Isn’t it always the way! You save something for use in a particular project, and when the need arises, you have so carefully “saved” the ingredient (that) you can’t find it!
This happened with me when I planned to make my “Australia” postcards;
I had planned to do in red work type stitching the outline of the Australian continent. Apologies to Tasmania—I tried to include the island state but the 6 by 4 inch format couldn’t accommodate it.
Having completed the outline of the continent, I went to employ the views of Australian icons that I was going to place within the continent.
No where were they to be found–and I only viewed and filed them mid- December!! (So much for my filing system!!)
I admit that I panicked—-it was too HOT to sort out the tubs of bits and pieces in the HOT garage,
so I settled for “plan two”, and these are the results:
Let’s be honest:They are NOT the artistic result I hoped for, but I’m hoping that the recipients enjoy them!
