Today I want to show you 2 postcards.
The first one I made for Ati in Norway, who celebrated her birthday last week. She has sent me an article about making fabric paper some time ago, so this was a good opprtunity to give it a try!The next postcard with the sweet little rabbit I received from Lisa, I swapped with her in the Pot Luck swap on Art4Mail. Thanks for swapping Lisa!

This is the fabric page I made for Margreet here in the Netherlands this month. She wrote to me that she liked it very much, she is living in the Northwest part of Holland and sees this landscape with flowers often in spring.

Today I received this beautiful fabric page from Lise in Norway. The background fabric is a rusted piece. I read about this technic in the Quilting Arts magazine, think I am gonna give it a try soon also.

The background of the page is also beautiful, wish I had a machine that could do such wonderful stitching......... Once again thanks Lise!

Hi there,

I am back from a wonderful vacation in Florida!

We stayed in Orlando and Fort Myers Beach and have been driving around a lot.

The last part of the vacation at Fort Myers Beach was awesome. We stayed in a resort at the beach and have seen a lot of wildlife, I especially liked seeing dolphins and manatees diving up close to you!

Unluckely coming back in Holland we both got the flu, there were a lot of people sneezing in the airplane on our way back home.

Now life is back to normal (almost, there is a heatwave here in the Netherlands at this moment) so I started painting and sewing again. This weekend I have to finish a "landscape" fabric page for Margreet, I will show you a picture when it is ready. Last Thursday I finished this painting, some months ago I told you about the lambs that were born in front of our home, these are the little ones with their mother.
