Play Day Again, ATCs for trade

Well I spent most of the morning working on some ATC's for trade. Then I went out to the local bead shop, & the fancy fabric shop near here. I found some crystals, so now my July JQ Dragonfly has eyes! They look blue in the picture, but they are both blue & a violet, depending on how your looking at them. I stopped by & saw Auntie E. She's looking pretty good.
One of these will be going to Margaret, but the other 3 need homes. Anyone interested?
They are made from my hand painted fabrics, & a little bit of my black silk shibori wrapped, discharged, & overdyed fabric. Shi-sha mirrors held in place by thread painting, & some hand beading, & a little bit of wire & painted dryer sheet.Just as I went to post this, we had another earthquake! Only a 3.0 this time, & it didn't last but a few seconds. Not nearly as exciting as yesterday's quake.

The dragonfly eyes are perfect! Wait till you see my July JQ, you'll see why I'm so crazy about dragonflies. Assuming I ever stop being fearfully paralyzed and do the beading.
I'd love to trade ATCs with you. I've not made one yet but had some leftovers from one of my WOTB blocks that I thought I could do something with. What size is an ATC?
Hope your earth stops quaking.

I'd love to trade. I'll have to make some first, but I used to make ATC's about five years ago for mail art projects and loved trading.

Love those dragonfly eyes! Soon as we get this house into escrow and I can get my sewing machine out and mess up the studio I am going to make an ATC to trade with you!

Gotta love those aftershocks...NOT!

Wow, I'm late reading this, but glad everything is okay after the tremors. Your ATC's look great and I too, would like to arrange a trade sometime with you.

Love the ATC's and the dragon fly eyes. I went to the Greater Ann Arbor quilt show today. It was nice for a smaller show.
