A few postcards

Here are some of my postcards. The first one is "Fire". I wove a homedyed fabric with a black one, machine embroidered the resulting base, and added a few hand stitches in metallic thread. This was fun to do.
The next one is "Arizona". I dug my old Grand Canyon pictures out. They were taken 20 years ago. Our American son was 6 months old at that time, easy to remember...
The last one is my favourite. It is inspired by a traditional Japanese wave design. And it is blue...
Quelques cartes textiles... "Fire", un tissage de bandes de tissu, rebrodé à la machine et à la main. "Arizona", réalisé à partir de mes vieilles photos du Grand Canyon. Et la troisième,la bleue, ma préférée, inspirée d'un motif de vague (motif traditionnel japonais).
