Wool Postcard


I saw that one of the february Swap Bot fabric postcard swap themes was Wool - as usual my inner voice said 'I can do that' so I have - the background is machine felted with a mixture of wool tops as are the flower and leaves I then, with great trepidation, lowered the feed dogs on my machine and added some free machine stitching (or embroidery) hopefully this will soon improve as next week I start a F M embroidery on line course - should be interesting.

Well done Maureen for stepping outside your comfort zone. You'll be fine on the free machine course - your postcard is excellent and I love it.
