Rusty ATCs & some Threadplay

I was on call this weekend. Yesterday I got called in for one case during the day, then thought I was lucky. Just as I was getting ready for bed, the phone rang, & I had to go in again. I ended up being there all night long. I got home & to bed at 5 a.m. I was supposed to go back at 730, but since I'd been up since 8 yesterday, I called in sick. Sick & tired more like it. I woke up at 1130, with a queezy stomach & a pounding headache. 3 cups of coffee & 400mg of Ibuprofen later, & several hours of setting on the couch, staring at design programs, I'm feeling human again.
Above are 3 ATCs, & 1 Postquard, that I finished yesterday. One of the ATCs
is going to Christiane K, in Germany, but the other 2 & the postquard are
available for trade. Each one is made with some of my rust dyed fabric, a
Shi-sha mirror, & thread painting. Some hand beading, & hand-dyed silk
Chenneille yarn.
The ATC below is one she already sent to me. I got it in Saturday's mail.
It's so cute. I love the fabric & fiber textures, & all the special details.

These are a couple of my Threadplay samples. I made the
purple flower as a demo, last week when teaching my
class. I intentionally made it's edges a little fuzzy.

Hope you're all recovered now, or at least well on the way. My DD asked me yesterday when we were getting more ATCs. Would you like to make a trade with her?
