So first of all this lovely card arrived in the post from Jeanneke in the Netherlands.
Jeanneke is my swap partner in Sheila's Spring/Easter postcard swap. Thank you Jeanneke for swapping with me and your card is finished and will be in the post first thing on Saturday!
Thank you also to Sheila for organising another swap.
Now, my CQJP block for February is finished and here it is!
A few close ups including explanations for some of the symbolism incorporated.
The pink /orange colour scheme has been a favourite of mine for a while and it seemed appropriate to be stitching it in a hot (sort of) country.
The Mudejar star in the bottom left corner I added as we travelled on the Autovia Mudejar from Zaragozza to Valencia. The bridges along the motorway are decorated with these stars in various forms and there are some interesting sculptures along the way too.
Shells that I collected on the beach (I have masses of these!)
Hearts for Valentines and we saw some early butterflies too. The little silver Indalo man is the symbol of the province of Almeria. He is seen everywhere naming business's, hotels, restaurants, on fridge magnets, jewellery, postcards etc etc.
I did enjoy stitching this block.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
