September Postcards

This is the beautiful “Autumn” postcard which Tessa sent me from my Yahoo group swap. It’s her first attempt at silk painting, too!

It’s taken me all month (and then some!) to get around to making mine to send but in the end I was inspired by a Japanese wallhanging I saw in an Oast library book. (I can’t tell you the name or author as I can’t read Japanese characters though!)

The PP group swap this month was “My Earliest Memory”. I’m pretty sure that I remember sitting on the step into the kitchen and “washing” my doll as Mum cooked dinner. I wouldn’t think that a photo would have been taken of something so ordinary all those years ago! I asked DH for a drawing and he duly obliged, using DD3 as a model. I then traced it onto stitch and tear and free-motion embroidered it onto calico before making up the postcard. That’s when I realised it wasn’t 6×4″….never mind!

In return, Anna sent me this recollection of a “Damp Day” at nursery and being unbable to play on the slide:

This particular swap is almost over – this month’s theme is “Happiness”, I opted for frivolity…well, almost – chocolate, sewing and coffee are extremely important!

Mum of 4, I live on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. I've always sewn but the quilting bug snagged me a couple of years ago and now, with the encouragement of my artist husband, I'm spreading my wings into textile art.
