Swaps to and from

There has been lots happening in my mailbox this week----
First I received this beautiful postcard of a Ginko leaf from Ilse who lives in the US and I am not sure if she has a blog or not.
This swap was arranged through one of the sub groups on Stitchin fingers and it is needle felted.

In the same swap I didn't send one to Ilse but I had to send one to Patsy.
I made this postcard from all the little bits that I had left from one of my workshops with Dale working on the embellisher.

Next is a postcard from Heather who lives in Queensland Australia.
We arranged this one on one swap through the Embellish Stitch and Enrich group which was formed on NING after Dale's workshop.
Don't you just love the dragonfly?

Here is the postcard that I sent to Heather--it has a background of commercial wool felt on which I embellished a square from a sample that I did when I first got my embellisher.
I don't think Heather has a blog either.

I received these bookmarks in a swap with Anna--she has made them from photo copies of work she had done in her journal and then she has cut the pieces up and stitched them back together in a lovely organic pattern.

I sent Anna 2 postcards in return-----
The one on the left is a card one and the one on the right is made from Silk Dupion.

Thanks to all the ladies for the beautiful swaps I have received and I love them all.

I bet your Postie is getting worn out. By the way Sarah Lawrence was admiring your WW today as I wore it to the Craft show.

Lovely pieces, it's great to receive these miniature pieces of art and see the application of different techniques up close.
