ATC Swap

Val Thomas of Val's Musings and I swapped ATC's. This is what I sent her:

Swags of josephine knots attached to tatted limbs created "Pink Wisteria", made with Yarnplayer's "Peace" in size 40.
I'm so happy Val liked it!

This is what Val sent me! Isn't it gorgeous? Felt, fabrics, and techniques such as burning, freemotion machine sewing, and layers of metallic thread were molded in Val's hands to create this textured, beautiful art. The picture only hints at the shimmer of the material and thread. I envision gold flowers and long grasses dancing in the breeze against a changing blue sky. I love it! Thanks so much, Val.

If you haven't seen Val's phenomenal work, please check out her blog:

Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz


  1. So pleased you liked it Suz - I still reckon I got the best bargain!

  2. Guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on that, Val. :-)

  3. That was beautiful work & a wonderful trade on both your parts! So happy for both of you.

  4. Thanks, Bsotf. This was my first ever swap, and I'm delighted how it turned out! I've already signed up for more!

  5. Hi Suz, you are the designer of the tatted tree! This is one pattern which I want to try, must get round to that! Love your "Pink Wisteria" ATC! Want to swap a tatted fabric ATC?


I love to read your comments!
