Here are the ATC's I sent out for the challenge on Unlimited textiles group. this group has just been opened up by Alis and Jan, and so the first swap was a get to know you swap. I have been working in purples and yellows of late and so I used my scraps up. I used the method described in the artists muse, chapter 3. I put my wonder web down and then added the pieces, and didn't move them once I had layed it down. I added some tulle over it then, and cut back after stitching. I hand stitched in yellow then. These went out to Sandy and Lynda, and I have one to spare if anyone would like to leave a comment I will draw a winner after i get back from my holiday on the 1st of Sept.
A few weeks ago I found this blog http://michelleward.typepad.com/how_cool_is_that/2007/07/incoming.html
and so I thought when I was sending out my ATC's in envelopes inspired by this challenge. Here are the ones I did:
This was the quilty I made for Claire. This was part of the same swap. I have never made a quilty before but they are a lovely size to work on. I added Prarie points, another thing I have never done before and beaded bits. I think I will do this with the other big sample I have as it will be another edge treatment for C+G.
And this was Claire's envelope. i think this made things a bit more special, at least I hope!
