Odds and Ends

Yesterday when I was going through my cards looking for bits I could use for gifts tags, I can across my stash of cards my friend Rhonda has made for me over the years. I decided it was time to put a couple in frames that I had laying empty in the closet.

Isn't this sewing machine awesome? All her cards are made with a technique called Iris Folding, and they are just beautiful.

This was my birthday card this year, with the letter A in the middle surrounded by 9 patches.

So I framed them and put them up in my sewing room window (top left) as they should be on display, especially with the quilting theme.
I got 28 gift tags made from old Christmas cards to give as gifts. They were fun and easy. I have lots of scrap booking paper so will make some for us to use closer to Christmas, after my "to be mailed" gifts are done....
  My helper was once again snoring on my design floor- I always have to re-press my pieces before I sew them together....

What an adorable helper! I'm going to try to finish my cards tonight, and maybe make some tags, too. Great idea for framing such special cards.
