embroidered each of them in place.
A closer view of a couple of them so you can see the machine embroidery detail. I then trimmed the red fabric to leave a border and have now mounted them on white cards.
I plan to make prints of my 8 designs to use for the rest of my Christmas cards. I hope you've enjoyed seeing my making process.
Thanks for calling by today. Please leave me a little comment to let me know you've called and I will pop over to yours to say hello.
