Sewing My Life Together

A Brief Apearance On My Own Blog

Basically, I’ve been piecing. Piecing, piecing, piecing. Slowly, colorfully, quietly….and I am loving it.

More piecing on the sewing machine.

But the other day, for inspiration and on a whim, I downloaded some clipart of cats, dogs, and flowers. I had seen some paper cards recently made from origami paper (beautiful, shiny, bright and wonderful colors)

So I downloaded some clipart from the Internet (cats, some dogs, flowers) and cut and played around with origami paper and card stock.

So, since I was determined to piece for most of the day, I only made two cards successfully (although I had several attempts!) and here they are:

Cat card 1 Cat card 2

As you perhaps can see, the first one is a birthday card for my daughter, and the second one is not yet reserved. Later this week I will try the flowers.

But now, time to make a gift for my sister-in-law who is hosting Thanksgiving!
