Quaker mail art for Joanne N.

I participated in the MailArtFriends Yahoo! group’s Quaker mail art exchange. Here’s the envelope I stitched for Joanne. I used motifs from Hannah Hicks’s 1790 sampler with DMC 115 on an ivory linen (think it’s 32 count). There were a few hair-tearing moments when I thought I had misjudged the dimensions of the envelope but I think it turned out nicely, don’t you?

This is my second-ever mail art and the first I’ve sent as-is through the mail. I was too scared to send the first one as-is, so I popped it into an envelope, which makes it a little less fun. Now that this one reached Joanne safely, I’m encouraged to keep sending them as-is!

Here’s a photo of the mail art with stamp and airmail picture affixed, just before I dropped it in the mailbox at the PO:
