To Germany Unscathed

The postal system must've been on high speed delivery! I received news that my partner in Germany received the mailart I stitched for her. Here's what I sent Judith:

Does it look familiar? It should! It's very similar to the one I made for my Mom. :) I call it Asian Mailart #2, lol.


Designs from book "A Cross Stitcher's Oriental Odyssey" by Joan Elliott
Fabric: 18ct Antique White Aida
Fibers: DMC
Embellishments: Pink fabric lining, Asian coin, and snaps

It looks just great! In Cross Stitcher was just a free booklet full of Joan Elliott's lovely designs. I received recently a personal letter from her when I required after one of her earlier designs. I'm going to stitch a teapot clock that she designed.

Wow..that was fast mail service! Sometimes I am amazed at how fast international mail is delivered! I sold some back issues of Cross Country Stitching on e-bay to a gal in Holland and she had them in 5 days! Amazing!

That envelope is fabulous!

Very, very lovely! Did you sew the snaps on or use a thing like a riveter (can't remember the name)? Your finishes are always great!

Donna said...
