Postcards and a flimsy

Good evening ,it was a gorgeous spring day today , sunny and very comfortable temperatures . Early this morning it was a spectacular frost covered scene out the window,  everything just sparkled .
  I recently taught a postcard workshop in Tatamagouche a lovely town about an hour from here . It wasn't a big class but those present were very enthusiastic and raring to make some creative cards .
This is Carol and myself at the end of the day. 
Here is the class minus a couple who had to leave early.  Such a lovely group of ladies and very creative too . 
 I brought along lots of postcards I have received over the years in swaps which they really loved and It was the perfect inspiration . 
A few of the postcards created 

I have been working on some scrappy checkerboard blocks that were inspired by a weekly challenge by Darlene of a Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop .  I enjoyed making these blocks so much I kept right on going and made this quilt top . It still needs some borders which I am still thinking on .
I am proud to say this was completely sewn on my vintage Singer machine which I just love to use .  
I could share some postcards I have made recently but will save them for another post.  
Thanks for stopping by it is always a pleasure to have tour visit . 
 Hugs Sheila
