Mail Sent - Mail Received
I think all of us that do crafts enjoy exchanges. There's nothing quite like receiving a package that you know came from a stitchy friend whether it's cross stitch, quilting or whatever.
Today I'm showing you pictures of a mail art envelope I did as an exchange with my friend Angela in UK.
Sadly, it looks as though the envelope has been lost in the mail as Angela never received it but she has asked to see it so here it is.
The pictures show the envelope front, the envelope back and for inside I stitched a pinkeep with a mermaid on the front and Angela's initial on the back.
The stitching is done on 32 ct antique white linen using two strands of Vikki Clayton's hand dyed silk in Garnet.
I'm really sad that this exchange went so sadly wrong but that's the risk we take when we send things like this through the mail.
On a happier not I want to show you a fabric postcard that I received from my friend Christine in Canada.
Christine knows how much I love mermaids and wow, isn't this a beauty?
Click on the picture for a better view of the gorgeous sparkly threads and crystals that are on her belly, forehead and on the crest of the waves.
Christine is so talented. I'd love it if some of you went over there to check out her work and please, please leave her a comment as it sometimes seems there is only me visiting there.
