More postcards.

I heard today that the postcard I sent to Annette in the Spring Postcard Swap had finally arrived - I was beginning to worry as I had sent two at the same time and the other arrived last week. So panic over.

This is the card I sent to Annette

I used a piece of procion dyed fabric and printed onto it with acrylic paint using a funky foam print block I cut a couple of years ago. Some simple running stitch around the outline emphasised the shape.

The postcard swap was organised by Sheila and as a little thank you for her organisation I sent her this tulip postcard which used the same technique as the daffodil one.

I am pleased to say that both cards were well received!

Hope you are having a good week- the weather here has returned to winter although, unlike some parts of France, we do not have any snow.

Happy stitching
