Christmas Swap with Ann (Trillian)
I have finally managed to get my swaps up to date and I thank Anne (Trillian) for being patient with me... I have taken longer to recover from my pre Christmas surgery than I had expected!
Anne's whimsical card was such a delight to receive; I wish I could draw!!!
This delightful reindeer has been coloured using oil pastel on the fabric, the outlines and details with free motion stitching.
The card I sent to her was seasonal "sequins" and beading over a black and gold fabric...there was a little 'snow' tossed in for good measure (this was created by using a white charcoal pencil - which is great for marking dark fabrics for hand quilting)
Happy New Year,
