A Patchwork Autumn

I haven't done any sewing for years and years, but I still have a few pretty scraps of patchwork fabric hanging around, so this week I decided to bring some into action on a card. I cut out the leaf-printed shapes, then stuck them to a card on which I had used autumnal colours from a Kaleidacolour pad to stamp three lines of "stitched" borders. A greeting stamped with the same pad was all the card needed to finish it. (Hmmm...... looks as if it's time to replace that ink pad - and I've  only had it for 15 years!)



I'm sharing this with
