Postcards....


Just to prove I haven't forgotten my friends, I've been making more postcards...partly at a play day at Helen Howes' studio, with an interesting mix of people. Helen started us off, asking us to make a postcard with a line and a dot, using anything we could find in the studio...so I made the green piece to the left of the picture. The piece next to it, is the same green handdyed cloth, but with a scrap of some lovely fabric that Heather was working with. She kindly let me have some bits and pieces of fabric to take home, so doubtless it will feature in future cards!

Mostly, though, I played with stitch, and the other picture shows another set of cards, all made from the same fabric, a handdyed polycotton. No matter how often I do this kind of thing, like making small pieces, there's always something new to learn. Thank goodness! How boring life would be if we knew it all!! I think what I discovered yesterday, was that there is a use for small scale commercial prints, other than traditional blocks...they work really well in postcard sized pieces. I don't possess very much of that kind of thing (if any...), so perhaps a bit of swapping is in order, some handdyes for some small prints...hmmm...
