Postcard received and update of Lace technique

Today I received a lovely surprise in the mail. A few weeks ago I left a comment on Karen's blog and won a prize. With everything else happening around here I completely forgot about it, then today this attractive postcard turned up. Thank you Karen. I have played with the colours for ages, but I cannot get them right. Thebackground is a much deeper purple than this and the pink circles are not nearly as pink.

Yesterday I was posting in too much of a hurry and my eyesight must be even worse than I thought, the second photo I showed was not the lace fabric at all - it was my take on the product of the month which Dale sent me - silk rods and fibres etc and some lovely spray colour. I have added some leaves to it as well. I have posted the photo again so you don't have to scroll back and forth and I have posted the photos in the wrong order - I was going to put the painted lace up first, never mind.

For the product of the month, Dale sends out a parcel of goodies each month to try out, so we don't have to buy large amounts of something just to try - lots of fun.
The colours of both pieces ended up being quite similar, though they started off vey different - that is part of the fun.

I hope everyone has a very happy Easter. Cheers

  1. Gorgeous postcard Robin. The lace and the product of the month piece really do co-ordinate well. As for the wrong photo yesterday, just pretend that you were having a blonde moment.

  2. I'm glad you liked the postcard -- I had trouble with the colors too -- it's washed out-looking on my blog.

    The lace fabric is really pretty -- can't wait to see the glasses case.
