Sorry Ive been so slack in posting, it has been a busy month for me with work and now summer has hit us in the middle of spring. I finally did some sewing last weekend and got them base painted, so hopefully should finish those off soon and post some pictures. I have done a little bit of altered art and some swaps at Swapbot. This is an advent calender I have made for a swap and it is made out of matchboxes. all the drawers are filled with goodies. I also made all my Christmas cards ready to go.....hopefully Ill finish some things off this week and post some new pictures..

Last post, I promise...lol. I really need to make this a weekly thing instead of inundating everyone once a month
I made this altered altoid tin for a halloween swap in my ATC swap, the photos unfortunately dont do it justice as in the flesh it is very 3D. Wish I had more access to altoid tins in Oz. They are fantastic tins to alter
On my Australian Altered Arts group, I am holding a monthly challenge, I post a choice of two pictures and then the girls can make whatever they want from them and the members then vote for their favourite. I m not competing but I did contribute and made this tin for pens, it has come in very handy and takes pride and place on my desk at work. Im also hosting a domino swap and I have altered these dominoes and then made a wallet to put them in, Im really happy with how they turned out

I have been working on this quilt for awhile now. I finished all my blocks before Christmas but have been putting off the inevitable....sewing it all together. I was down to my last three days of holidays before heading back to work so I made myself sit down and get it donw. I dont know why I was worrying, I only had to unpick twice..lol. What a relief and now I am starting on a candlewick one..

My daughters 16th birthday is coming up so I wanted to make some little things to put in with her parcles, she wants to be a doctor and is in her 2nd to alst year of school so I made her a tag book of inspirational quotes, a little photo display and finally a small scrapbook that I didnt put photos in, Ive left it up to her to add her own pics.
