The first picture is of the flowers that I swapped and received from the Quarterly Ribbon/Cloth Flower Swap that I host with the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group. Thank you Holly, Jody, Mary, Julie Anne and Martica. Everyone's flowers were so beautiful and all so different. The second picture is of the flowers that I made for the swap.

I also did a barter with my friend Dawn, she is part of the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group and lives in England, this is what she sent me, she is such a talented artist, these are her own paintings of Marie, she put them on Canvas and cotton for me, sent me these beautiful papers and also a beautiful bookmark. She has a wonderful Etsy shop , you really need to visit, she makes beautiful things. The second picture is some of the stamped images on cloth that I sent her. Thank you so much Dawn, I can't wait to create with your beautiful images.

Hey Terri! Those are gorgeous! I really want to learn how to make these flowers, especially like the ones that you made which I am currently obsessed with. Your links on the Marie group are fab and I recently purchased the book "Ribbonwork: The Complete Guide". I hope to be a part of that swap soon! Thanks for sharing all you do and for the inspiration you're continuously give me. I have been working on my fabric heart and can't wait for you to see it! Oh, and yes, that Dawn is SO talented! xoxo Rhonda...

Thank you for becoming a follower, it's always nice to have people stop by.

I am in the tea cup swap too. You have given and received some truly lovely things.

I thought I would come back and have another look round now I have more time. SO glad I did. The flowers you made/received are stunning and Dawn is SO good at drawing.

It's lovely to hear about the group you belong to. I have just finished posting something for tomorrow with the lady herself.

The images you sent off on material were GORGEOUS love anything to do with Paris (how can one not?) any way enough babbling from me for now I'll be back to take another look soon

Love Dawn xx
