Today the postie delivered surprises from distant places.
This ATC (from the UK) is called Rockpool and was sent to me by Lorna - artymess, as part of the Stitchin Fingers ATC group swap for May. The theme was under sea creatures. Take a look at the atc blog to see the fantastic tiny works of art that are swapped throughout the year.http://textileartisttradingcards.blogspot.com/
The next parcel was a card with gorgeous threads, sent to me by a dear friend in Queensland. I can see these will be used on future ATCs and postcards. Thanks so much Laurel for thinking of me and for your generosity.
Once I had finished drooling over the first two parcels I opened one from the USA.
This was a prize I won through a random draw on the 3 Creative Studios forum. Each month a new technique is suggested and members show the results of their efforts. Then one name is drawn for the prize. This past month I was the lucky winner of threads, hand dyed fabrics, buttons, yarns, a gorgeous handmade book and card. So many possibilities.
This last little group of goodies were included in the parcel from Lorna.
