ACT, Fabric Postcard and Quilty

Hi, I'm back after such a long time away from here.  I've had major refurbishment to my house which meant packing everything away.  Things are just beginning to come out of boxes and put into the right place.  We're not quite finished as there are still some things to finish......but the result is lovely.  I have a new sewing room.....a bit small but hey, I've come to realise that I have too much fabric and must use it up before I get any more!!

Here's my sewing room which is in the small bedroom.  There are still some shelves to put up for all my books and nick nacks.

The builders hid my sewing stuff so very well that it was hard for me to find the bits I needed to make postcards and ACT's.  I had to go out and buy some!!

Here's the fabric postcard I made for Tessa on the Popular Patchwork Forum.  The theme was two syllables so I chose Pumpkin.

At the same time on the Popular Patchwork Forum there is an ACT swap and the theme is Wings.....and this is what I did for Art Nouveau bird 

The Quilty is another swap on the Forum and the theme is a poem that you liked.  I chose the Owl and the Pussycat to send to Karen.  The Quilty was 8" square

That's all folks...........til the next time happy quilting
