Show and Tell Monday

I recently got a mini quilt published in the Joanna Sheen monthly newsletter and thought I would share with all the Pink Ladies. I used images from her CD Rom 'Fashion Boutique' printed onto fabric with other fabric added and some embellishments.

'Readers Card of the Month - Caroline Nash

I would once again like to thank everyone who has sent in cards for inclusion in our “reader’s card of the month” feature. They are all so lovely and we enjoy looking at each and every one. When I receive them they are kept in a file so if you have sent one and it hasn’t appeared yet, that doesn’t mean it won’t.
Obviously, we can’t do this without you, the readers, and so once again, I would like to invite any of you to send in a scan or photo of a card they have made and an explanation on how you made it. If your card is featured, you will receive a £10 Joanna Sheen gift Voucher which is a lovely keepsake as well as useful. So, here is how to enter your card for the newsletter “Card of the month”. Send a clear photograph or scan plus an “in depth breakdown” on how you made it (as much information as you can) to if you have made the card for a special occasion, please do tell us about it too.

This month we are actually showing something different from the norm. Instead of a card, we have a mini quilt which is absolutely gorgeous.

March’s “Reader’s “quilt” of the month” is from Caroline Nash

I chose to spend my voucher on another CD Rom from Joanna called 'Messy Rabbit'

Check out her website Joanna Sheen she is a talented lady and produces the most wonderful Victorian CD roms, although Messy Rabbit is not of this era, he and his friends are so sweet thought they would add an extra dimension to my work. she also ships internationally.

Remember to check out the other Make Mine Pink blogs, with a special thank you to Marie from 'Savon Marie' for her testimonial on my behalf.
