More distractions

Tonight I shared a collection of fabric postcards I have received over a number of years through exchanges . The ladies staying at the Lodge along with one gentleman came to view them and were all quite impressed with these little pieces of art . None of them had even heard of these fabric postcards and were shocked that they had come through the mail in this manner . I also took a few minutes to explain how they are constructed and you just never know maybe someone else will catch this bug lol .
  When you are staying here going through treatments simple little activities like this help pass the time as well as distract from the reason they are here . It felt good to give them a reason to smile .
 Thanks for stopping by .
 Hugs Sheila

  6. Oh my gosh, I see one I made! How fun! It is always fun to meet up with people who are amazed that these little works of art go through the mail as easily as a paper envelope. I had those exact feelings when I first came across this idea of fabric postcards.

  11. Ah, Sheila, I do so hope that the treatment for Bill is going well. I think of you guys often. I'm sorry that you're both going through this. That's a great idea, to share the idea of fabric postcards with people. You may just get someone sewing when they see the little works of art!
    Take care.
