I have to apologize for taking so long to post these great postcards I received about a week ago , I find it so difficult to type on the computer and can't do it all from the iPad .
I had taken part in a postcard exchange through Brandy Lynn of Canadian quilt Talk with the theme of maple leaves . Lucky for me I had one suitable postcard on hand so was able to join in the swap and my partner for the swap was Monika of My Sweet Prairie and this is the lovely postcard she sent to me . Thanks so much Monika , always a pleasure to swap with you :-)
My friend Annette also sent me one of her creative postcards with the same theme , Annette always comes up with the greatest cards . It was so thoughtful of Annette to send me this great postcard , thanks so much , it did brighten my day , just love it :-) Annette's card depicts someone enjoying a swing on an old tire under a maple tree , how clever , the maple leaf is dimensional ;-)
Then a few days ago I received a package in the mail from my friend Eglea in Brazil , she sent me this lovely thread painted fuchsia flower . She has been practising her thread work and it is just amazing . I love it !
She also included some vintage fabric which she had used in a previous postcard she had sent . I can't wait to try it out , I love the texture of it . Thanks so much for everything Eglea
Are you wondering how the wrist is coming ? Well , slowly but I do see some improvement , I seen my doctor on Tuesday and he gave me permission to leave the brace off which is a relief as it gets kind of hot . I get very discouraged at times as I can't do the things I want to do and everyday chores are still challenging but I have to remind myself this too shall pass if I do what I am told and push that wrist and hand as much as possible and often . To be honest my wrist is not nearly as sore as my hand is , my thumb being the worst , it aches a lot . Send me some healing thoughts please , I so want to get back to normal .
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today and I hope the sun is shining where you are .
