ATC Swaps



I am slowly fulfilling my swap obligations! Today I sent off 3 ATC's. 2 went to the U.K. These were made out of my "purple lace" fabric, with the addition of a couple of wrapped tyvek beads. The 3rd one is for ATC-WDU group, an Australian/New Zealand ATC swap group - and the theme this month was New Beginnings. My ATC represents the addition of handstitching in my work, as that is what my aim is. I love the combination of hand and machine stitching. Then I have 2 left over which will be added to some others I will be making for the ATC Challenge which will be on display at the Australian Quilt Convention.
