My New Love and Some Little Creations


I just have to share my new love - Japanese masking (tissue) tape....so pretty, so versatile...

And a few things I have made lately:


A little rustic hanging house for my sister Kathryn (instead of a birthday card) - made from fat quarters of beautiful soft patterned fleecy fabric that I bought in Melbourne at least three years ago. It is a little "bee" hanging from the heart - my name (Deborah) means "bee" in Hebrew and Kathryn and I have an ongoing "bee" theme happening.

A card for my Mum's birthday (we have several family birthdays in June!) - note the use of Japanese tape (I used it inside as well to cover the machine stitching).

And a fabric ATC for my long term trading partner Anne Lugherini over in beautiful France (where I hope to spend some time next year).  The fabric is some that I recently painted and stamped and I have scanned the ATC atop more of the same fabric.
We've had a lovely weekend here with some rainy periods - beautiful weather for walking - we are so desperate for rain with the dams so low.  And in case anyone noticed that I wrongly labelled some photos in a recent blog post, I suddenly realised what I had done and I have now corrected them!  I have been travelling a bit in the south west with work and obviously wasn't thinking very clearly when I did that post.
