Life is incredibly busy at the moment and I am getting minimal computer time - I feel quite deprived as I haven't been able to do my normal blog-reading this week! I'll have to get some catch-up time on the weekend to make sure I stay sane(ish).
I have some mixed feelings about the whole informal blog protocol thing about not posting pictures of postcards, ATCs, cards, quilts etc until the recipients receive them as I personally don't really think it matters much - if I am the recipient I am always thrilled when I see the item "for real" regardless of whether I have seen a picture or not. In some ways I think it adds to the anticipation. So that was a long-winded rationalization of the fact that the picture at the top is one of a set of fabric paper postcards that I have just completed but not yet mailed for a small group exchange that has been running this year.
The fabric paper was made "a la Beryl Taylor" with stamping added. I am loving having a machine that has some nice fancy stitches - this one made a nice frame for the vintage image that was printed out on paper and then fused to strong interfacing before being stitched to the postcard.
I've made seven of these (they are all basically the same) so I have one spare if anyone wants to do a postcard trade with me (first in basis - just leave a comment).
