Sew what!

 Yeah, I know that was a lame title. 
I'm blaming the allergy medicine.
I've been sewing like crazy along with making cards. A friend of mine got a table at her kids school Holiday fundraiser. She asked me if I'd want to send her anything to sell. I'm trying to make items that are lightweight and small as I'll be mailing these to her. These little patchwork tissue packs seem to fit the bill.
I have a few other ideas but one 
thing at a time.

Making cards

Ok...so the thumb still hurts but I can't seem to 
not use it. 
No matter what it is in life...I use that thumb. 

So I might as well make some cards...right?

I made a lot of cards...
they are like chips...bet you can't eat just one...er...make just one.

I've had a couple people ask me lately about my photo cards for the holidays.  Gifts and such I'd assume.

Which got me thinking...I should really sit down and make a bunch with all the photos I already have!

I also made a few more fabric collage cards. 
I really enjoy making these. 
They are what you might call a labor of love.

Swap Tea

I confess...this post is scheduled. 
I am enjoying some late evening tea in my cute, "new to me' chickie mug, while writing this post. Tomorrow...well today as you are reading this is just too busy for ...much like so many Tuesdays. 
Why is it that Tuesday is the most filled day on my calendar?? ...Frustrating. 

I did want to share some fun mail I picked up the other day though.
I got my color swap pages from Dianne. Fantastic pages.
 Love this watercolor bird.
I've been ito watercolors myself these days.

 Fun fabrics and trim...love it!

A combo of watercolors, fabric and stitching...
truly calling my name. 

 Doodles that I envy...

Plus some fun tags...

Feel free t drop by Kimmies blog today for the other Tea Tuesday posts...I know I will be later.

Sneak peeks

I can't show all of these pages but I really want to! They aren't even finished and likely won't 
be for a while. 
I injured my thumb on my right hand (dominant hand) in some way a couple of days ago, so I keep having to stop working on basically anything and ice it frequently. 
Oh, the frustration.

Pages have landed in Cyprus

I've been anxiously awaiting confirmation that the package I sent to Cath in Cyprus had arrived safely.  I was getting very worried even though the post office assured me that things can get tied up in customs from time to time. 

Cath is another member of the colors swap I've been particpating in over the last few months.

Her colors were yellow and black. Not my usual fair but that's where the challenge lies. 

 The photos are not the best...I can't remember why anymore but alas...once they are sent off there isn't much chance for retakes.


 This one is a kalidescope that I made from 
a photo of a marigold.

These black eyed susans are from my in-laws garden.
Thanks to Elizabeth 
for the awesome yellow handmade paper!!

My new toy

Well...new to me. 
Found her at a garage sale. She needs a bit of cleaning but works!

It's also come to my attention that blogger once again is having issues with embedded comments. For the time being I've changed mine back to the old pop-up style.
Off to a church rummage sale this morning...
wish me luck!

Go pink...

...for Breast Cancer awareness.
And yes, it's permanent.
We'll see what the rest of the family thinks as they come home.
What do you think?

Sewing tea

I've been busy sewing again. This time making more greeting cards.While running a few errands this morning I stopped at the co-op for a few essentials and a little indulgence. I really love this fermented tea and since it's going to be really warm again today, it seemed like a good choice.

Stop by Kimmies blog, art in red wagons, for the other Tea Tuesday posts.

Also just a little teaser...tomorrow I'm doing something special for Breast Cancer awareness month. My mom is a 43 year survivor. I hope it turns out like the picture in my head. I'll be sure to take a picture when its done.

Walercolor Haiku

While watching my new obsession on Netflix...Mad Men...I painted this little fall scene.

I added the Haiku this morning.

What do you think?
