Some mail

It has been a while since I posted , just don't seem to have the desire but I want to get myself back into a normal routine so here goes ...A little while ago I received a wonderful package in the mail from my friend Pauline , we had decided we would exchange "Spring " postcards and this is what arrived for me.
This adorable spring postcard , some lovely swatches of fabric from Liberty of London as well as the covered buttons also from Liberty of London, how very special .Thanks so much Pauline ,I love them all .
I sent off a postcard to Pauline as well but I will keep that a secret until it arrives safe and sound.
I have been making a few postcards would you like to see?
This one is for a 1/on/1 exchange from a yahoo group ,our choice of subject so I made this little teacup complete with a real tag from a teabag from my favorite tea .
Next is this birthday card I am mailing off to my sister , I don't think she reads my blog so I think I am safe .
I was also scheduled to take part in the April Showers blog hop with Madame Samm but had to cancel when my Dad became ill so I will share my project with you now.

My first thought for April showers was the saying "April Showers bring May flowers so I created this little gal watering her flowers . The flowers are embroidered , it was a fun little project to make .
Oh back to postcards as I also had made two postcards before I went off to my parents and they didn't get mailed until I returned ,two landscape themed cards .
and this one
So that is it from me today , it feels good to be back , hope all is well in your world , thanks for stopping by .
 hugs Sheila

  6. A great range of postcards and little mug rug... it will take a bit of time to feel things are a bit normal for you. I think you are wise to make yourself do some of the things that give you routine....
    Those Liberty fabrics look a lot of fun...
