Diane of Going to Pieces, the Artful Quilters Blogring Owner, has compiled a really good list of tutorials gleaned from posts in the blogring. I was emailing her with links for a couple of mine, when I realised I had never posted pictures of some of the postcards I made from the collages earlier in the year.

Here are a few of them. I spent this morning taking lots of photos so hopefully I will get them put on the ‘for sale’ section of the blog before too long. I had a deadline to do this, because I have exciting news! Sheryl, a friend who I know from my City & Guilds course, has a co-operative crafts venture upstairs in Newport Market, and she has asked me to join in with them and sell my fabric postcards! Newport Council use the first floor of the market, which is a very attractive Victorian building, to encourage artists and crafts designer/makers who want to start out in business and they have regular craft fayres. I will be spending a couple of half days a week manning the shop, which is brilliant because I was looking for a way to get out and meet more people while the kids are in school. It is called Alpha Arts and Crafts – have a look at their website and come and see me if you are in Newport visiting!

Here, as promised, are some of the postcards.

    I like the way you finished the edges with the uneven zig zag. Have fun in the co-op!
