so busy

I'm so busy at the moment - this blog post is effectively a displacement activity from other things I need to do.
I've been working on a design brief this weekend and have actually got quite a lot done, but need to carry on for a few hours yet today as I have a deadline this week. I also need to eat at some point (although can't think where I might get time for this).
A couple of things have come from the Monda camp this week - a card for a friends daughter, which I decided to make with a stitched paper patchwork - I really enjoy stitching with paper. It's something that you can't overwork though - it has a tendency to fall apart if you doAlso, I've been working up those green and pink fabrics from my last postI'm using this in my latest design work, which I must get back to now...

They look wonderful! I have stitched paper with jersey fabric (to prevent it from stretching). It felt really fun! How novel is it that you make a card from stitched paper? Genius!
