Sherwood Stitchers Challenge

The second of four postcards - used some selvedges for the background - quite enjoying the simplicity of making postcards at the moment - but I do have to get on to bigger UFOs and projects.

HofM shaved too

 HofM has had his beard for over 3 years & was challenged to have it shaved off.
$210.00 raised for the cause & it was off - (No. 3 son in the background before the deed was done.)

Shave for a Cure

 No: 3 son is on the right - these 3 had the longest hair that went today.
 All those year of growing the dreads - I'm pleased they'e gone.
 The plaits & the dreads are going to a wigmaker - so put to good use.

 All that weight - almost all gone.
Gone & over $3000.00 raised for Luekemia Foundation - through pledges & today's efforts.

Inspiration page

Here is the page that will be my source of inspiration for the 4 postcards.  I tried to keep it as simple as possible.

Sherwood Stitchers Challenge

I am almost overwhelmed with Challenges at the moment.  We selected a page from a magazine & had to take inspiration from that page to make something - didn't matter what.  My page (will post that next time) had 4 sections to it & I'm making 4 postcards.  When you see the page - you'll be able to work out which part has inspired this PC.

WIP - first draft

All these circles were bought at a garage sale - think the previous owner was going to make lots of suffolk puffs (yo-yos).  I fused them & am trying to work out a design - not sure - still thinking.
