I recently joined two groups : Arttechniques and artisttradingcards.
The first to try my hand on new techniques, the second to finally try and make ATC’s.
I never made one ATC, do you believe it ?
I will have to read what size and in what kind of material those are made.
I even don’t know if those are send in an envelop or like a postcard. I imposed myself a new challenge and I love it.
I will make some to trade in Houston during the festival, I think I have read somewhere that there would be a trading place for ATC’s.

My quilt ‘Marseille V’ is taking shape, I have included some pictures of the first round of stitches, I didn’t even take the time to cut the loose threads !

I also finished my agenda cover :
I will make some more to give as Christmas present. Fun to make and it is a personal present.
Today I had a call from my Husqvarna dealer who told me he will receive the Designer Diamond and that I could see the machine on October, 20th during the official presentation. I’m very curious because the comments in the yahoo-group are positive. Now I also have an idea of the price and I’m positively surprised ! I really thought that I would first saw the machine in Houston during the expo.

Nathalie! ATCs are great fun to make out of paper or fabric. I think you will enjoy the new challenge.

I also hope you have received my email and the first Lesson for the Fabric workshop by now, please let me know.

Thank you, Lenna
