This week's mail............

....delivered two fabric and fibre postcards............both from friends I have met through our mutual love of CQ.

The first card,introduces Mary C-B's cat Oliver!
As you can see,Mary is an artist!
Oliver (the cat) has been created by Mary using her Janome Xpression.........I guess that I can plead guilty to helping Mary buy the machine VBG.
Mary also told me that this was her very first postcard:

Mary's "Oliver card "arrived on a day when I needed a real pick-me-up...........the card,and the thought behind it,certainly lifted my spirits .

Thank you Mary.......both Ken & I love it.

Today's mail delivered this burgandy,white and silver "Glitz and Glamour" card from Faye D-S.
It actually arrived on Faye's birthday...so I hope she had as good a day as I did!
Faye has used two layers of burgandy organza (ribbon??) and machine quilted in silver over the right hand third of the card;
A fluffy white feather has been added over the right edge of an added glitzy organza ribbon and my monogram added in (I think) silver pearl.

In my opinion,the burgandy fabric has provided a perfect foil for the "glitz"

A real treasure!............ thanks Faye
