Calendar Girls - February Postcards

Calendar Girls - February Postcard

Received
This beautiful postcard is from Jenny from Calendar Girls. I really love it!! They are very much my colours, and all of the different fibres she has used look gorgeous together. Thanks Jenny!!

To Send

This is my Calendar Girls postcard for the month of February. I have used fabric which showed blurred images of flowers. I made this fabric by blotting the excess paint from the fabric collage in my previous post. The images of the lace flowers came out in a kind of blurry water colour effect, and I also added a few simple stamps to the background. The vase is appliqued and the rest is freemotion embroidery. This card is for Carol T!

Lovely, I especially like the watercolour effect the flowers and the lace bottom.

How is it going with Phil?
Send him my best wishes please :-)
It took 4 months for my broken leg to get healed a few years ago so I know exactly how frustrating it gets. Nice to see you still have time for some creative work :-)
