It's probably well-known to regular readers that I love making and collecting ATCs. These small textile cards delight me and I am always keen to convert others to swap with me. This week, an unexpected package arrived. Five gorgeous ATCs tumbled out - all made by Ellie Neil for me.
There's a story behind this. Last year, I was talking to Ellie for work-related reasons and we were chatting about the quilts we were making. I told her about my latest batch of ATCs and how I found them addictive to make. Ellie, who had never heard of them before, said she might give them a go. Well! Look at this.
Ellie says that the image is of me, on a quest to track down more ATCs. That's me at the helm, with my hair flying in the wind. Isn't it simply divine?
I'll show you the other four once I photograph them. Now I have to think about the type I will send her. Tricky.
