Seasons Greeting - LOTV

For this card I went back to a sweet LOTV image to colour with my Prisma pencils.  I'm still trying to complete my card list with individual designs....I think that might have to change though!

I must say, it was relaxing to just sit and colour after a busy of day of baking!!!  Oh and then I thought I'd cut the image by hand to frame it as above........Falalalala.


I've been busy with my sewing needle this year too (in case you wondered why I'm not posting more cards:) )

I joined a sewing group close by and have been learning the correct techniques for Patchwork and Quilting.............I've made lots of quilts in the past, but it's been good to go back to basics and learn more about colour and fabric choices.
My first completed project was a table runner but an ongoing project has been an embroidered sewing bag, big enough to carry all my quilting projects...........Would you like to see it completed.....

and the back of the bag looks like this

I'm pretty pleased about how this turned out. I chose stronger colours than I would have in the past.....still pinks and greens but no peach in there anywhere LOL

Hope you're keeping on track!
