Postcards 1 received and 1 mine

I am a member of the Calendar Girls and we are making postcards from the pictures on a calendar--just follow the link for details.
Here is my February postcard I received from Joanna --it is made from hand dyed fabrics with a hand painted flower and bud.
Joanna took her design from the pattern on one of the vases in the picture.
Thank you Joanna it is so beautiful.

The second one is my sample for this months challenge with the Creative Group at the Embroiderers Guild.
You would think that I would have had enough of stitch samples after the TAST challenge last year but no I am at it again and there are only 12 of them so that should be easy.
I have decided to do postcard size samples this time.
The first stitch was running stitch.

I have started the Creative year out well and in january I completed 10 things that I had set out to do.
If I can keep that up all year it will be fantastic.

I'm glad you like it Doreen. I'm wishing for some of your weather. It's cold here!
