Trading Cards

I've got so much on the go at the moment
I don't know what to tackle first.
I need a trading card for next week but didn't have any inspiration....
I wanted it to be "me"
but quick.

This technique needed to be done as a pair.

What do you think?

I should trim them to the exact size but I like the messy edges.

Don't you love surprises?

 Do you remember I went to Sydney a couple of weeks ago?
I gave my niece this quilt.
No reason
except that I thought she would give it a nice home.

But guess what?

I came home and found these beautiful flowers on my front doorstep!
And another thing....
I just love when things come in lots of cellophane.
I love cellophane!

And I'm not going to stop

I have 2 teapots that live on my bench
so I had to make at least one more..

I thought this one needed just a bit more

Maybe I should put some on ebay?

I've lost count

Yes. I have made another tea cosy.
For Summer.

On reflection
I quite like it.

The weather today is beautiful.
We haven't had many of those so far this Spring.

It made me want to do something bright!

These pieces are leftovers from some applique blocks.
I am cutting the flowers free hand.
Stay tuned to see what I'm making.....

A break

I am having a lovely break in Sydney for a couple of days.

Yesterday I scanned the blogosphere looking for knitting shops in the city.


Morris and Sons in George St.

I spent a couple of hours browsing their books looking for cardigan patterns.

Well worth it!

And then I had a little shop...the Strand Arcade.

And visited my cousin in her city office.



What a view!
