Icy morning

As result of a "four seasons" Postcard swap,this striking fabric Postcard , "Icy Morning" by Ruth Nunn,arrived at my home this morning.
There would appear to be at least three layers of fabric forming the shadowy background,superimposed with snippets of silver and black & silver fabrics;covered with a (holographic?) metallic mesh and tulle netting,
and finally,the stark outline of the tree.

Unfortunately,there is a wee bit of damage,possibly caused by bulk mail sorting,but thankfully insufficient to detract from its general attractiveness.

(Do you get the impression that I love it!)
Thanks Ruth! Posted by Picasa

More pot mitts

Nothing exciting today!
Just a couple more sets of pot mitts! This time I recycled some denim off-cuts.

I also completed two fabric 'n fibre Postcards for one of my Swaps.....
For these,I went back to my old love,CQ...........

Roosters and Hens


Some redworked pot mitts,made for craft stall at a forthcoming school fete.
Each red worked mitt will be paired with a plain (no redworked) mitt in similar fabrics. Posted by Picasa

What started it all............


It was a simple butterfly like this,that I painted with Lumiere Pearlescent and added to a "Cat" postcard in a recent swap and which the previous posting referred to.
It's amazing how a coat of paint can jazz things up.
Hopefully,the recipient may take pity on me and send me a pic for my album.
