Piles and atc's

Well folks, there's no real pictures of stitching today and when I do show you these photos you will understand why!!






Most of that mess is simply because of having to find
space for my new printer!!  
Yikes!!

On another note...today was our monthly CQTeers meeting and  our 'theme' was to create something using a cup and saucer die cut that Sue gave us as our inspiration.  These are what I came up with...


They're done on fabric, trapuntoed, and then painted.  I had some really shiny 'goo' that went over top to hopefully reflect the glaze that is on a 'real' cup and saucer.

Sue made the lovely one below - from paper, which is her forte.....

lol space at a premium then! and heres me thinking if I downsize my home, Id more likely be disciplined and tidy - more often...but if I live without a printer then, I stand a chance? lol

That new printer is going to be worth the mess. I have confidence you will find a good place to stash the stash...or just use it up quick ;-) Love your shiny teacups.

I envy you your friendly group. What I wouldn't do to have one here. In Florida we meet every second Mon. but nobody does our stuff.

I liked the teacups. What every Canadian girl received for shower gifts in my day. I have quite a stash.

Hugs
