Back to stitching and a fabric postcard . . .

Having a red and green stitching phase at the moment too - stitch sample strips I'm making into pages for a soft cloth book of stitching. I'm using any threads from my stash as long as they are more or less red or green.

And I've made my first ever fabric postcard - I was sure I'd cut it straight, but it looks decidedly wonky here. It's lying on a piece of dark blue cloth, it's not an edging.

Quite that foil or thinmetal sheet?

Its a kind of fabric, like white woven cotton with a gold shiny side - sort of mock leather .

Deine Postkarte gefällt mir sehr gut,
Vielleicht hast du Lust, einmal mit mir zu tauschen.

I really enjoyed my first visit to your blog Barbara. I enjoyed the photos and stitching. It seems you are like me and can't resist any kind of craft. I fancied those sticks too, but resited buying them, now I'm sorry.

I have enjoyed my first visit here, too!
I love all your pictures of nature and how they relate to your embroidery...See you again soon!
