Some more swaps

Here is a postcard I receivedthis week from a canaian friend in a postcard swap.
It is needlefelted, with a gorgeous garden of flowers embroidered on top.  This is one of my favourites.
The satin stitching around the edge is flawless - nothing like mine!

Here are a couple I have just sent out.
This one is a postcard on the theme sundaes.
This one is fused and embroidered by hand.  It is not my best.  I had a lot of trouble with the theme  - It was a huge challenge for me, lol.

This one is an ATC on the theme Asia.
Unusually, for me - there is no metallic on it.  The kimono was folded from fabric using origami.  The background embroidery was an afterthought and I made it up as I went along, adding the pink strands later.

  1. What beautiful art work you received. I also like the kimono that you made. Origami, now there's a technique that has always impressed me. You did a wonderful job.
