Recycling, Musing and Possibly Pigging Out.

The embellisher has made such a big difference to the making of Christmas cards this year. It's been great fun!

I want it to be Christmas all year really so that I can keep making them. Must start thinking Easter Eggs soon I suppose!

Am cogitating. Our Quilter's Guild is having a show in March and the theme is "recycling". Can I justify buying a big tin of Quality Streets so that I can recycle the wrappers into a work of art? Hmmmm. I'll need to ruminate on that one.


  1. Of course you can - you must learn to suffer for your art! Another delightful tree. I think you should keep making them, after all we have trees all year round and you could do trees with spring blossoms, shady trees in summer, autumn trees with fruits or golden leaves, etc. There is no need to stop!!

  2. There must be something in the water there that you Brits have the most gifted of fingers and a corner on creativity!!

    I'm tagging back to you via Rowan's Patch, Annette Emms blog and find yet another UK Diva!

    Lovely, lovely work!

  4. Hee Hee..... Love the way you think. I save and use the candy wrappers too.....I tell you one cannot throw anything away when you are a fibre artist!!!
    I loved the pin for your daughter and this little christmas tree is soooooo precious... I am hooked on the postcards and have done some journal covers, but I must spread my wings a bit more...LOL Thanks for the inspiration..

  5. Beautiful Christmas tree - like it a lot! Yes, embellishing really opens up the most spectacular ways of recycling ... ;-)
