February – International Correspondence Letter Writing Month

Standard

As it says in my header, February is ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month’. To take part in this you commit to sending a letter, card or note to someone every day during the month. It’s not as expensive as it sounds, you can write local and hand deliver if you want. What a lovely challenge. I’m doing good so far!

1st & 2nd Feb.

It’s nice to think of someone who won’t be expecting it! πŸ™‚

Stitched Textile Postcards

Standard

These are some textile cards I sent out recently, I made them using stitching and stamping on painted fabric.

I sent out two to Postcrossers, Jamie in USA and Richarda in Germany, both said they enjoyed recieving handmade cards.

I sent another to a penfriend in Netherlands

and included one in an art swap to my friend Nancy in America.

They all seem to have gone down quite well, so I think I’m going to make some more! πŸ™‚
