It was fascinating to see how people from so many different geographic locations, cultures and backgrounds interpreted the theme 'home'. I was stunned by the gorgeous creations that were made with such care and sent out across the world to brighten up the day of a complete stranger. You can see some of these in the random snapshot below, and there are more in the Flickr group here. You can also learn more about some of the people involved by checking out their blogs - all listed here.
I received a lovely quirky postcard from Wendy of Inner Graffiti. A little while before I had posted mine off to Marianne of SewRuffhaven in the USA. Here's mine, made with fabric, ribbon, stamps, a metal charm, tissue paper, handmade khadi paper and stitch. What do you think?
Thank you so much to everyone who took part. I hope you enjoyed making your postcard and receiving a piece of hand-stitched loveliness in the post! If you blogged about it please share your link below so we can all pop over and have a look.
Look out for the next Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap in early Spring next year...
