My apologies for not following through with this earlier - my 96 year old mother in law has come to live with us so I can care for her, and I feel like my life has slowed to a crawl!
I have had five responses to my suggestion for an ATC swap -
Susan and Juliette in England, Mary Lou in Canada, and Maya and Pallavi in India.
As I posted earlier, I have some of my own ATCs ready to swap. So I need to know if you ladies would all be happy to swap with me, or would prefer to swap with each other? I have already had exchanges with Susan, Mary Lou, and Maya, so if you girls would prefer to swap with somebody else, here's your chance. (Speak now or hold your peace!) I'm happy to swap with you again if you wish.
Lorna, I have posted a message direct to you on Your Page. This particular swap is closed, but there is usually someone around here wanting a partner to swap with. So, if anyone reading this would like to exchange an ATC with Lorna, please leave a message here, or contact Lorna direct through her Page.
Gosh, Mary Lou, you and Sue M. are SOOO well organised! I discovered that I only had three textile ATCs (the others were paper), so I've had to make two more. They are done now, so all I have to do is post them.
Sue , I got your ATC!!! Thank-you. Its very delicate and beautiful. Thank-you for the bias tape which has little hearts on it - I'm currently making a redwork sampler of hearts.
Sorry I've not been as efficient but I'll be posting all the ATC's out this week.
Mary Lou I recieved your card today. Its exquisite. First time I'm handling something which has been worked on with an embellisher - they aren't available in India as far as I know. Seems to be a lot of fun. Those watch parts make such pretty flowers. Thank-you again.
I'll be posting the ATC's out to the entire group this week.
This has to be the fastest swap I've ever been in! But I guess it is much quicker to make ATCs than postcards, biscornus, etc. that are bigger and take more time to do. I have received my ATC from Sue - very creative with paper napkins, this lady! I've put a photo on my blog. I'm looking forward to Mary Lou's ATC - the comments here about her using watch parts has me intrigued! I posted my five yesterday (30th March) so hopefully they will start arriving very soon.
You're right Sue, I wasn't! Mary Lou, thank you for your two ATCs - they are lovely, and again, so different from the others in my collection. I've been putting of the ATCs on my blog (Patra's Place), among fabric postcards and all the other stuff that I put on there!!
Ladies as promised I posted my ATC's out to all of you yesterday - 3rd April.Do drop me a line when you recieve them - that should be in about ten days time I think. Pallavi you shoud recieve it earlier.
I received my ATC from Maya too, and I just love it!! You can see a photo here on my blog. I'm afraid it is a rather long post on the blog, and Maya's ATC is in the middle of a whole lot of other stuff, but it is worth scrolling through to find it!
