Beautiful Mail & A Productive Wed Night

I received some terrific mail in the last couple of days - the beautiful home-themed canvas from my friend Gaye (I love it and I see that the texture in the corner Gaye!!) and these gorgeous cards and ATC from Dianne Mahoney (who doesn't have a blog but who should so we don't just see it in magazines!!) I have positioned the ATC on top of the card in the scan as the delicate embellishment on the card did not survive the journey unfortunately. But I love that beautiful background.


This is a bit of quick post as I am really tired tonight and I'm going to go to bed early and read but I thought I would share a progress shot of the felted ATCs I started at Annie's last night. They are for a swap and are made with my Clover hand felting thingo rather than my embellisher. They will look a lot better when they are finished - there is more felting to be done, plus of course some stitching, beading and edge-finishing but I was pleased with how quickly they came together. I am using merino wool from The Thread Studio - fabulous colours!

Hope you're not putting too much of your blood in your felted atc's, those felting needles are SHARP (I'm sure you've worked this out!!! lol).
