You've got mail!

From Nellie Durand!
Early in November between visiting Nellie's Blog ,and she visiting mine we arranged to swap Postcards.
(The Link for that was my November 9 blog entry.)

Nellie's fibre card ,which is one featuring Lake Michigan was accompanied by another card
"Passing Storm", advertising a Textile Exhibition featuring her work.

Close examination of the fibre card shows the way Nellie has used curved layering to represent the waves of the lake,and added paint/foam on the wave tops.

A visit to her blog is well worth while, not only for all the techniques she shares with the reader,but to enjoy her quilts and artwork.

Now to attempt a card for Nellie! Posted by Picasa

Thank you for your appreciative comments about my work. I'm pleased you like the postcard. I love that lake and enjoy trying to depict different aspects of it in quilts. There's a series of sunsets over the lake in my earlier postings (Aug/Sept,2005), as well as more lake pieces posted in May and June of this year.

PS: The "real" postcard is a photo of "Passing Storm" ... one of my crinkle quilt art pieces.
