A postcard day
This is just to show that my view is not always perfect! It was a very nasty morning, but looks a lot better by this afternoon.
as it was such a miserable day it was ideal weather to stay in and have some fun. I need to make a lot of Postcards during the next few months, so I decided to start them today using my Zandra Rhodes inspiration. I know she would never start by using such dark colours, but when I was doing my screen-printing for the TIFF challenge, I used the leftover printing medium on dark fabrics. Today I started over-printing them with brighter colours. Now I need to tack this one to a thin layer of batting and maybe there will be a few more additions to it before I start to free motion embroider it. Watch this space. It might only be fit for the bin, but it's fun and that's why I do all this.
Today I was tagged by Laurence Thank you Laurence for enjoying my blog so much. I enjoyed your blog and I also enjoyed the other blogs on your list in particular the Circle Design - Cd Histoires which I thought was a new (to me) idea to have a whole blog with circular work only.
