I have had a wonderful time to-day working on more embellished postcards. The Birch trees were a first for me and I like the results very much.The beading and embroidery by hand and machine addsuch dimension. Can you tell I LOVE doing french knots!!;-}

If you are interested, these are for sale in my Etsy Shop

I think your birch tree trunks are exquisite - I had to enlarge them to take a look at how you managed them - very effective

Maggie, your paintings are beautiful. I enlarged them to really see what you were doing and they are lovely. I love to make french knots too. I used to candlewick a lot.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
