I received two sets of patches on Saturday and both are terrific! I am slow to post pics because I was trying to get better pics. Finally I decided to go with what I had, it is better to post imperfect pictures, than not to post at all.
First from FrankSpinello. They took a long time to arrive, but were so worth the wait. She created two patches for my Tiny House theme (and an adorable Tiny House card), and an EXTRA for my black, red, and white theme. I am spoiled.
Could these be any cuter?
And this house, is free form and will make an excellent statement on my project--just as soon as I decide what it will be. I know what I will do with the red, white, and black patch, that is going into a journal cover. I hope to get to that soon.
From KriSmith I received more beautiful patches in multiple themes. Kris has really developed a personal style for her patches and I can't wait to receive once I know that she has claimed me.
First up a Tiny House that is tilting so cutely and another for my red, white, and black theme. Now I surely have enough for my journal cover. I love the stitching.
Kris and I were claiming and personal swapping at the same time and I lost track of which was which. Since this is an audience that really likes their patches, I thought I would show the rest of them here.
I definitely got spoiled by these beautiful patches. I love the colors, textures, subjects, and stitching. Who could ask for more.
Here they are together:
I love Steampunk and here are two for that theme, one a more colorful interpretation than you usually see and the other with attached gears. I love them both.
This one fits several of my themes. I love the tiny jars and whimsical stitching,
Look at how the blocks of text repeat the square shapes in the fabric and how the orange buttons deliver such a color punch. There is so much art in these patches!
Thank you both for claiming me, I am so lucky. I think we should start signing these with an initial or symbol of some sort, they are so special.
