When Sheila of Sheila's Quilt World invites us to participate in her postcard exchanges, I try to join in because it's challenging and a nice way to get in touch with other bloggers from, literally, around the world. The last two exchanges are a good example of this. See this beautiful giraffe? It is fabric painted and stitched by Janet who blogs at Caribou Crossing Chronicles. What an elegant creature. Thank you, Janet.
This is the postcard I made and sent to Janet It made a long journey from New England in the U.S. up to the Northwest Territories to the Yukon. Lucky postcard:)
I also joined in the December exchange and received this beauty from Virginia who is a Canadian but winters in Florida, so our cards just went up or down the east coast. This card is lovely; the trees are on a net background and have glittery stars and balls. It's so pretty. Thank you, Virginia.
This is the card I sent to Virginia. As you can see I am in cross stitch mode.
Thank you, Sheila, for organizing the swaps. My collection of cards is growing and I like placing then on the door frames to add to the decorations for the season.
We are having such a mild season so far that I still have flowers blooming. They have a bit of a tired look to them, but I'm amazed that in December they are not quitting.
Have a wonderful week.
