After the wedding....

When I asked my step daughter if could I help with her wedding invites, she had them all organised so she asked if I could make her 'Thank You' cards.
 
Easy for me to do as I make cards and have all the bits and pieces to make them, just had to buy some new card.. so two afternoons later I had made 50 with inners ready printed so she just had to fill in the names and the item.
It's amazing how when you do something regularly how easy it becomes.
 
And mandalas?? I have made seven in all, one for Yarndale, three for friends and three for me!
I was hoping it would put a dent in my yarn stash and it has but only a little!
 
I am now planning a quilt for my grandson as I made one for his sister when she went to Uni, so just sorting out some fabric and I might, just might,  have to pop to my fabric store. Why? Because I haven't suitable colours in my stash!!LOL

You did a lovely job with the cards! And I can relate to the fabric. :) No matter how much fabric, yarn etc. I have, it's never quite right for what I need at the moment.

The cards look great well done, I'm planning on making my two boys a quilt each, funny how we never seem to have the exact fabric needed amongst the fabric we collect.

You have a lovely blog! I admire your lovely cards so much. How flattering to be asked to make these.
I know the quilts will be appreciated.
