My pillow so far and some mail I neglected to share

Another spring like day here on the east coast , not as balmy as yesterday but lovely all the same . I received some mail recently that I did not share and although Valentines day is past I want to show you what my blogging friends sent to me.
I first received this lovely handmade card from Karen , her daugther made this sweet card . Thanks so much for thinking of me Karen.
Next I received this postcard from my friend Linda ,isn't it sweet ! Thanks Linda , I love it .
Finally this warm hands and heart postcard arrived from Annette a few days after Valentines day , I think the postal workers enjoyed it for a time ;-) Thanks Annette , I love this one too .
 Now to share my pillow so far , lots left to do , I just finished ironing on the applique so need to stitch that down .
I know you are going to need to use your imagination but that is a bird on the top of the flower and hopefully when I finish it will look a tad more like one ;-) I love my flower even if it does have blue leaves !
 I am off now to do some stitching on this project , hope your day is going well , take care and thanks for stopping by .
 hugs Sheila

  1. Hi Sheila, I love your post cards. The heart in the gloved hands is so pretty. I love your. Go Wild pillow. I fell in love with this design as soon as I saw the book a while back. I am working on the quilt. It is a major wip for me. I love all the colours in your pillow and the little bird is perfect :)

    Sheila, your BEAUTIFUL post cards came today...can't wait to blog about them, hopefully, tomorrow and THANK YOU! I almost cried at the loving work of your hands and heart. It means so much...the thistle and the view is perfect...great memory!
    Thank you, Sheila; when I'm long gone from here, your framed post cards will hang in my new home.
