Finished the page and more

Well I finally finished the felted page and have posted a pic to ATCs for All.I am happy with the page as it does have depth I think! then I got to playing some more with the embellishing/felting machine.I did some abstract ATCs last week that reminded me of a summer night and so I decided to try for Spring. I added organza to represent the last frosts. The card didn't photograph well with a flash though and needs daylight so I will take a pic and post tomorrow!

Almost finished felted page!!!

Here is the page after the stitching and the trimming to 8x8. I had to lose my favourite cloud though!!! I think it looks much betterwith the snow highlights. I will finish this tomorrow,I need to be paying attention when edging felt, it can be really aggravating and streeeeeetch!!

Oh Joy!

Well having finally recovered my passwords etc here I am!! I spent a great part of the Christmas holiday ( christmas when was that now??) tidying this sewing/art room. We are getting there!! Slowly!

The felting machine and I are having great fun barr the broken needles. (There is a limit to thickness fo felting!!) I was doing a journal page yesterday for a swap I am in on ATCS4ALL, and yesterday I left it alone as half of me said it was done and the other half said nono no, stitch on it as well. Today I came home and now I cannot see how on earth I though it might be finished!
Here is is so far, I am about to do some free motion stitching on the top, wish me luck!!! Getting mistaken stitches out of felt is NOT fun, and near impossible!

Oh yes, with physiotherapy (Thanks Heather and David) my wrist is fully functional!!
