'tis the season of the year and next week Christmas lunch with my chums at The Mill.   We all bring a plate of food and end up with a table full of delicious dishes.

It was decided that this year we would all make a 'postcard'.   Found my 
sewing machine,  gathered materials and this is the result.

painted tissutex, block printing, free machine stitching 
and sequins - suitably festive I think!

Now I must turn my thoughts to the three Journal Quilts
that need to be finished by the end of the month.

I'm not sure what tissutex is though???

Tissutex is a paper made from abaca fibres. It can be painted or dye, laminated and so on I use it as a base for 'paper fabric'.
