Scrap Quilts

Hi Everyone. I am back at least today.  It seems the whole neighborhood was having internet issues and the explanation for it was that the atmosphere in our area was preventing the satellite signal to get through. Those days there was no wind hardly at all and today it is really windy. I don't know if that makes a difference or not but I am online today. Whew! We even cut down a tree thinking that was in the way of the signal. But since I have service today I will take this opportunity to show you some artwork I did while it was down. I also am reading a book. So it was some constructive idle time at least.

I used three scraps for the quilt. One of pattern paper and two of card stock. My quilt die is from MFT Die-Namics. And, the deer head is from Cutplorations. All the card stock and pattern paper as well as the sentiment are from Gina K. Designs. The glitter paper was from my stash of scraps.

I am entering this in the Double D Challenge-Use Your Scraps.

I apologize for not commenting on your posts but once I got the internet working again I looked at the messages and blog posts but did not take the time to comment. I was in a hurry as I was not sure if the signal would last and I had to clear my inbox. I even had ordered some digital stamp sets and it took me three days to download them to my computer. My signal was too weak and too slow to do it. But today I got that done as well. So I am feeling so much happier.

My heart goes out to our nation and world too with all the violence of late. I hope we can find healing now and also peace. My sympathy to the family of George Floyd too.

Take care everyone and if I am missing again for a long spell no doubt it may be to internet issues again. But as long as I can keep in touch I will.

God bless,

Verna, the quilt background is so cool. The papers you used really make that background. The quilt looks super with the deer head. Stay safe.

This is so unique to use the quilt die to make use of scraps and for these Christmas cards. So glad that your computer worked and that you were able to add them to the challenge at Double D.

These quilt cards look fabulous with the stag head on them, and I like how you made a quilt card masculine this way! Beautiful job. I know life gets complicated with tech issues but hopefully yours are resolved soon!

Well, that's interesting about the atmosphere preventing the signal getting through. I've never heard of that, but I've never had a satellite dish. It looks like it's been behaving for you. Our lives and the internet are so intertwined. Beautiful Christmas cards today, Verna! Homespun and and a bit rustic. Makes me think of Christmas at the cabin!
