“Mary Mary” is the card I received from Teresa G!
It was such a surprise to learn that she lives about eleven k away. We hope to meet in the very near future.
Stitching fingers uses a different swap format to my other groups: here we need only make one card to swap, and it’s a split swap rather than direct.
i.e I receive from Teresa, but I send to Patricia!

Humpty Dumpty is a “one -off” Nursery Rhyme swap with a member of the Stitching Fingers Postcard group.
This card is on its way to Patricia in Rupublic of Ireland.
It’s been “a while” since I did any back-stitching and BOY! does it show!
I used Derwent Inktense water colour pencils to add detail to the stitching…I think it eased the starkness of the calico background and made it more “nursery rhyme-ish” looking.
I hope Patricia likes it

On a happier note: The auction over at AAQI is completed and I’m happy to report that my three cards were sold !
I do not know “who” purchased them, but I am grateful to them, that I was able be a minor fund raiser for such a worthy cause.
In total, the seven of our group from Postmark’dArt that contributed postcards raised US$916!

  1. I really like all your postcards. Interesting art. Have you ever seen the blog of my friend, a frenchwoman, Nanouanne? She does lovely art and has a book on art trading cards.
