Martha Negley Cards

Has anyone else seen Martha Negley’s new cute fabric – cupcakes, strawberries, frosting, coffee.  Cute and fun! I got a couple of half-yard pieces just because I couldn’t resist and made some cards last night.  I’ll spare you the ugly first attemps and leave you with the ones that I like the best  – the ones that came together late into the night when my creative juices seem to be flowing at their best.





It’s fun playing around with the different stitches on the machine.   I’m not sure what’s up with the picture quality…

I didn’t post much last week – I was reading a classic – The Good Earth by Pearl Buck.  It was gripping, but left me with a sense of how hopeless life can be when all you live for is yourself.  *sigh*  Hopefully I’ll be up for sewing some more this week

    What lovely stitches. And what fun fabric.

    I haven’t thought about The Good Earth in decades. I remember being moved by it, but I don’t remember why.

    your cards are sooo beautiful!

    I like Pearl’s Buck books. I remember reading one about a hospital somewhere is Asia… doctor, nurse, love. I’m not sure, it was so long ago, but I remember I really loved it! Ahhh the teenage years..

    I love the cards, the different stitches really bring out the character of the fabric’s pattern.

    I’m loving that cupcake fabric! (And I can pretend they are gluten free too, mmmm mmm!)

    I really like that book. I thought it did a great way of showing the rise and fall of society, even though she only showed it in one man’s lifetime.

    I love those cards!! Isn’t it fun using the stitches on your machine? That’s how I felt when I got mine. Well, I still feel that way. FUN. I’m glad you have a new one!
    You were right about the comment not showing on my blog, I’ve been trying out a new anti-spam plug in and it’s not working.

    Ooo those stitches are cool. Mine does zig zag and hmmm, that’s about all. Those look like tons of fun.

    I haven’t seen that fabric but LOVE it. I just read a post over on the Quilting Arts blog about ATCs and the basic instructions. I haven’t made any but you’re inspiring me. What a satisfying project to start and complete in one sitting. Sometimes that’s just what I need to get my juices flowing.
