Hand Made Cards

Making cards and scrapbooking comes and goes in my life, depending whether I have the time and / or space to have the supplies out, or time to get them out.  It's nice to be able to make a last-minute card amd I thought I'd show you a couple simple cards that were just finished.

Now if I'd had a little more time, it would have been nice to either add more layers, or ink the edges.

Airplanes for Dad

Some airplane fabric has been hiding in my stash for a few years, while I tried to decide the best way to turn it into a quilt for my dad.  I decided I'd better make something made that he could use, have around him all the time, was washable by anyone, and finished in time for me to take it to him for his 92nd birthday.  Since I had two fabrics with airplanes, one with a white background and the other with black background, a simple block would showcase them best, but sashing and a touch of red would give it a little spark of color.

He loves the quilt!  Told me all about the airplanes, if he had flown that type or had a friend that had had one.  He even complained some were not "exactly" correct, and of course I had to keep reminding him the planes were artwork that may have been drawn and colored by someone who might not have known anything about them. Unlike the real thing, you can only fit so much detail on a tiny plane that is printed on fabic :-)

Remember when

I made this fabric:

well, I finally made it into an over-sized purse / bag that can hold quite a bit!
