ATC from Tricia

I received this ATC from Tricia several days ago and I haven't stopped looking at it since.
I met Tricia through the new Stitchin Fingers group and we decided to do a swap together.
I asked Tricia what her surname was so I could put it on the envelope and she said it was Cook but she didn't like it.
I then told her that Captain Cook was the first person to raise the English flag on our soil claiming it for England.
This then set the wheels in motion for this wonderful ATC because Tricia decided to do a scene from Robin Hoods bay which was where Captain Cook was born.
The detail in the little work of art is amazing and I truly am in awe of it.
Tricia has worked it with a hand held felting needle.
Thank you Tricia--do you get the feeling that I love it.

Oh and by the way if you would like to see some more of her beautiful little scenic ATC 's drop by her blog via the link above.
This is the ATC that I sent her which was done on my embellisher with Hand embroidery on it.
