Autumn/Fall fabric postcards.

Two more textile postcards arrived today - these are from the Stitchin Fingers Group who are exchanging FPCS with an Autumn/Fall theme. This one is from Robbie, here in Melbourne:
And this is from Leslie in the U.K.:
I've been working frantically on mine to get them done this month, and I finally got eight finished last night. The only reason I haven't done the ninth one required is because I ran out of all the fabrics I was using! So the last one will be completely different from these. I'm a bit disappointed in my cards when I see the glorious autumn colours on the cards I've received so far, but I didn't want to have to buy fabrics just for these cards, so I had to use whatever I had on hand, which were mostly in shades of green, brown, red, and orange. I started stitching a leaf on each one, but changed over to an applique leaf when I saw what Barbara had done on the first one I received. I showed mine to a friend today, and she was very impressed, so I just hope the recipients will be happy with them too!
