It is a cold day here on the East coast today , brrr..... the worst part about that is it makes you realize what is to come . However my mailbox has been busy with postcards which always brighten the dullest day and this one is extra special as it came from Raewyn's nephew Max , Raewyn had emailed me and asked if I would be willing to exchange postcards with Max who is 11 as he had learned to sew postcards on a recent visit at her home. I was delighted to be asked so I did some research through Raewyn to see what type of things might interest Max but before I get into that I will show you his sweet little postcard I received one day last week .
I think Max did an excellent job on making this card , his stitching is really quite good for a novice and I like his geometric shapes , excellent job Max, thanks so much !!So now back to my investigation , Raewyn told me that Max has a pet chicken that he carries around with him so I thought that would be perfect for a postcard and I think I am pretty safe in sharing the postcard I mailed off to Max , I don't believe it has arrived just yet but it must be getting very close .
I sure hope Max likes my funky chicken , it was a lot of fun to create.
Yesterday I received this lovely pumpkin postcard from Judy as part of the fall postcard exchange .
Isn't it great , love her stitching !! Thanks so much Judy and thanks for swapping with me.
I have a finish for October to share , well technically it needs more quilting but I decided to say it was done for now as I had promised this banner for my granddaughters to hang for the fall .
I think this is an adorable project even though I was thoroughly frustrated with the mistakes in the Fons and Porter magazine Quilting Celebrations the fall issue . I am sure such major mistakes angered a few people . The girls loved their new scarecrow and I hope they enjoy having him hanging up for Halloween .
I have been busy sewing but nothing to share just now , maybe in a day or so .
Off I go back to the sewing machine , I am sewing Christmas today , thought I might as well it is cold enough :-) Thanks for stopping by and have a great day doing something you love .
