Organizing and Playing

IKEA the week after Christmas is a silly idea...but, I now have more nice white boxes and magazine holders, and a few ideas for other storage.
I've been playing with new postcards so I'll have lots of samples for the class at Quilter's Dream.
I like to start with a 12 x 16 inch piece of Fast2Fuse, then fuse down lots of fabric scraps.

Once I've got a good start, I cut the postcards out, then I can add more embellishments to each card so they look different.
I don't worry about bits of white showing through after stitching. Sometimes bits of fabric might not hold, and will flip as I free motion stitch, or there might be a bit of space between scraps. That's where one of my favourite tools comes in:
Anyone who knows me, knows I can't use enough glitz in my work.

Veronica, I like the info here on how you start your post cards. I also like the tip with the gold paint pen...I have yet to start my PPCs but this week for sure!

I never thought to use my Krylon pen on fabric! I love glitz too so I just have to try this. You are probably wondering why I am commenting on posts a bit long ago. I just found your blog via the fiber ATC you traded with Susan at the Cyber Fyber Exhibition site. I am really enjoying reading your blog.
