ATC from Mary Lou

This beautiful ATC was waiting for me when I got home from the Gallery and the weekly shop.
Just beautiful! Thank you Mary Lou.
It will go on my main site under the heading 'Received ATC's'

The jacket had been beautifully pieced but some of the sheer scarf pieces were starting to fray and would unravel the equiste embroidery and because some where on pockets and sleeves could not be put under the machine so we set to with a chain stitch with a similar thread. Perfect.

I did manage to do a little machining and worked on an ATC in black, white and ........... will post the finished one tomorrow!!!!

I would like to send my best wishes and thoughts to Judy, Haydn and family at this time.


Tuesday at The Gallery 9th Feb 2010

Took all the art stuff to do black and white plus colour of choice (pink and blue, I could'nt decide at the time) for the new ATC challenge and to show Gallery visitors the Artist Trading Cards from around the world and that art could be beautiful,small and can be achieved in their short visit. Also collage work of mine that combined the medias of paper,textile,paint and print.
One of the ladies who had tried the embellishing the week before had brought her finished card with it into show us. it was beautiful but like a true artist she thought it needed something else and wan't quite right but would work on it. It was beautiful! she had embroidered Dorset buttons and included gold work on it too!
Another visitor brought in this jacket, it was a thrift shop find and had originally been made in India. Amazing embroidered sections all crazywork pieced together. Beautiful. The lady had brought it in to see if she could embellish the frayed ends in or what stitch to use.
