The best bit about The Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap is the moment that a lovely piece of stitched postcard art arrives on your doorstep from a new friend somewhere on the other side of the world. This time I was thrilled to receive this gorgeous piece of tiny art from Alexandra Charlap in California.

This time round the theme of the swap was ‘Discover’ and on the front of Alex’s lovely card it says ‘Discover the magic of life by adding colour to your world’.

Later this week I will be sharing the postcard I made and a gallery of other postcards from the swap, and announcing the winner of the yummy Japanese stationery giveaway – stay tuned!
