The Great Big stitched Postcard Swap

Swap Season?
Just a reminder for you!
As my regular readers know Postcard swaps are virtually an addiction with me

Summer in south east Queensland has not been as cruel and harsh as in other parts of Australia this year, but it has been uncomfortable enough for me to prefer staying indoors where I can relax under the fan, or if necessary enjoy the refrigerated temperatures of the precious air-con.
(How did we ever survive summer all those years ago , except by being young and full of life)

Participating in postcard swaps is a way of doing that without leaving the comfort of hearth and home.

A week or so back, I registered to participate in the 7th Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap.


The theme for this swap is CREATE. Stitching can be incorporated into your design any way you wish. Do you use machine stitching in your artwork? Is hand embroidery your thing?
Fabric or paper
recycled or brand new
whimsical or nature or even a combination of whatever tickles your fancy

You are given a swap partner and need only make one postcard. It’s that simple.

Won’t you join me in the 7th Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap? I’m not sure if I have been successful in making the badge n active link, but I know I have included link under the name

As always, I’d love to know if you’re participating. Feel free to let me know by commenting below.
