Two small completions tonight.

These two are for Stitchin' Fingers swaps: A fabric postcard for Joy's birthday this month. This one incorporates a piece of a necktie - the brightly coloured bit. The other plain and small floral bits are scraps of fabric I had in a bag. Please note my newly acquired skill with Cretan stitch - not yet perfect, but at least it is recognisable! (If you still can't pick it, they are the dark blue and the light green seam embellishment stitches. The red seam embellishment stitch is detached chain stitch.) and my ATC for the July swap in the ATC Group. The theme was 'Purple - passionately purple!" so I gave this all I had. Every scrap from my stash of anything purple is in this ATC. I hope Sheila in Scotland isn't overpowered by it!!

The ATC is gorgeous. Amazing the effect you can get just using one colour
