It was one of those "I'll have what she's having" moments, only better.
The afternoon was drawing on, so it was time to open our postcards. I was absolutely delighted to receive my card from Loani, who has regular art exhibitions. Now I have my own piece of her original artwork and I love it.
Muffin makes the most superb heirloom hexagon quilts using Liberty fabrics, so she received a postcard which echoed her beautiful work.
On our recent trip to Paris, we came across this restaurant and as one of our members is Margot and it was my turn to give her a postcard, it was the obvious choice. I worked on it in Photoshop, blending two images, and then printed it out on fabric.
I am kicking myself for not taking photos of the other cards, because they were wonderful - including a classic women's pushbike (and there's a tale behind that one!), a brilliant interpretation of work by the artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, and many more. Blame it on the heat and the sugar rush. However, here are a couple from earlier times.
Time for coffee (or healthy green tea) and some shortbread before hitting the heat waiting for us outside.
So what keeps us together? Loose Threads.
