November postcards

Here are our last postcards for 2014.

Carol's postcard, her eighteenth since we began swapping, is a wonderful collage of sparkle and shine, just the way she likes it!
She used a combination of fabrics, threads and found objects, mounted on black felt.

This is Cindy's first postcard since she joined the group this year.
She also collaged found items with printed and dyed fabrics, which were stitched and distressed. Her card was bordered with machine zig-zag stitch.
Maz's postcard, her 25th since we began swapping, combined commercial fabrics with hand stitching and couching. The edges were turned in and slip-stitched.

We've seen Nola's postcard before, when she was making things from the letter challenge.

She used one of her horse images to make a bird, which she mounted on card. The postcard was edged with overlapping cross stitches in variegated perle thread.

But Helen wins the prize for the most prolific swapper, swapping her 33rd card since we began.

Her card was made from layers of commercial fabric, stitched and couched with a variety of stitches. The edges were bound and it has a jaunty tassel.

There will be more postcards in 2015 - I really think we're hooked on them!
