Square Grids and Mosaics

Hi All. Hope you have had a good week. The weather here has been a mixed bag with still no snow at all.

I made one of each for the theme this week

I used to help my daughter when she was making big patchwork quilts and sewing every stitch by hand. It involved cutting out lots of shapes from thin card then bigger shapes from the materials she was using. Then the material ones were tacked to the card ones. A real labour of love though she did buy me a special quilter's square rule to help with the process. This is a tag to represent those days.


This is a mosaic background and a photograph of another of my daughter's projects. She did a large tapestry picture of a Samurai warrior and I took a photograph and made him into a Paint Shop Pro Brush. This is a digital piece with other PSP brushes I added as well.

Enjoy your week

Love Chrissie xx
