The next one was sent off to Annie of Freezeframe and again I must thank Annie for this picture .
A Christmas dove for this one . Thanks ladies for swapping with me . Did everyone in the swap recieve their postcards now? Thanks to those who participated.
Now I would like to tell you about a little swap I did with a friend on FB. Christina and I became acquainted through my son Robert , he also follows her fb page where she shares a daily photo . Christina is an awesome photographer and one of her favorite subjects is horses which I love . It seems she had been admiring my little landscape postcards I posted now and then on fb and one day she asked if I sold them and if so would I sell one to her as she wished to frame it . Since I don't really sell them it came to me that perhaps we could do a swap , a postcard for a photo of a horse , to my surprise she immediately agreed . I was so excited and we discussed and exchanged addresses and I set about deciding on what to make . I went through my fabrics and as often happens they just spoke to me and I came up with this simple little scene . I can't believe it but again I forgot to take a photo of what I sent to her so this was taken by Christina
This is actually larger than postcard size , probably 6x8 . It is made with all hand dyed fabrics and simple straight line quilting. Now the best part of this story is yet to come , it seems that Christina had taken a picture of our son when he was a member of the Musical Ride years ago . I knew Rob had met her but wasn't sure whether she had any pictures of him so was thrilled when this photo arrived in the mail .
Such an awesome picture of an awesome son ! She did send along another photo of a horse but this is the one that really made my heart swell with pride. An exchange well worth having for sure !
I will not likely get back here before Christmas so before I go I want to wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas, may it be filled with joy and all the best the season may bring.
