I have finished my Funky Chick cushion cover. I bought the fabrics from Westpoint,, and thought they went very well with the colours of the stitchery. My DH actually helped me with the placing of squares. The fabrics are "Treasures Of The East", by Hoffman California International Fabrics.

In a postcard swap with an online group, we had to make a card with the theme of 'modern flowers'. I received the following card from Angela! It is a blue poppy thread painted from a photo. I must say that this photo does not do the card justice.
The next card is the one I made for my swap partner, Tessa.
The flowers are 3D,,and I have a way to go before I can thread paint like Angela!!


  1. I love your 'Funky Chick' Is the design from Doodle Stitching? X

  2. your funky chicken turned out great.

  3. Love the crazy quilty stuff you bought at the show, and photographed on your last posting...look forward to seeing what you make with them.

    What a fabulous postcard you received...I would love to be able to make something like that.

    And last, but not least, I love your Funky Bird...and the fabric you chose. I would have a hard time declaring you or Margaret "The Winner" - LOL :)

  4. hi Caz Loving the post cards I used to be an avid swapper but it got a bit to much so I stopped. Do you like sticheris? :)

  5. Judi,, sorry I didn't see your message before now. I think the pattern came from BustleandSew.

    Susan,, I love stitcheries! My friend Margaret got me into them.

  6. Hi Caz,
    Your Funky Chick look great made up in your signature purple fabrics.
    Lovely postcards both given and received.
