I've been working on this last set of shibori sea cards, that I'm calling Spring Shibori Sea, over the past week. I had a lot of the yellow sky bits thatwas enough for 14 of these cards! I'll be all set for our Airbnb guests next Spring. One of my recent guests, Jessica, comes here pretty regularly with her son to mountain bike and when she came last week she told me that she loves her cards and has them all on display in her house. That makes me very happy. The bright colors in this set of cards makes me very happy too.
I've been playing around with different sky stitching for each set of cards. On these I stitched straight lines in different designs. I don't really have a favorite design. Do you have a favorite? I like all of them and I really like the effect of the Superior Glitter thread. It's pretty finicky to sew with but worth it in the end. It's got great sparkle. Of course I have just about every color they made. I'll never use it all up.
In my ongoing efforts to purge some things from my all of my Drawers/Cabinets/Bins of Magical Things, I found something else that I'm thinking about turning into postcards so I might have even more to share soon. I really need to switch gears and start thinking about some Christmas designs but my head just can't go there yet.
