Spring Postcards

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!
