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

Love the gold paint on the banksia. They make wonderful postcards

Gorgeous! Maybe I'll get lucky and snag one in Houston!

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

Great postcards. I really like the Banksia one.

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