While I was in Omaha I had the pleasure of receiving two very special pieces of art from fabric artist Martha Green. I wish I could link you to a web site or a blog featuring her work but I don't think she has one yet. But there was a rumor going around that she may be thinking of getting one! I hope so because I love her work and would like to see more of it!

I have to admit until now I've kind of just ignored all the post card sites and swaps ..... thinking I was just too busy to join in the fun. But now after seeing these up close and in person I'm going to give them a try.

I'd appreciate any tips on constuction that you my great readers may have to get me started .... please leave me a comment if you have made them before and let me know how you do them! Thanks in advance for all your help!

Those are really great! I especially like the bottom one. How fortunate you are to have two!

I've made several for swaps, but just followed directions that came in a magazine article, from McCall's maybe? Or Asian Fabrics, I think. And things my friends told me.

On Ami Simms' site:

For cq ones, I do the stitching before fusing to the peltex or whatever, of course. =)

here's how I do my postcard backs Karen. Not sure what the fast2fuse is, but I use doublesided fusible 'stuff' (heat'n'bond), and use that to hold all my raw edges under, as well as attching a backing. My sewing machine and I do not work well enough together for me to zigzag or buttonhole the edges!
