From Paris with Love

I'm enjoying playing with some digital images using a free downloadable program called GIMP which is similar to photoshop. This is a little collage I designed. I then printed the collage onto washable cotton and stitched into a couple of zipper pouches.

I had a great day at my first quilting workshop, so hopefully (when I get it finished!!) I will be able to show you my Jelly roll quilt which is based on a Jacob's ladder pattern

I Hope you're all enjoying the beautiful sunny weather here in the UK, long may it continue, just wish I could somehow use my sewing machine in the garden LOL!

Thanks for all your lovely comments and have a great Crafty Thursday xx

So gorgeous. Love the vintage image and beautiful purses.
It has been glorious hasn't it, I am loving being in the garden and getting my pots ready with summer bedding, but no crafting done!!! Never mind we have to make the most of it while we can.

Paris perfection! Paula, I just love these purses! Beautiful image! Did I ever tell you that I made a queen size bed quilt and one of my doggies from the past thought it was a chew toy?? It took me near two years to finish and then I came home one day to cotton batting all about! Hugs and enjoy that nice weather!

Hi Paula these are beautiful so professional! I was just wondering what printer you use. I need a new one for craft purposes that can print transparencies. Would you recommend the one that you use? Cheers toni x
