Mail....... post card swap

Good things are worth the wait
Our post cards must have been around the last to be received on both ends. But received and enjoyed they are.
I exchanged with Tina Marie and she made me this lovely post card with cross stitching and embroidery as well as some beading in the sea weed. I think she did a fantastic job on the post card.
and a little extra on the back
My post card was done with a product called  inkodye
    it is a sun sensitive dye and works like the blueprinting a did a few years ago. You can get it in a number of different colors and works like a charm.
  I did a little accent stitching and some applique. Tina Marie is very sweet and calls it a work of art. Thank you Tina Marie. I just love to play with fabric and paints too.

I did get some other sewing done in the last little bit .
I finished this quilt and just have the binding to close off on this one.

 Next will be working on the family reunion quilt for this years gathering I want to do another signature quilt so the major sewing will be done after the reunion so no worries about not having all the blocks built ahead of time. I did make a couple little bags that we Janel will fill with books for a kids item at the family reunion auction. 2 fat quarters make the bag ... quick and easy using the green bag lady's pattern.
We have been getting to the lake and doing a little fishing and relaxing.
So I may not post for a week or two again but I will try an d get some sewing in when i can .... even at the lake.... that's where I have been binding the quilts.
take care
