I was matched up with Rachel in Australia who sent me this wonderful little guy
and with Sharon in Nova Scotia who sent this wonderful winter scene
My return postcard was of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I sent the same card to both ladies cause I loved the way it came out. He is a bit shiney because I took the photo after I put him in his mailing envelope. I used the envelope to try and protect the beads from the machinery in the various Post Offices he would be visiting.
I'm really loving Post Cards. I don't mind experimenting with small pieces. If I fail it just doesn't matter. I can start over with minimal loss of time and materials. I am learning things like the fact that Rudolph's nose didn't make it intact to all of the people he has been sent to. Will need to use a less fragile type of bead in the future or do it as an applique or a stitch. Learning, it's a good thing.
So Thanks Sheila, I'm sew looking forward to your next swapping event.
