Shades of Autumn on a card and a award

I've mailed off another item from my list in order to beat the postal strike here in the U.K. which is due to start tomorrow barring any last minute negotiations (fingers crossed, everyone!!!)

This fabric postcard was made in reply to a call for contributions in a German language quilting magazine: Patchwork & Quiltjournal, published in Vienna. The fabric postcards are going to be sold in aid of research into cystic fibrosis during an exhibition in Morzine-Avoriaz in France, July 2010. It took me awhile to figure out that this was what the German word mucoviscidose translates as! Anyway if you are interested in participating, all you have to do is make a fabric postcard with a paper backing and send it in an envelope to:

Caty Richard, Art du Quilt
428 Route d'Avoriaz,
F-74110 Morzine-Avoriaz

I choose to make my postcard in autumnal shades as you can tell, with a woven background. Eight inchies were added and also some lovely star charms.

By chance I was also the happy recipient of a blog award from Lenna , called The Deborah Award, with the following statement attached: "Friendship isn't about who you have know the longest, but who came and never left your side". I deeply appreciate both the words as well as the award, Lenna!! The award came with a beautiful image of an autumnal leaf in the same shades as the card. Some things are just meant to be!!
