Bust week last week with a meeting of The Girls where we tried to get to grips with the mysteries of the Needle Punch. I failed miserably but as a reminder of the fun trying I looked for a stitch for my runner that would resemble the loops. Thanks to Mary Corbet I found Turkey Work and after a bit of trial error I managed two lines.

Saturday was a trip to Bromley Embroiderers Guild to hear a talk by Lynda Monk. as ever she was informative and amusing. So generous with her knowledge and such wonderful things to see. I bought two or her screens for printing and trying out some of the techniques she spoke about, so watch this space.
I promised myself that when I put something on my Pinterest board I would also put it here. The other morning I found this. Adding fabric to a tag.. I have done it to make book pages before but thought this has many possibilities.
You can see the full tutorial here at Yours Artfully
and this morning thanks to BJ of ccrafts corner I found this great use for old Christmas cards,
I only hope I can remember it when the season comes round again.
