Postcard Swap

I had surgery a few weeks ago and haven't been able to sew since prolonged sitting wasn't allowed and I couldn't figure out how to sew lying down. Now I'm allowed to sit for up to 20 minutes at a time and I was finally able to get back to my favorite pasttime.

I had signed up for a postcard swap and needed to make 3 postcards. While on a recent Quilter's Quest bus trip to 6 quilt shops I found some adorable halloween fabric. So I decided to use that in my postcards.

I know it's early, but orange is my favorite color and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so I figured maybe these cards would inspire others. This is the perfect time to get Halloween fabric.

These things are tons of fun to make and tons of fun to receive. It's like a smile in the mailbox. Tomorrow I'm making a few more for some other quilters who have never seen one in person.

Life is good!
