I belong to a Fabric postcard online group.
One of the latest trades was to use a postage stamp.
A big thanks to the one that had the idea. It has become one of my favorites.
I had a packet of charm squares for boys, and in it was this piece with airplanes...Perfect!
This one went to a blogging  friend.
Hope she likes it:)

This picture depicts a long time spent on Utube trying to learn needle tatting.
Yesterday I reached success and finally got  my attempt to resemble
I think these will be a nice accent on some lavender sachets I am making..
Now I am off to vacuum my studio!! Lord knows it needs it..
Hope y'all have a wonderful day.

Fabric Postcards

I was part of a Fabric Postcard Exchange and this was the one I made.
We had to use a postage stamp and go from there..
I think this has opened up a whole new train of thought..

Memories of My Mother.
It has been 20 years this month since she has been gone.
 Hard to believe so much time has passed.
I miss her and think of her every day.
She was not only pretty, but she was the sweetest, kindest person and such a good Mother
Here she is holding me... a little chub at 6 months old.

Here's some flowers for you Mom
I Love You

                                         The Postman was busy this morning.....
                            I t took me a moment to remember what I was expecting.. Oh Dear!!
                               Sometimes shopping on line late at night leaves me wondering!!!
                  First of all I got my Ver Day Paint Kit....It's all your fault Lottie!!! VBG
                                (check out Lottie's Charms that she used the VerDay on)
                                    This parcel came from a Canadian source called
                              Pewter Art in Calgary Alberta  and was priced at $29.99.
                                 A very good price after all the searching I did online...
                             Ever since I saw what Lottie was doing with this I wanted it!
I think I will use it to create some special metal journal  covers,
 and the other idea I have is to do some of my doll faces that I create to give them that special look.
Woops I gotta go get a tissue, I am drooling :)

Here was my 2nd parcel from Amazon..These books are jam packed full of all kinds of ideas.I was especially anxious to get Sue Bleiweiss' book (The Sketchbook Challenge).... an online blogging friend. It is a fabulous book Sue. I can hardly separate myself from it :)

                                  The 3rd parcel came from one of my favorite Ebay shops in China.
                                                 For anyone that makes bags and totes,
                                        These are the magnetic closures.I got 10 sets for 99cents!!!!
                                                                  FREE SHIPPING
                                                                 You gotta love that!
So I think after all this excitement I need a nap.....No Way Maggie!!
Gotta get busy
Hope y'all have a great day, I know I am :)
