I participated in a FALL Post Card Swap coordinated by Sheila at http://sheilasquiltworld.blogspot.com/
I was late to the party and Annette from http://institchesandseams.blogspot.com/ took on double duty and made this card for me. The leaves are embellishments and the effect is wonderful.
Since I spend more of my waking life at work than I do at home I now her card sitting on a small plate rack on my desk to brighten my day and to share with the folks I work with.
In turn I made this little guy for Annette. It took 12 days to get to her. Columbus day here and Thanksgiving in Canada apparently slowed down the process a little bit.
This is a wall hanging pattern designed by Kaaren Johnston of the Painted Quilt. It is her latest FFF design. I shrank it down considerably to fit the 4 x 6 Post Card standard and had to eliminate the top section of the design but it worked perfectly for a Fall Post Card.
While I was on this Post Card roll, I whipped up a Birthday card for my MIL. She truely loves it when I make her little quilty things.
I was told by the admiring Postal person that this one is not truely a post card as it measures in at something more like 6 x 9 than 4 x 6 but who other than her really cares.
This week begins the Wicked Hop. I hope you are planning on stopping by to visit all of the creepy, crawley blogs that will be participating. I will be coming out of the shadows on Thursday. Hope to see you here then.
