The Fabric of Nature swap ATCs have arrived!

And I am so delighted with them. Every single one of them is a little work of art and a thing of beauty. I took some quick photos of them with my little Fuji camera, as my Nikon has let me down :(, but they really don't do them justice. A huge thank you to Kimberly for hosting this fabulous swap and to all the participants for putting so much work into their beautiful ATCs -

From our swap hostess, Kimberly -

Amy - 

Marlene -

Jewels -

Carolyn -

And moi - 

Gotta rush, its dry out there at the moment, time to get the veggie seedlings in. We have decided to go back to England for a few weeks as the weather is just so horrid here and has been for most of the six weeks we have been here, the veggies aren't growing anyway, and we spend all our time inside, sigh. And the forecast for the next 7 days isn't any better. So we think it is better to come back in 4 weeks' time when everything is growing properly, and stay for three months rather than two. I am frantically packing, so probably won't post or email or comment until the weekend, when we are back in the UK.

How gorgeous they all are, Liz! It's amazing to me how much beauty can fit onto a 2.5" x 3.5" card!♥

I'm sorry that you have had to flee France, but I'm sure that you will enjoy your longer stay when you return.

It has been extra wet here as well, but not as wet as France! Maybe you will be able to plant some pots in England and bring them back to France with you!
I love the ATCs. Each one of them is a beauty and such fun!
Haave a safe and dry trip!
Hugs,
Betsy

Safe travels, sure wish I could house sit for you. I'd make sure the sun came out. It seems to follow me when I travel. :)
