I am in an ATC (Artist trading card 2.5" x 3.5") exchange group in Stitchtalk. We exchange 1:1 each month. There are about 10 of us in the group and we are spread across the globe. So fun to receive a little package from England. For October I decided to try something I hadn't done for awhile. I made mine using needle punch. I have to admit I had forgotten how to thread the special needle used in this technique. It's amazing what you can find online though, and I easily found video's, patterns and more. Since it is fall here and Halloween is in October, I went with a pumpkin design for the needle punch and some Halloween fabric for the back.
Here is the lovely ATC I received from Mandy in England. She used silk ribbon embroidery which I just love but have never tried. It is called Autumn Blush. Might have to try this myself soon.
The suggested November theme is Remembrance or Veterans Day. I'm thinking thread painting might be a good choice for this month. I need to start thinking about December too. We are sending to everyone in December, so something that can be done in quantity, yet still show how much I appreciate each of these little treasures.
Have a Creative Day
