WOYWW- #274- Hello sunny September

Hello to all in Blogland, on this sunny September morning....not a picture of my craft desk but of my sewing desk.  As you can see I'm just as untidy here as in the craft room. LOL    This week has been tyring to finish off sewing UFOs and design a challenge for my Quilter group.  So.....
 This is the challenge, to design a fabric post card.  The theme is Sea and/or Sky and to use the 3 sequins in the design.  This is mine to show the ladies an example.   I used scrape from my painted bondaweb as the background for the sea.  Pieces of Organza laid across in 2 layers plus bits trapped in between.  then I sewed the design from the back, added the sequins and beads as bubbles.

 This is my 2nd quilt I did in class, its a disappearing nine patch.  Sorry about pic abit blurred.  I took ages finding a backing piece, plus I was scared to quilt, but bit the bullet yesterday and did it.......

this is the reserve side plus the all important label,
So that's me this week.  For all the T & C's re our great bloghop, get yourself over to the lovely Julia's.

PS, Mum is doing very well, we see the Consultant for her 3 month check up in a couple of weeks.

  6. Hi, I've linked in with WOYWW for the first time and I'm enjoying snooping around.
    A fabric post card! How beautiful! I love it!
    I'm thinking about quilting too. Artyfartyannie#45 has done some tutorial videos and I'm going to take the plunge I think.
    Thanks for sharing your workspace.
