More Postcards

After a couple of quite disrupted days (problems with my longarm machine made it necessary to throw it in the back of the car & drive to Camden for some expert tweaking) I finally finished the quilt that was on the machine with a little bit of time to spare this afternoon.

So I decided to finish off some of the samples from last week's class and turn them into some more postcards for the FFAC project.

The first one is a gum blossom, enhanced with a little bit of fusible applique. The second is a banksia blossom and leaves, stitched then beefed up with some gold metallic paint.

Fun, huh?!?! Posted by Picasa

Glad I learned of your blog from Lisa W!
Cheers, Sarah

Love the postcards, too. I'm posting on the run, as we don't have WiFi at home this month.
