Dipping my toe in the blog pool

So many challenges online need a Blog to post work on to enter, so I've decided it's time to join in... the weather is grotty so it's time to get on with it. Ok the rainbow across the back garden was yesterday but today has been more of the same.

Today I've been sewing blocks for the BQL bag challenge for October, I test out the patterns for Kandy, who creates them. I won't post photos here in case anyone doing the challenge reads this, but I will say that the bag is just lovely, though sewing out lots of identical blocks to make it is a bit tedious.

So I took a break from the sewing machine...

I got this lovely stamp in the post today from Clarity stamps and played with it a little as a break from the blocks. I stamped it onto some brayered glossy card first and then onto a glimmer misted piece of paper, colouring it with Marvey pens and putting 3 layers of clear embossing over all of it. Nice stamp but I think it'll come into its own for cards, not working ATC sized as I was here.
