Mail Art Reveal

My 1st mail art exchange and i really enjoyed stitching this for Tina (no blog). Fabric is from Sassy's such a pretty colour it reminded me of a mediteranean sea.

Here's the one i received in the exchange from Lynn. All survived the postal system and were lovely. Another is being organised for Christmas, shall i join it?

Fruit & Veg Show
The show yesterday was a great success, local gardening celebrity Ady Dayman came to give out the prizes and aution off the produce that was shown. It was an exhausting but very enjoyable day. I won 3 x 1st place rosettes for Grandma Pitty Poo, homemade raspberry jam tarts and marmalade, 2 x 2nd rosettes for apple pie and pickled beetroot, and 2 x 3rd place for fruit cake and a photograph i entered of Mr Moe. DH did well with his fruit and veggies too.

Hope you all had a good weekend too

The mail art is gorgeous, I enjoyed taking part but I'm not sure I'll be able to fit in the Christmas one as I've birthdays and births to stitch for before Christmas :( Hopefully there'll be another one for spring :)

I just love the mailart that you mad and received. The fabric you used for yours was just the perfect color.

I am doing my first mailart exchange in Dec and am looking forward to it but am wondering how to prepare the material.
