Postcard Swap

This month in the Fabric Postcards for Stitchers group my swap partner was fellow Aussie Gina.
The theme was a choice of either Spring Flowers or the Colours of the Rainbow.
Gina chose the Colours of the Rainbow to do for me and I chose Spring Flowers to do for her.
I love the mixture of fabrics and lace and ric rac braid plus hand embroidery that Gina has chosen.




My choice for Spring Flowers is another piece of an old embroidered doyley that I had plus a lace butterfly motif.
I have heaps of old doyleys that I rescued from our church op-shop some in good condition and others with holes and rust spots and stains.
I use the damaged ones in crazy patchwork and to make postcards from.



Thanks for the swap Gina--I am enjoying this group very much.

These are beautiful!

The rainbow one sort of combines the two because it also has a row of little flowers. Both postcards are so pretty. And I love that you rescued the doilies and have put them to good use.

Both of these are beautiful, for totally different reasons.
