MailArt



I posted out my U.K. mailart yesterday as part of the stitch & stash mailart exchange, the theme was to be snowmen, so I feel safe in posting up my pictures of the front and back today. The design was taken from Erica Micheals January 2004 freebies, I changed the colour of the scarf and shortened it a bit to fit the envelope as it was a tadge too long, I also had to use my own choice of threads - whats new I hear you say!! So its all done with DMC in bright clours. The back are just my own design of snowflakes with a couple of buttons added, I fastened it up using whip stitch so that it was safe to send in the UK mail..... And Oooh its on 28ct mid blue linen

This is a great design that's on my to-stitch list... and it won't take long!!! Your snow flakes are very beautiful, and I like the additions you've made! The fabric is very very beautiful! I wish we could find some like this here in France!
