Making more botanical print cards and a quilt top

The week seems to have just slipped by, where did it go, what did I do with that time? I did make a quilt top out of a pack of 10" squares, I think I'll also add a border to it.

This was probably not my best use of time, but hey, a girl has to just sit and sew sometimes. I have no plan for this, it might end up as a donation quilt.

I turned some more botanical prints into cards and went through the pile and found more that will work. I've got about 40 made, I think I'm about out of envelopes so I'll have to stop soon go shopping.

Botanical printed cards

Thank you to all who wished me good sales at the Art and Craft show, I've got 2 more weeks to go . The dates of the show are November 16 and 17.

This week I gathered up all the botanical prints that had been done on paper and made cards out of them. Here is a sampling.
I'm very pleased with how they came out and I finally found a use for all the prints. I originally did on paper because that's what I had instructions for, but since I normally play with fabric I experimented and found out what works on fabric. I even had the card stock and envelopes, so another project done using what's on hand.
