Red letter day!.....Fabric & fibre Postcards

Today's mail was a real red letter day with three postcards and two books arriving.
The first two
cards were expected,

as my "booty" from the Postmark'dArt swaps winds down to its conclusion.

The first card,from Darma R came as part of the Cat Swap,and was a message to Think Pink;and find a cure for Breast cancer.
A fun way to send a serious message!

The second,from Ginny C,came as part of My BackyardSwap and featured a Strawberry runner with seed beaded fruit.


The third card was a wakeup call,as in the slight turmoil of the past couple of weeks,I had forgotten that I'd signed to the Masks,Masks,Masks swap with the FAPC

The card (above)came from Darlene S and is a layered applique: very striking with its combination of red,black and white with sequin highlights.
Having had a wakeup call I spent the afternoon working on my four cards.One completed,three to go!

Finally,a parcel I've been waiting for arrived from Fancy Fibers also known as Heavenly Embellishments (same Link)
The books are " Three-Dimensional Embroidery Stitches" by Pat Trott,
and "Mixed Media Explorations" by Beryl Taylor.

As I've restrained myself all afternoon and evening,I'm off to indulge in some reading,dreaming,planning of future projects.
I'll report on the books at a later date.
Goodnight! Posted by Picasa
