Quiltie, Postcard

The theme this month for Unlimited Textiles was Latin American flavor. This was done on the Embellisher with a knit piece cut up-the dark piece-and other fibers. It is machined with metallic threads and bordered with hand stitching in metallic. I used running stitch on two sides and chain stitch on the other two. Here is November's postcard for the Calendar Girls exchange. http://calendargirls2008.blogspot.com The vase and leaves are Ultrasuede, the stems hand stitched, and I had these cool flower beads to use to make the flowers.

Just been catching up with your posting Sandy - you've been doing some really super stuff while I've not been looking. Love the Quiltie - and the postcard of course. I keep missing the signup days for the Quiltie - perhaps I might catch the next one!!

Fab work as always Sandy.
I love the colours in the quiltie and the flowers on the postcard are just lovely.
