Also, this entry by Cindy from Alaska. (Cindy, would you please email me? You didn't write your email on the back of your postcards...and as promised I am too disorganized to pair it up with the original email.) My photography of this card did not quite capture the subtleties in the pastels, and we are very excited about working in the deep deep blue/black with a graceful blend.
Again, thank you all so much for delighting me this summer with your participation! I will offer a cupon code for a discount on thread to everyone who entered. Details on that will come when the batches are ready to load in the shop. I hope you all enjoyed the contest as much as I did, The Dr. and I have high hopes for repeating it next year. Thank you again for being a part of this wonderful online community of tatters and for keeping me inspired!

Monica was kind enough to follow a bustling Dr. Vonthreadmore around town to capture some of these lovely images for her, and send them with loving care. This particular sunset was seen from her front door. There is a particular luminosity that captured Dr. V.

"This card below was sent upon my visit with Tattin Kat, and more of our adventures can be found on her blog"
"Transportation was a nightmare in the more remote locations I visited. I found such wonderful natural things to use in my dyes, but had such a hard time in getting them properly shipped."
"in India, I met several wonderful creatures. This Elephant agreed to help by carrying several of my baskets to the border. He was very polite, and he worked for peanuts!"
"I had a splendid time in Singapore with Umintsuru. The architecture was delightful with colors abounding."
"One of my final stops on the return trip was again at Fox's. The evening lighted sky was so enchanting, I had to go back for another look!"
"So many of you have been so good to me in my journeys this summer, and I am eternally grateful. The world will be a better place because of the kindness you have shown.... there will be beautiful thread to come! (many of you sent packets of many cards, I have chosen my favorites from those selections to post, but all cards are valid as entries. Deliberations are in the works!)"

I was going to post the last of the postcards, as well as the contest results, and I assure you I will do so as soon as I locate said digital aparatus.
I now return you to your regular scheduled broadcast.
