Over the last couple days I have received six Artist Trading Cards (aka ATCs) in the mail for the six I sent in for the 2010 Embroidery Association of Canada ATC Swap. I couldn't wait to take pictures of the ones I received and show them off here!
This first one came from Judith Best, who belongs to the Quinte Needlearts Guild in Ontario. It is Sashiko-Hirasan-Kuzushi.
This next one is by T.K.Torme of Vancouver, British Columbia. The tiny cross stitch on this is delightful.
This colourful piece of art was made by Deb Blackmore, also of Ontario. This is just as textural as it looks, all these fibers are held in place by the metallic threads.
Bonnie Cook from Norfolk's Own Needlearts Guild made this lovely bouquet of flowers, above.
The fifth one, above, was stitched by Sandra Jupp of Simcoe County Embroidery Guild in Ontario. It is lovely counted thread work embellished with beads for added sparkle.
Last, but by no means least, the sixth ATC I received is lovely silk ribbon embroidery and was created by Liz Wilken in Ontario.
I would like to send a big thank you to the ladies who made these beautiful ATCs - I will treasure them. I love that EAC does this swap every year!
