Over the next 9 days you will see postcards that look very similar to each other - yes a series - I made this piece of felt (below) incorporating other fabrics on a course about 2 years ago and the piece has been hanging around for ages. It was going to be a hanging but I have disliked it for ages.
So I stitched into it and then dyed it over New Year - I don't really like the resulting colour, it went a bit pastel with greyish tones so I have cut it up into 9 postcard sized pieces and over the next 9 days will do stuff with each. One card size piece does actually look quite nice as it is so that may turn out to be the first of 9. When they are successful in my eyes they will be used for a couple of swaps I'm in - definitely for the 'texture' swap - they even come under the 'recycle' theme too! So watch out those of you who are in these swaps (you know who you are!) you'll see the piece here first.
I am asking this question on some of the groups I belong to - just to confirm in my own mind how I should post postcards. Can I send them 'in the nude' ie not in an envelope, not in a clear plastic/cellophane sleeve to everywhere, UK, Europe, Australia and USA/Canada? Our local post office does not know what 'hand cancelling' is.
So far I have just written on the postcard, added the appropriate weight/size postage and popped them into the local letter box and kept my fingers crossed. Any advise??
