Art every day – weekend update

I managed to keep up some creative efforts over the weekend, even through I was trying to relax…
Friday I pottered along with some embroidery.
Saturday, I finished my kitty softie, and I made these collage cards for my “Handmade Holiday Swap #2” partner …they’re sort of non-specific Holiday greeting cards. I also got collage crazy and made a set of 6 greeting cards for my Etsy.  Here’s one:

Sunday I attempted to tidy my craft room a bit, made Shuffle cd mixes for 62 Cherry’s latest cd swap, and then went to stitching night at Mike’s in the evening.  After wading through lots of cute Japanese craft books, I decided on this design:

It’s actually two cutesy kids on a beach towel eating cake (or pizza or something?)  The brown box in the foreground is a gorgeous fold up notebook that Pip gave us all as a gift for coming along.  Yay!  And am now lusting for some Japanese craft books on embroidery!  (argh)

Now I’ve gotta start to organise the Team Craft Tea Towel Tour.
