I was very productive in my sewing room yesterday. I made these 4 postcards for a swap I'm in. The theme is Spring and I've called these little quilts New Growth! I used a gelatine plate monoprint that I hade over printed with a couple of linos as the background I very heavily freemotion quilted it and then stitched on the varigated bias for form stems. Then came the fun bit - gettong out the ruler and rotary cutter and slicing it up into 4 pieces! I do hope the recipients of these 4 little quilts like them.
Oh - I nearly forgot to mention the best news of all! On Friday, Sweetpea (DH) and I signed a contract to buy a new house! Yeah! I'm so excited. It is perfect - all the renos have been done - all we have to do is move in.
The new house doesn't have a sewing room! It has a studio!!!!!! I'll have room to move. I'll be able to see what I've got! I'll have a cutting table and a sewing table!
