A Bit of This and a Bit of That

Yesterday I received this postcard from Linda in WA (Aus) and isn't it fantastic.
Look at the beautiful stitching and the colours which happen to be the July TIF colours.
This is Linda's item that she made for the challenge and she put it up for grabs on her blog to the first person who asked for it and that just happened to be me.





Here is the one that I sent in return to Linda---another example of my embellishing---oh I love that machine.



Also yesterday I went to the craft show and as mentioned in the previous post I had lunch with Sharon B and Annie.
Well I couldn't have a lunch date without photos could I ---Annie on the left-Sharon on the right and me in the middle.
I only purchased 2 pieces of lace so the credit card was safe BUT I am going back today and tomorrow (because I have a 4 day pass) so you'll have to watch this space won't you.




I did do a workshop and made this tile---it was supposed to be a 1 hour class but it took me almost 3 hours--the lady let me stay and soldier on.
The trouble was people who knew me kept stopping to see what I was doing and have a chat--and the lady running the class was nice about it anyway.
I have made this for Ebony's mum for her birthday on Sunday.

Everything is beautiful....but the postcard you made has my favorite colors and I love it. And I'm sure Ebony's mother will like her gift....you did a great job on it.

All three of you gals look like you're having a good time. I bet it was non-stop chatting!

It sounds like a great show - so good to se you with your friends. Both cards are fabulous - I must stop looking or I will want an embellisher next.

Love the tile Doreen! Have fun at the rest of the craft fair.

Good idea getting a four day pass, you can enjoy the show at leisure instead of like me, running around trying to pack it all in one day. Love the embellisher postcard, great colours

Exquisite tile, however you made it. That I can't figure out. But it's beautiful.
