I've been playing around with my transfer paper today. I also tried stamping some images and sayings on fabric using a black archival pad. Seemed to work ok. Look out for these on future ATCs.
Also went to The Beetroot Tree in Draycott to buy more supplies of Angelina fibres!

Here are some images I stamped onto Angelina fibres. I kept the iron on too long on the first one - but I quite like it!
You have to experiment with stamps; some don't work quite so well.
Pile some fibres on to a stamp.
Thats about it!
You can of course, just lay fibres in between baking parchment and iron on top.You then get a flat piece of glistening fabric.

Rosie and I did 3 mermaid swaps plus 2 others. I love her ATCs but she also made me a hanging mermaid with a glitzy crackle glaze fishtail and fabulous hooters. It is wonderful. (Sorry, but I love the word 'hooters').
I am having a go with the t-shirt transfer paper because I want to put images onto fabric.It worked really well! Here are some of my frst attempts. Looking forward to using them in my ATCs etc.
I'm a lucky girl!
Hopefully have some work to show tomorrow.

It is so beautiful, so neat..and lovely to touch.
I'm thrilled with it (in case you hadn't noticed).
Have a look at the latest quilt on her blog - I want that one too!
I'm happy to say she used one of my favourite quotes from my blog.
Thank you Cat - I'll be having another look on your etsy shop very soon!
Thank you also Sesga for saying such nice things about the present I sent you. I'm so glad you liked it.
Off now to make more mermaid ATCs. Sesga says I may have been one in an earlier life! What a lovely thought.......but my swimming's not that good.............
This is my attempt at a scrapbook page for Chris's 'Love Challenge'.

I'm using stamps, angelina fibres, gold net, ribbon and vintage fish clip art from here (thanks for that link Chris).
Oh well...back to the chocolate.....and maybe more mermaids.
'A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Chose him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed, and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.'
(Can't remember where I got that from!)

There's not a great deal I can do today - other than mess around with paper.

It reminds me of this quote:
The greatest things you can give your children are roots...........and wings.

I wanted to make a few ATCs today, but only managed to make a mess!

I've just spent the last 2 days making my ATCs for a club challenge, but I can't show those for a couple of weeks.

Today is our Pearl Wedding Anniversary - we've put up with each other for 30 years!
I made a card for Brian - its a bit odd, but he loves it.
