The postal carrier had a special little package for me today. Doreen of Creative Meanderings asked to do an ATC swap and it came today.

This scan does not do it justice. The leaf and the gold stitching sparkle, as does the deep blue stitching. There is so much texture on this, I just love it. The colors are some of my favorite. It came with a beautiful little card. I don’t think Doreen has received mine yet, so I will not show it here just yet.
I can show you another birthday postcard I made for Lynda, who is another Fiber Arts Friend whose birthday is also this month.
I layered a piece of painted dryer sheet, purple and violet wool fibers, purple Angelina fibers, more wool fibers, and some torn strips of the dryer sheet onto a piece of purple felt. I hand needle felted these all together. Then I covered it with a piece of tulle and free-motion stitched it down. Happy Birthday was stitched on my embroidery machine. I chose the purples for the obvious reason that Lynda is known as “purple missus”.
