Postcard Exchange

March 28, 2008

MQR has had another postcard exchange that I was privileged enough to participate in. I say privileged enough even though it is open to all members, as I feel honored to receive these beauties in the mail. And I can only hope that my outgoing postcards are enjoyed half as much as I enjoy the ones I receive.

Our theme this time was your birthstone/gemstone.

In no particular order:

Jami, whose birthday is in July (Ruby):

Michelle who celebrates a November birthday (Blue Topaz):

Gayle, who just celebrated a March birthday (Aquamarine):

And Shirley, another July celebration (Ruby):

Aren’t these all wonderful fiber postcards?

I have no pictures of mine, but I’ll explain the concept I used. My stone, being born in October, is an Opal. Now when I think of opals, I think of the fire and ice (blue and red) that sparkle inside of them. To represent fire, I chose a sunset fabric in reds, oranges, and yellows. To represent the ice, I chose a water fabric and placed a sparkling glacier floating in it. To make the glacier sparkle, I used a combination of angelina and tinzel fibers, some tulle, and glitter thread. And I’m realize now, I should have taken a photo before I mailed them out. Lesson learned.
