A Peach of an ATC!!!

Hi Dear Blogging Buddies!!!

I wanted to share with you my newest ATC I made
for a gal in England. We decided it would
be cool to do a trade. I was thinking what
I could come up with that would be rather
unique to where I live here in Georgia.
As I was thinking about it I was in my
kitchen and saw some Peaches in
a bowl that I had just bought from the
the garden coop. I thought well a
"Georgia Peach" would be wonderful
to make but in what medium??
I recently downloaded an tutorial
from Cloth Paper Scissors all about
Needle-felted trading cards.....Mmmm
I had bought a roving Kit last year from a gal
in Colorado that lives on a farm and
sells needle felting kits with different
colored roving, two different size needles
and the punching foam. I had never used
it before...well I lie I made an orange
felted round bead...thats all!! So I set
a beautiful fresh peach in front of me
as a giud and started to Felt.....punch, punch,
punch. It was really fun although in the begining
it did not look like much and I was worried that it
would look like a big Mess!!! So here it is in all
it's Peachy glory.....I added some Angelina fibres
to the roving for the Leaf and also I little to highlight
the peach in places. I added some beads and sewed
around the edges with a blanket stitch. I also made
a little pocket on the back to hold a tag that I stamped
with my ATC info onto. It is on it's way to England

I wish all of you a "Peach" of a weekend!! I know
kinda corney!!!!!

Love to All,
