Postcards - April 2007

Trapunto Swap

This postcard has been sent to Myla Chapman in the USA. I haven't done trapunto for years, so I did enjoy doing this swap. I have done it in the old traditional method of threading and filling in with needle and yarn. I believe there are a few different ways of doing Trapunto now, which I may have to investigate and try them out on more P/Cs.

This is another Trapunto P/C made for Rose Anne in Canada. Again I have used the old traditional technique for this one as well. Although on this one I didn't have any wadding between the front and the backing, I just filled in the sections I wanted to raise up.

The second picture shows the dense bead work in the middle.
