The last weeks I have been busy making "pansie" postcards to sent out for birthdays and swaps.3 of these are sent to Jan and Lisa in the USA and Helina in Finland.
Beyond you see a picture of the lovely postcard I received from Sharon H. from the USA in the Pot Luckswap on Art4Mail.

Today I want to show you some lovely items I have received. On the first picture you see a fabric postcard I got from Jan in the USA and 2 yellow ATC's I swapped with Lisa and Mary, they all belong to the Art4Mailgroup. The fabric page with the dragonfly I received from Maureen in Australia. The background is a beautiful velvet fabric all embroidered with shiny threads, this one is made for the monthly swap on Fibre-fever.Thanks so much for your lovely work ladies!

This is the fabric page I made this month for Marja in Holland, her theme you must have guessed already: "Birds". I found it difficult to start with this subject until I remembered an article in a Quilting Arts magazine from some time ago. As I mostly sew by hand it was a little experiment for me to sew by machine and use paint on the fabric page, but I think it worked well. Here in Holland we call this bird a "Roodborstje".
On Art4Mail I swapped a bookmark with Miriam from Ireland, ain't it lovely. She also sent me this postcard she made of an Irish landscape.

Another painting finished....
This is sweet little Poekie, the other dachshund of my friends Karin and John. I showed them the painting (40x40cm)done in acrylics last Tuesday and they really liked it. Today I have put varnish on it and it looks even better.
And this fabric postcard I made for Marja, she had her birthday last week. We are both member of Fibre_fever.
