Phew it arrived


My mailart to Lena-Lou arrived safe and sound today, I tried to fit around the things that Helen likes, the birdhouse on the front of the envelope is a Cedar Hills design, which I added tiny buttons and changed the colours. The back of the envelope is a mixture of different things, there is Marsha her cat, and a garden with different flowers in and of course a bee skep and some butterflies (stitched 1/1).

Its all stitched on 28ct linen banding and I used DMC linen threads for it all. My pics were a bit of a rush job as I wanted to get it into the post so I scanned the mailart instead of photographing it and of course they are much too bright and not very clear, if you visit Lena-Lou she has taken and posted some much nicer pics than me. Glad that you loved it H!!!xxx
