A Stitch in TIME















When I first started blogging i joined in lots of swaps, it was a good way for me to get to meet other crafters and bloggers and a chance to create and in return receive some happy mail!
I spotted Beth's Stitched Postcard swap over on Cath's blog
i knew I had to join in...it was simple, create a Postcard with 'Time' theme, that includes some stitching.

I found an old vintage page in my pile of papers...'The Tea Shop'
and instantly thought of making time in the day for some Tea so went with that....i also added some Ipswich bus tickets and an Australian stamp and I cut out a floral paper teacup and added random hand stitching and machine stitching! ...wonky but cute!
Its on its way to Lori in the USA - hope she likes it!

if anyone knows of any good swaps going on, do let me know....
