QA magazine is having a contest called "Staycation". Kind of like the old first day of school speech on what you did this summer- except in fabric.
I spend most at my time with the girls at swim practice and swim meets. They have plans to be in the Olympics in a few years. We shall see ;)
So I took a picture of them at practice:
Anyway, I used stiff stuff interfacing as the base. I couldn't use my scissors much or the rotary cutter so I ripped small strips of blue fabric, layered them on and then cut the shapes for the girls. I added dyed blue cheese cloth for texture. I quilted it all and then added white, silver, and clear beads for sparkle. After all, water sparkles. This is a terrible photo of the finished postcard.
