Stitched postcard swap


This is another “how did I not know about this?” moment.

When flicking through Facebook I came across an entry by Coats Crafts UK about the 7th stitched postcard swap and it caught my interest.

It’s an international swap and the main rules are to keep the size to postcard size, use the theme create and there must be some form of stitching on it. If you want to be entered into the giveaway then (before posting your postcard) photograph it and upload to their FB page.

All the information and links you need is here —> Registration ends on 25th February 2014.

Last year I took part in a postcard exhibition which was fun, especially trying to keep it to that size.

Look what i won!

Oh yes I’m a very lucky girl. I know it’s meant to be gloomy Monday but I seem to be bucking the trend. Ignoring my electricity bill I’ve met up with a friend, started work on a new piece, got my free Make Tea Not War mug from Miso Funky, received fabulous heart cello-tape from Magic Alice and then the Tweet I’d won arrived! Phew and it’s not even 4pm!

The other week Feltmeupdesigns ran a giveaway and I came second winning a tweet of my choice! This is the cheeky chappy I chose.

I’ve wanted one of her hand felted birds for a long time but somehow never seemed to have the money to buy one. Now I’ve got one I think he needs a partner but which one up choose..?

I dare you to look at her ETSY and Folksy sites and not fall for them too


And the winner is…
