Hello everyone. I don't have much on my desk today but I did participate in my first postcard swap this week.
It was an all media swap so anything goes/went as far as materials used. I have only done two other swaps that involved dolls so this was an interesting change. I had no idea what to make.
As my swap partner lives in England I thought about doing something with a "Canadian" theme....sort of:)
The postcard I created was of our robin which is very unlike the robin found in Great Britain. It is called the American Robin and is actually part of the thrush family. As it is the first migratory bird that we see every spring I entitled it "Mr. Robin - The Herald of Spring".
The embroidery pattern is from Sublime Stitching and is based on the artwork of Ryan Berkley. There are four animal characters in the pattern...I want to make Mr. Fox next.
One other element was that we also had to send a postcard from the place where we are currently living.
Hmmmm....I see a definite bird theme going on lately in what I make...hee hee:)
The mermaid I mentioned in my last submission to WOYWW and WIP is still languishing somewhere..... maybe in the Sargasso Sea or maybe in the Bermuda Triangle.
I don't know what to do with her. I may make her into what she originally was meant to be from the original design...a lapel pin.
So that's it for now. If your want to see more WOYWW desks go visit The Stamping Ground here and you can find more WIP at The Needle & Thread Network here.
p.s. Thank you to all of you lovely people who have joined on as followers. I really appreciate it:)
