Tiddly Bits

Do you remember that I made a 'fabric' background a few weeks (or was it months?) ago?

It was felt / fusible / scraps, which I sliced into six pieces so that I could hand sew using thread 'scraps' as mindless sewing.

I've finally finished them!  They are now ready to be used as card 'toppers' whenever I need them. 

Time to devise some more mindless and portable sewing, ready for a summer of sitting somewhere whilst the girls race around!
 I have also been working on my Love Entwined (but haven't taken any pics yet) - it's been a week for hand sewing!

Although I thought that I'd hand sew these applique cards, in the end I ran out of 'hand power' so got the machine to help.  They aren't the most complex of cards, but I enjoyed making them.

 Do you recognise the birds from the spring time ornaments I was making?  I can see that I might use these for more cards, although I should try and get a bit more imaginative with the background stitching!
So no big projects, all tiddly bits of this and that.  Enough to keep me ticking over whilst I plan other quilts in my head, and plan to set time aside for a bit of C&G work too.


  1. Love the stitching on the cards. I usually have done hexies as my hand stitching project, I have various sizes in the sizzix dies if you want papers / fabrics cut xxxx

  2. I love these cards/card toppers - what a great idea!

  3. Hiya plummy, thankyou for reading me and I think a little cuff book would be perfect for mindless sewing, and soo portable, hugs tina
