I NEED MORE HOURS IN A DAY

I just don't understand where it all goes.....

Fabric Postcards made for missing links!!!!



and more..



and more..



TOY card for swap, now don't get offended, these were the toys
I had when I was a girl, and I loved them,
I still do....
Problem?



For my lovely Zappers...
and others...



What a mess...



Which machine shall I use today?



AHA, so that is where my time goes....
all good fun.

Do you remember I entered the
PAY IT FORWARD swap...
here are the gifts I made for the three ladies...

Using the method of Trapunto by Geta, I made each a bag.
this is the front or the back...



I then put their Initial on the Back - or the Front!!
this is for Ros...



for Maggi...



for Ann...



I was very pleased with how they turned out...
I love doing this trapunto, thank you Geta

Lovely work, Jan!
I have got my ebook from Geta now and organised all the materials so that DD3 is "giving" me it all for xmas! If only she can give me the time to do it too!

Your postcards are so creative! And your handbags are gorgeous! As for your work area, if I posted pix of mine, we'd have trouble telling them apart! "A messy desk is a sign of a creative mind!"
