Around the public holiday...

... our meetings have been disrupted lately by the Queen's Birthday holiday and members travelling.

We did manage to swap our May postcards. This is Maz's postcard, of that Aussie essential, the cup of tea, which is fast being replaced by coffee.

She free-motion machine stitched her design on a fabric scrap and hand stitched the edges with long and short blanket stitch.

Helen's postcard was paper-based last month. The background is Japanese paper and the three-dimensional paper figures are from a picture bought in Japan.

Jan's quirky postcard is called "Artist Endangered by Lobster".
Her postcard has a background of linen and rusted fabric, hand embroidered, with slip-stitched edges.
