Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

Mail Art Exchange

I know Zohrah hasn't received this yet, seeing as it only got sent out last week, but as far as I know she doesn't read my blog, and I've decided to post a piccie of it anyway while I'm waiting for my dinner to reheat. Here was my 2nd attempt at the same design thanks to Mr Postman ... I made a pretty crappy attempt at the buttonhole closures, and definitely need a lot more practice, but it looks OK, I think. The buttons were bought in Auckland while I was visiting in May ... funnily enough, I bought 4 of them at the time ... perhaps I knew something way back then!!! The names have been taken out for privacy reasons. The design was from one of the XS magazines that I can't put my hands on right at this minute (mainly 'cos I can't be bothered to go looking - if anyone is desperate to know leave me a comment and I'll track it down for you later).

Lovely job on your mail art, Anne!

Sorry to read about the expensive beads - I was wondering if these were diamonds until I read a little further in your post. Dreaded parking tickets!

Very pretty mailart! I'm sure Zohrah will love it. Things going to Singapore seem to be hitting a black hole lately. Yikes!

That is gorgeous Anne! I was pleased to see Zorah's comment that she had received it safely. Hey, keep an eye out for the next issue of Threadlines from the Guild. Last week I was showing the ladies my mail art envelope from Danielle, and they were so excited over it, one of them scanned a photo of it, did a quick write-up about mail-art and pounced on the editor, who was at the monthly committee meeting that day. It was the deadline for the next issue so we just got it in. The Guild are having a Christmas Mail art exchange! Wanda is worried that it will just be her and me, but I said I know another member who will probably participate...YOU!
