Some time ago, I tried to make a sample piece with felt, organza and a soldering iron. It didn't work very well, because I used woollen felt, and the organza didn't melt into it as I wanted. I wrote about this on the blog, and what happend?? Jane from Art4Mail sent me an envelope filled with this Kunin (syntetic) felt - all the way from USA!! Thank you so much Jane, my soldering iron and heatgun are ready!!Myra and I have done a trade with bookmarks. This is the one she sent me, and I love it. I wish I could say I was the model for these lovely curves.....In the envelope I also found this beautiful postcard which I had admired on her blog. Sorry Myra, I forgot to take a photo of the chocolate. All of a sudden it was gone!!
Gunnel and I have also done a trade, and this is the postcard she sent me. The day I received the card, it was raining and everything was grey - unless this colourful card. It made my day, and now I also have to look at cross stitches with "new" eyes, they can be very decorative. Thanks Gunnel!
Another trade - this time with Beate. Her blog was one of the first I ever visited. Her art is very colourful, and with lot of humour. I admire her work very much. Just now she's working with felt in the colours of spring, and I was lucky to receive this lovely postcard. Thanks for trading Beate!
The last postcard arrived from Miriam in Dublin. She's not a blogger - (not yet?). Miriam is a source of inspiration for me. We have swapped several postcards during the last year, and every singel card is great. I've seen photos of some of her pieces, and she makes beautiful work. She has explained some of her techniques for me. I used one of them to make the sea/waves on my dolphin card on a previous post. I have a soft spot for anything Irish, so I'm very happy for this card with the high cross. Thanks Miriam!
