Mailart Finally Arrived

I was close to sending a private investigator to find the postman to make sure he had plans on delivering the mailart I stitched for Margaret in Malaysia. Finally received word she received it. *Whew!*

I actually finished this on July 23rd, but couldn't show it until now because it was a "secret" exchange. The theme for the exchange was "roses" and this is what I came up with:


Design: Rose Monogram (Front)
Rose Garland (Back)
Designer: Alma Lynne*
Fabric: 28ct Antique
White Evenweave
Fibers: DMC
Embellishments: Pearl Snaps,
Rose-print Lining Fabric
Date: 7/23/09

Very nice mailart. I should try it someday. I'm glad it's cooling down where you live. We are warming up now. It feels like summer with hot and humid weather. I looked at the Japanese Garden WIP. It looks really nice so far. I was like oh this won't take too long to stitch and then I scrolled down to see the full item and saw it's a Martina Weber. Her mystery projects are beautiful but overwhelming. I have a few in my someday stash...lol.

Beautiful Mail Art piece. Glad she finally got it, I'd have been so stressed wondering if it had been lost in the mail.

Beautiful mailart, Meari! I don't quite have the guts to send a stitched piece through the postal system, but I might consider trying it some time...
