Mail art #11 Arrived!




And news of one more arriving! This one is to Dawn in the USA. This exchange from Mailartfriends was themed on tea and coffee. I used a mill hill kit , I love these kits and mostly stitch the Christmas ones, but here was a great opportunity to stitch the cappuccino one. The envelope was heavier as it had beads on it, but seems to have arrived with the beads intact! This means more fun for embellishing the mail art envelopes!


Mail art #10 Arrived!

The mail art to Janet arrived! Always so nervous with these, you wonder if they will arrive safely, and when they do you are so happy!


The design on this one is from Stitcher's World magazine March 2001 issue designed by Kandace Thomas called "Black Crow Sampler". I adapted it so it would fit on the mail art envelope and used my own colou choices.





In this MA I also stitched the lining of it.

Mail art #13





Postman came!!!!! And brought another mail art! Its a beautiful cross stitched envelope from Dawn in the USA. This exchange from Mailartfriends was themed on tea and coffee.







The design is from Lizzie Kate, one of the designers I love, called "Love my coffee" from the coffee crazy trio.
cute teapot and cup on the front

The contents are such a delight, wonderful tea and a scissor decoration ( I do not know the name of this, comments to add the correct name is appreciated, Thank you Meari, she was first to reply= its a scissor fob! ) with a cute frog to guard me from stitching mistakes!


On the front, where the envelope closes, are these great silver teapot and cup.
Thank you Dawn for this lovely exchange!

Alex and homework

This is my 7 years old's doodle she drew tonight. That's her on the right calling for help and the hand is the teacher (on the left), isn't this picture full of humour? Its called "Trouble with Homework" and by the looks of the hair, its really troublesome.
