The weather forecaster told us we were going to have showers and sunshine. Well, we've got the sunshine every now and then, but interspersed with what I'd call downpours rather than showers. And it's turned chilly. Autumn is definitely here now. So it's a good time to get stuck into making cards and sewing. I've just finished making our Christmas cards for this year - these are two of the designs, but the third didn't photograph well, so I'll have another go.

I've also made a birthday card and a new home card. I always enjoy papercrafting when I get down to it, but it entails getting so much stuff out that I don't do it as often as I'd like.

As to sewing, well I've not been doing much machining, but I have been doing lots of hand sewing, catching up on BOMs and starting on making a Christmas cushion using a pattern I won from Lynette Anderson.

This is the fabric I bought the other day, all very bright and modern looking, rather different from my usual purchases, but it all just jumped out at me and said 'buy me', so I'm sure there's a plan for it hidden somewhere in the depths of my brain, I just need to dig deep and find it.

Love the cards...pretty patterns on the fabric....Leon bought me a Cricut (paper cutting machine) several weeks ago...if you are not familiar with it -check it out on the internet..anyway I am back to trying to think of ways to be creative with it.

I love the fabric - looking forward to see what it turns into, especially as it is different from your usual style. The cards look so complicated - it really is great to receive a handmade card. I'm sure your recipients will appreciate them.

Love the cards too. Naughty fabric jumping out at you like. How do you manage the temptation when it does that.
