Postcard sewing

 I have been sort of out of action on my blog lately , just life . I went to visit with my Mom for Mothers Day and found that visit very tough , it was so strange to enter the house and not see my Dad sitting in his favorite chair ,I miss him terribly . Anyway I did a little fun sewing yesterday to brighten my spirits , postcards are such fun to create . Want to see what I made ?


A little touch of spring with some flowers and a cute little butterfly . Still on the spring theme is this next card .
Colorful little flowers with a butterfly and a ladybug in the grass . Then there is the final one which resulted as I had a few more flowers left so what is a gal to do but use them up  right:-)


They were fun to do and the bright colors were great to work with  . 
I am working on my messenger bag today , with any luck I might get it finished soon . Off I go now to the machine since I haven't figured out a way to get it to sew on its own just yet . Enjoy your day and hope you come back soon .
 hugs Sheila

  1. Oh Sheila, my heart goes out to you, it is so hard visiting their home and they are not there, I still find it hard that Mum isn't in her chair either. Your postcards are beautiful, bright and cherry, Wendy xx

  5. Your postcards are always so lovely, Sheila.

    I sure know that feeling you are feeling. The pain takes a long time to leave us when we have lost someone we love so much. It's been 3 1/2 years since my dad died and I miss him every day.

    Big hugs to you.

  6. Love your postcards Sheila. Is there a trick to making them? It is hard when a parent passes away. It will become easier in time and we can remember the happy moments without feeling sad. Hugs....
