05-04-2008, 08:23 PM
Apparently you & I think alike. As a newbie, I wanted to prepare early for my first hosting. Then, my sister gave me some beautiful Japanese papers. They shouted "kimono." It seemed like fate. I planned "Geishas & Kimonos" as my first swap, but I had another month to wait before I was eligible to host. I spent some of the time designing and creating Geisha ATCs. Then, 12 geishas later.... your swap showed up. After a few heart-stopping moments, I made cards for your swap using a totally different approach -- kimono quilt patterns -- very graphic rather than realistic/impressionistic.

Questions:
1. May I join?
2. Can you send your addie? (See completed cards.)
3. Later, may I host "Kimonos II", aka "Geishas & Kimonos" without stepping on your toes :confused:?

Take care.

05-05-2008, 02:40 PM
Wow! Kat, I saw your kimono quilt cards...Are those sewn?

kat
05-05-2008, 07:21 PM
sometomato --
No, the kimono quilts are not sewn. However, I was a needle artist in the 1970s when my kids were little: quilts, needlepoint, crewelwork, etc. I never could make all the quilts that I designed in my head. ATCs are incredibily reinforcing --- My first quilt took me 2 years. Comparatively, ATCs are instant gratification!

I've attached a picture of the host gift card I'm sending to altermyworld. It's called "Kimonos & Chaos" and based on a quilt made by Beth Gutcheon named "The Goose is Loose."

Take care.

Kat, that looks like the images are covered by a layer of interfacing! What an idea!

kat
05-06-2008, 07:17 AM
Actually, it is a Japanese paper given to me by my sister: Hemp Flower Ivory. The others have similar papers between the kimonos and the backing. I don't have names for those since they came from a "snack pac" of Japanese papers. My sister gave me a wonderful selection that she bought in Toronto. When going through customs, the officials were most concerned by the larger pieces which were rolled and wrapped. They were pretty sure it was a rifle barrel.

That is 8! :wideeyed: YIKES! Now I have to decide which ones to send and which to save for trades. You can see them at my gallery here:

Ang, I am finally sending these off. There is one for you - your choice. I will enclose some $ for postage. (Just a question - Don't you ever need US stamps for return envies? Wouldn't that be a good option to sending loose $$?)

altermyworld
06-20-2008, 04:48 PM
Not really as i have US postage i buy when i go over to the states, i would rather not be out of monies when i comes to the swap i host, as there are 20 + participants, that would be a lot of monies as it cost me 96 cents to mail an envie, so in short i would rather have the 1.00.
Thank you for the question and for hostess card.

In fact I am so excited with what I found, I'm going to use the design style to make an actual garment.

Those are very pretty jonquil. That is the same approach I'm taking with this. The prints are what interest me most with kimonos; the more intricate the better. The Japanese do remarkable things with their textiles.

I have been dabbling with shibori. My results are crude but I still like what I am getting . As a matter of fact, I'm going to use some of my shibori silk for this very swap.

Anglo word for shibori = tye dye. But the Japanese do remarkable things with "tye dye".

Ah....the JPP used to be my old paper supply place. Man, I miss it.

And I'm currently hoarding some Japanese shibori paper. I doubt that I'll ever use it.

Yeah, like that. People would send in cards featuring cherry blossoms, pine trees (a personal favourite of mine), plovers, and other design motifs that have been used on Japanese arts and crafts. I have a great book on them but I need to hunt down some on-line resources...

Mine were mailed. We had a big holiday last Friday, I hope it doesn't screw up the delivery. I have become very anxious whenever I send anything to Canada. The inconsistent delivery is very disconcerting.

I'd upload to the gallery, but it is a major hassel.

thanks for the update. I usually wait about 1 week past duedate and then the cards will be traded, if anyones cards come later than that i will either trade them with other later cards and if no cards than they will be returned to you.

07-09-2008, 11:21 PM
take care Jeanette please don't worry about it.

The duedate has been extended till July the 25th. I am leaving for the states on the 29th and thought i could mail these from there, you would probably receive them sooner and it would give some of the late mailers a few extra days.

Thanks for extending the due date.
I couldn't find my cards on my craft table and I looked for
quite some time. I just found them today about 15 minutes ago.:twitcy:
So, I missed todays post.

Well get them out in tomorrows mail.

07-10-2008, 07:14 PM
You're right the all must arrive before then and i say this with the complete understanding of what it feels like to "hope" your mail gets there. Today i mailed off two swaps i am in, before i dropped them i actually called for the Post Gods to bless my envies.

Your cards are quite creative and all fit the style of art I love receiving.
Collage kimono by Francie H.

I am glad I joined this swap. Thanks a bunch for these swell cards to add to my collection.

OK, seems my A4A ID is not on my labels. So anyone who got a card with a coyote bust block print and MFZeier Original on it--that's me.

It would be one of these: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=22828
