Just a brief post before I embark on a super creative day with my lovely friend Jill.
This week I had some more exciting post (in addition to the stuff I told you about in this post yesterday). I received my business cards.
I am so proud of the tiny bits of cards. Despite the fact I am not going into business or anything, its just that sometimes I find I really could do with one. Sometimes I get asked to make bits a bobs by friends and family. Or I get chatting about blogging and need something with the link on. I also need something to write prices on when I do craft fairs.
So ........ here they are ...........
Simple, but informative. I didn't spend a lot - just £2.50 for 250 so for the cost I am quite pleased with them. I also splurged on a stamp .... which I have to keep stopping myself from stamping every where .... it is really cool.
Yesterday I got to use them.
After my aunt visited from Christmas and saw my little table runner she asked me to make one for her. So I used it as an opportunity over the Christmas break to start learning some new quilting skills.
I really enjoyed making the table runner and due to immense concentration and excitement I didn't really photograph all the way through. I just quickly took a couple of snaps once finished.
Reds and greens, with lots of lines, in the ditch quilting and some fun little reindeer's (a red sequin for Rudolf's nose or course).
And here is my first proper commissioned sewing piece .... all bagged up with a business card. I felt like a true professional crafter!
It feels very fitting that after blogging about quilting for family that I point you in this direction ... a beautiful post by a beautiful blogger. Lazy Daisy talks about how she restores a quilted cushion her Grandma made. You won't be disappointed!
