November: postcards

Here are our last postcards for the year. Doesn't time fly?

Remember this embroidery? Helen made it into a postcard. The background was a fabric she dyed a while back.
Jan made her postcard from layers of silk that she dyed herself too.
Maz hand-stitched over layers fabric strips to make her postcard.

Tricia's postcard was made on a dyed background, with added tassels and couched yarn.
All three postcards had folded and slip-stitched edges.

Nola's postcard was made with machine embroidery on organza and painted fusible web. The organza was frayed back to look like grass. It's one of the last of her Heartlands series and has a double satin stitch edge.
We'll be swapping again next year, so there'll be more postcards to see soon!
