Over the past few days my post box has been filled with stuff from the UK – it seems the postal problems they were having over there have now eased and I am in receipt of cards from two swap partners.

This is card number #7 in the Stichin’ Fingers Autumn/Thanksgiving exchange and it comes from Jane – she has cut and fused then hand stitched layers of autumn leaf shapes over an autumn fabric base:

Thanks, Jane!

My swap partner in the Stitchin Fingers ATC swap was Lorna who is also in England – her lovely ATC arrived in a week from the posted date!  Lorna’s card has layers of sheers in varying colours some of which appear to have been melted.  These have been FME’d into place with lovely sparkly thread and then crusted over with some seed beads.  Sandwiched in amongst all the fabric is a copper foil leaf.  So much detail!

These swaps are so inspiring…..there is so much to learn from each piece that arrives.
