A few swaps

This week I received this lovely Christmas ornament and card for Maureen in a swap that we had organised between ourselves.
You will notice that Maureen has used the same print on the card (in paper) and the ornament (in fabric) how clever is that.
Thank you Maureen they are beautiful.

These are the tags that I sent to Maureen--they are made from calico which I stitched on and then they were stiffened with 50/50 PVA and water that had coffee mixed in with it to give them an aged look.

Next is a postcard from Mary Lou in Canada which was swapped as part of the Stitchin fingers postcard group.
It has a felted background with hand embroidery on it.
Thank you Mary Lou it is lovely.

This is the postcard that I sent to Mary Lou in return.
It was made on the embellisher and has hand stiting on it also.

Thanks ladies.
