Mailart Exchange!

Here is my darling mailart piece which my partner, Jane Click, sent from Washington, DC. I'm so grateful for all her work and thoughtfulness! She chose the lily of the valley pattern from a French cross stitching magazine. They are so sweet and delicately worked on natural linen. The inside is lined with pink and white checked fabric. I think it's overall appearance has a fresh and springtime feel. I don't know if you can see the spots of pink in the lilies!

This is just fantastic! Lucky you! I was just looking at Mail Art on someone else's blog too and I'm soooooo taken with these. *Mail Art added to the 'to do' list* lol.

Do they get sent in a plastic packet, or are the stamps just stuck onto the fabric? I'd be worried they got dirty or ripped or something, but yours looks fab, considering it's been through countless mail workers mitts, :D

This looks just wonderful Deb. I have often admired the Mail Art projects that I´ve seen at blogs. Hope you have a nice weekend.

Julie, The whole thing about mailart is that they be sent in reality by mail with the stamping on the piece itself! But, I'm sort of with you, I would be sad to get the piece stained and ruined!! This one came in perfectly. It must have gotten alot of TLC...
Hugs,
Deb

Deb - it's gorgeous, and Jane did a lovely job.

I just read on Vonna's blog that you are ill, and in hospital. Although I'm not a regular reader of your blog, I read it occasionally, and wanted to send you {{{hugs}}} for a speedy recovery.

Jeanne said...

I'm also sending you warmest wishes for a speedy recovery Deb! I enjoy your blog so much and I'm sorry to hear you are so ill. Get well quick.
{{hugs}}

So glad you liked it Deb!! Thanks for all the kind words - from you and your lovely blog readers. What a nice blog, it's my first visit. I hope you feel better soon!

My lovely post woman is a veteran of accepting these from me. The first few I would have to convince her that yes, I really do want to mail it as is, no I don't want to put them in something else. She was so cute with this one, trying to find just the right stamp to coordinate that wasn't Star Wars or a Liberty Bell. I had one envelope that took a week but in general they get through the mail quite safely, buttons and all. Anyway this was a fun exchange, looking forward to the next!

I got the word that you are/were at the hospital with an infection. Honey, I hope you are home and feeling better than ever very soon. You are in my thoughts! *hugs*

I also heard that you are "under the weather"... I hope you have a speedy recovery and are able to feel well enough to stitch! I'm sure stitching aids in healing.

Margie said...

I hope you are feeling better soon! :-)

Hi Deb, thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment, isn't the web wonderful when used like this. We can become friends although we've never 'met' and share our passion for the Lord and for our stitching. I've been richly blessed with my online friends and hope to meet many more. Your blog is wonderful to read thank you for sharing

hugs Peg :o)
