postcards from paradise

I have been working on a small series of postcards inspired by a holiday in the Cook Islands a couple of years ago.    They are to form part of a travelling exhibition with Stitchers Plus next year.

It is great to work on a small context but any thing that is not right really sits out to me.  I think I spent as much time ripping this little piece as I did stitching it.  

I am trying to use stitches that I saw in the embroidered quilts that are traditional to the Cook Island ladies who do such amazing work.    There is an earlier post on tivavae if you are interested in seeing them.
