I found this today

I was clearing out my cupboard today and came upon this embroidery. I had forgotten all about it and I think I must have done it when I was still at school or just after leaving (1972 or 1973). I designed it myself and was going to make it into a shoulder bag and do vaguely remember embroidering a long strap but it is missing. There are lots of different embroidery stitches, most of which I have forgotten. The centre is a mass of French knots and beads.

I don't think it looks too bad really....

New Baby Cards

These are teabag folded cards made with some sheets I have designed to compliment my teabag paper designs. I have to say that I am quite pleased with them. On these new sheets there will be 2 backgrounds and 16 teabag papers, enough to make 2 cards.

I've been experimenting
with backgrounds for my teabag tiles
and this is the first ones I came up with. The St Patrick's Day card was done for a challenge on Circle of Crafters forum and the other was just made for fun. The fold on the left card is just the simple triangular fold and the one on the right is called Heather's Matches fold which is a lot of fun to do.
