Brenda over @ The Quilt Journey is hosting a fabric postcard swap. It is so much fun. There are 4 of us so far. If anyone is interested in joining visit Brenda’s site and leave her a comment. We would love to have you join us. It is so easy and rewarding. Here is an example of one I mailed last time.
I received this embroidered fabric postcard in the mail yesterday from Rhonda. She lives in Texas. Isn’t it fabulous. I love it.
Today has been a productive day. I sewed two friendship squares for a swap.
I also sewed together 9 churn dash blocks that are made from 30’s material for a baby quilt. The blocks are from a swap. The only one I made is the purple floral block at the top.
Then the kids and I went out for a while and did yard work. Man was it hot outside. We weren’t out there very long before we had sweat dripping in our eyes. We came in around 11:30am for lunch. It was getting too hot.
After lunch I got brave and started peeling off the wall paper in our foyer. It was an ugly green striped paper. It came off relatively easy. I discovered that there was another layer underneath that. An ugly blue floral. Yucko. So now I have to decide what to do next.
Brenda over at The Quilt Journey is hosting a post card swap. The two post cards on the left are from the swap from June. So far for July there is 4 of us swapping. If you would like to join us go over to Brenda’s blog and leave her a message. It is lovely to receive treats in the mail from sewing friends across the world. Why not join in on the fun. Happy Sewing.
Here are 4 more post card quilts that I made for swaps this week. They are in the mail. So keep your eyes peeled girls.
My fellow Blogger Brenda from The Quilt Journey wants to start a post card swap. I thought it was a great idea so I joined. If anyone else is interested in swapping with us head over to Brenda’s blog and let her know. This will be a great way to meet new bloggers and make friends across the world. Hugs and happy blogging.
Okay, I have been wanting to make fabric post cards for a long time. I signed up for a swap the other day and have to make four. I figured this was a great way to bite the bullet and do it. Oh my, I am in love with making them. These are the first 3. I made 2 more with different cats but I haven’t finished the edges yet. I will post those later. They are simple but speak volumes to me.
