Some weeks ago I received a lovely parcel from Barbara in Germany with a great hat I had admired on her Rainbow blog + some little goodies so as a thank you I made her an Australian Fabric PostCard + sent some Collections chipboard cutouts that I hope she will have fun with [Collections is Australian]. I had hand stitched the PostCard + added some beading but I must remember next time not to put the beading sooo close to the edge cause when you machine edge it the needle & foot don't like beads ... ha ha The one above is the one I sent Barbara & this is another one I made.My DH wanted to know did I make a mistake with the water on the Qld coastline - drrr that's our wonderful Great Barrier Reef man.I suppose he was only 'trying' to be helpful/constructive...I've just been over to Linda's blog Q and I was so surprised to see she had made some Australian Fabric PostCards as well & around about the same time as me, how is that for a coincidence - love the Aboriginal Art Fabric ... ummm I have some of that in my stash too... I think it is quite funny that some of my Aboriginal Art Fabrics + my Australian Icon Fabrics come from New Zealand - like what's that about ... so do I look for Maori Art Fabric in Oz? - I'm on the lookout for some Paua Shell Fabric ... now do I ask my NZ daughter to look for it or do I look for it here - I wonderrrrrrr ...... ohh the idiosyncrasies' of life ...

Hi Bethel,
Your postcards are gorgeous; I love the sun with its rays. What a coincidence that we have made such similar postcards! Would you like to swap one?
Cheers,
Linda
