Postcards from Maureen

I finally managed some postcards over the weekend:

The first two were (hand) needle felted as I watched TV as the Wallabies lost the Bledisloe Cup to the NZ All Blacks.

I n/f the tomato red wool on a foam block,cut them to 6by4 inch size,mounted them on Timtex and further embellished the pieces with n/f abstract shapes featuring wool and "Glitz" mohair.

The next three I developed using Australiana themed fabrics and Australian stamps.
Maybe they won't appeal to some people,but my idea was to give a taste of Australia to my overseas friends.

These postcards are gorgeous. I love them all.

Thanks Carol.......I've been feeling a bit "blah" creatively lately,and was worried that the recipients thought they weren't "arty" enough.

Isn't that what postcards are supposed to be about? the flavor of the place they come from? I think they're wonderful!
