Two ATCs and a Postcard

This is the ATC that I made and sent recently as part of the fabulous Cyber Fyber swap and exhibition which Susan Lenz has been busy creating. It is made using cut-back or reverse applique using organzas plus machine embroidery.

This ATC is for another swap between myself and Annica Lindsten in Sweden. It is made of my own silk paper which I screen printed with the design of seed heads.

This is the postcard I made for the Cyber Fyber swap, again from the screen-printed silk paper but this time incorporating a disc of tiny-scale crazy patchwork embellished with machine embroidery.

My Cyber Fyber contributions can be seen in the on-line exhibitions here (ATC) and here (Postcard).

Other than this, I've been struggling since I last posted, having a couple of fluey viruses in quick succession. I managed to make my daughter a long dress to wear in her choir concert earlier in the month. My Christmas preparations were severely curtailed by my health problems and I did not manage to write my Christmas cards so have been thinking about a New Year card instead. I seem to have managed to miss this boat as well so will have to think again.

Wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy and Creative 2009!

Your ATC's are lovely! I'm particularly fond of the seedheads (naturally!) I hope you will be feeling better soon - this fluey virus that's going round is knocking lots of people for six.

nasty bugs indeed Sue. Your work is lovely, though!

Happy New Year to you - a little advance of the event but better early than not at all.

Hi Sue,

Your postcards are great. Sorry to hear you have been a bit under the weather. I get the grumps at this time of the year, when all creative thoughts disappear. There's no easy way out of that one.

As you will have seen - all has returned, just as well I have a deadline for three quilts by next week. One more to go! Oh yes, finished quilting the indigo piece.

All good wishes for the New Year.

So effective, the seedheads on silk paper!
