During my loft incarceration 2 Saturdays ago I had a lot of time to ponder new projects, and since I needed to make my ATC for the swap Ali’s running I thought I’d make this upon my release.

I’ve been making teeny geese for another secret project, but although I always profess to hate triangles, I’m glad to say this is all paper pieced :oD  The theme was ‘New Beginnings’ and I thought that as this started in spring, and I still have hope that spring will, well, spring soon (it was sleeting here on Monday and Tuesday, SLEETING!!!), I would bring that thought into the card.  I found the best ‘springy’ colours I could, including, handily, one with a flower on it, then selected some linen for the background fabric.  I free motion stitched the lettering (although I’m not entirely convinced about the ‘Flowers’ let me know your thoughts) and then I hand stitched the flower and the dot for the ‘i’.

I’m now scarily ahead of myself for the month, it’s a bit disconcerting!  On the other hand that Ginger Monkey woman’s been leading me astray with whole new unplanned projects, so I’m not exactly sitting about idly ;o)
