Post Cards from the Selv-edge

The latest postcard. It is interesting to see the progression of these small fiber works and try and guess who has done what to them. Some of the people who are involved, I know quite well and can guess at what they have added, and others I have never met.

As the cards go from hand to hand, we all try and put our stamp on them. So far, I have been very cautious. There are 14 people who are going to be altering these and I haven't wanted to do too much and make the next persons job to difficult. I heard a few people mutter complaints about this one as being too busy and having a hard time deciding what to do.

After a little chat with one of the others in the group, I am going to try and be a little less cautious and a little more experimental. We will see how I manage.

I still haven't received my next card. The woman that passes them on to me hasn't had it yet either. I hope that it is not lost in the mail......

Looks like a water theme again. I love the color and diving looks like a cool thing to do in hot clammy weather. Is she diving for pearls or a star?

I just got a pearl necklace, bracelet,and a pair of earring from Curious Llama. Could that be Curious Llama diving?

What happens to these things once they have done the round? Do they get sent back to the first person? How do you find out who has done what to your piece?

They all get given back to the person that started them and we are going to have a gallery show.
