It was for fabric postcards. I hadn't heard of these before but since I have seen more and more out there in blogland. I didn't know the rules but I do now...LOL
My swap partner was a lady who lived in Berwick upon Tweed in England. She wasn't a blogger so I was a bit tentative as to what to do and what she would like. I couldn't visit and spy....drat.
This is what I sent her......
I thought I would do something that was Canadianish.....hence the North American Robin. Our robins are very different than the robins found in Britain. The embroidery pattern is from Sublime Stitching and is based on the artwork of Ryan Berkley. I faffed around with this thing for ages and ended up just putting the head onto the card. I did have a print of an old fashioned postcard on the back but I forgot to take a picture of it.
I was also supposed to send a postcard showing where I lived.....
I used to work on the 50th floor of one of the tall office buildings to the right of the CN Tower....I had a fabulous view of Lake Ontario:)
Now my swap partner wrote me a lovely letter and she did do a bit of research on me so her postcard is totally me....it's purple and has a mouse on it:)
She also sent me a map and some postcards.....
I think my hubby wants the map...maybe I'll give it to him.
