Textile Corner - "Happy as a Clam"

Some of us have been participating in a mini quilt exchange at Postcard Pizzazz and look what showed up in my mail box yesterday. A lovely bargello. Aren't I the lucky one :)
It came from Mary Lou and it is her first exchange. She expressed concern about her hand stitching but I think she did well. It's called clamshell. On the back she used fabric with sparkly silver fir cones. (I love sparkly fabric.)
So thanks Mary Lou. We did not do direct swaps so my subdued "Dutchman's Breeches" are winging their way to Tasmania. I realised after I sent it that I forgot to put a label on the back. Aaaargh. I'll just have to send another mailing :)

They are beautiful! I love it when postcards like that arrive in the mail. I have collected tons of them over the years.

Would you like to do a swap :)
