New Work 2

More updates
My beaded star - yes for the Christmas tree
 Have a guess what I used these for. I found them on a walk on the beach in Gran Canaria!
 A new piece of work for an exhibition entitled Coast. Any thoughts what my inspiration was for this piece?

 Another Coast piece of work started
 A beaded Christmas Tree - yes more Christmas work.

Postcard Swaparoo

Anyone like to join in the next postcard swaparoo? Go here and join in the fun. I love exchanging work that I've done and have made lots of new friends as a result.

New Work

I thought I might share with you two swaps I made recently. I made a piece of embellished felt using silk and wool fibres and a chiffon scarf on black acrylic felt. One small piece made a postcard that went off yesterday (see the picture at the top of this post.) and another became a needlebook that was sent to a friend in Needlework Haven.

I hope they both enjoy my efforts.

Embroiderers' Guild Swap

This year I decided to take part in the Embroiderers' Guild on-line forum fabric swap. I sent a small bag of fabrics and embellishments to Elizabeth in Queensland, Australia. In return I received these lovely fabrics from Dian in Mt Eliza, Australia.
This is what I made with them. My Kookaburra Hanging
 Detail 1
 Detail 2
 This is the thank you card and brooch I received from Elizabeth. Thank you so much. The brooch goes so well with my shirt, don't you think?

I forgot to take a photo of the card I sent to Dian, she has posted a picture on the Guild Forum Gallery. I tried to download my photos but for some reason they wouldn't go so I will post a link to my blog instead. I finished it just in time for the September 1st deadline JUST! However I was out last night so didn't get the photos up.
