Once a week my best bud and I spend the evening on the phone working on projects. Although I must admit she works on more than I do. Sometimes I'm real lazy and I just sit, talk and "watch" her work. However this week I had a mission.
I have a very good friend who had a very serious heart attack back on Easter Sunday. Thankfully he is doing great now but I needed to make him a get-well/I miss you fabric postcard.
I had bought some really cool fabric from my favorite line -- Fusions -- at a quilt shop in MA a couple weekends ago. (I did manage to limit myself to only 3 colorways and not the whole selection this time .) The flowers were from a trip back in Jan. to Wright's. (What a store!) The variegated yarn is from the wonderful yarn shop in Great Barrington.
These postcards are just so much fun to make. Because they are so small, I am not afraid to try new things. If my ideas don't work, I have not wasted much money or time. The bad thing is, I had to send it out and won't be able to take it to my Fiber Arts Club for Show and Tell. Hopefully a picture will suffice.
