ATCs Finished for EAC Swap

I barely scraped in under the deadline for taking part in the Embroidery Association of Canada's annual ATC swap but I got some done and have sent them away.  I love this annual swap and have taken part for several years now.  If you would like more info on EAC (Embroidery Association of Canada), or would like to browse through the photos of ATCs from previous year's swaps, head on over to the EAC website.

I made eight ATCs for the swap this year.  They are all done in bridal fabrics - I am really into using up that stash at the moment.  Three blue tubs of wedding dresses seems a little excessive, not that these ATCs made much of a dent! 

 This year's cards are just basic crazy quilting with seam stitching only, other than a few pearls, a bit of tatting and some lace. 
I only used two different threads on the cards - a green silk and a variegated perle.  I was going with a monochromatic thing on most of them.  So, these  are winging their way to Halifax to be swapped out now.

This last one is not in the swap - it is on it's way to a dear lady who is having a hard time right now.  I hope it will give her a smile when she opens her mail.
