Butterfly Fabric Postcard

I received this beauty from June in NY. She was a swap partner from Swap Bot.

It is almost November and time for a new round of fabric postcard swapping. If you are interested in joining us go over to Brenda’s blog and leave her a comment. We have quite a few ladies swapping with us. It has been so much fun. You can make and send as many as you like and sit out when you want.

Butterfly Fabric Postcard

Look at this lovely goody I received in the mail. Isn’t it gorgeous? I just love butterflies. How lucky am I to receive this gem? Very. Many thank yous Vicki in AZ. I also have to say,”Thank you” to Brenda for hosting such a fabulous fabric postcard swap. I have made some wonderful friends through it. October will be here soon so if you would like to join us in our endeavors of fabric postcard craftiness please do. Go to Brenda’s site and say I sent ya.

Here is a picture of Andrew taking his nap. Right now. It is so peaceful all I hear is the clock ticking, the dog barking, and the keyboard clicking. LOL.

Have a blessed day and leave me a comment if you want to be enter in the fat quarter drawing. I will draw a name October the 3rd.

Fabric Postcards, a Tote Bag, and Greeting Cards

I have been slacking in posting pictures of the fabric postcards I received this month. I received a wonderful hand embroidered one from Brenda. She doubts her skills but I think it is perfect. Much better than I would do.

She also sent me a tote bag she made. The pink fabric is one of my favorites. It will get a lot of use carrying my groceries.

Rhonda in TX sent me a fabric postcard with a hurricane Ike theme. Too cute. The boys love it.

I also got this lovely fabric postcard from Vee in WA.

I also got some 2 1/2 inch fabric strips from a swap I host on Swap-Bot. Aren’t the lovely colors?

Here is a card that my Gramma Geri made and sent to me. She is so creative.

Today while I was on the phone with a friend I made this greeting card. It is blank on the inside. I haven’t decided who I will send it to or if I will sell it on ETSY. The print is fabric ironed onto the card. I added the ribbon on the side and glued a button and it looked finished to me.

I know I have my hand into too many buckets. This is what having ADD does to you. You can’t stay satisfied for more than 15 minutes with doing one thing.

Homemade Doll

So I attempted to make another doll. This time I made the pattern bigger and gave her some funky pink hair and a heart shaped face. She also has a pretty purple butterfly on her tummy. Joshua asked me what I named her. I told him she didn’t have a name yet and asked him what we should name her. He said to name her Holly. So Holly it is.
