This is Mary's post card she is from the U.K. and this is her first ever post card. She did awesome

Next I took part in Brand's Mistletoe post card swap.
One from Val in Ontario

One from Mary in B.C.
And the last one 
A smoochie one from Angela from B.C. as well

Here are the ones I sent 

I am sure the last post card will make it's way before long.
They are always fun to make and send off.
Thanks ladies for swapping with me this Christmas.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2017.

Mistletoe and stockings

 I'm in a postcard swap for the holidays. Brandi from A quilter on fire, is hosting a mistletoe post card swap.  I have them off in the mail. I hope they like them, I am looking forward to seeing what they created for the swap.

Then I stitched up a stocking for Christmas, one more to sew up yet.

As I do some of the sewing on my to do list and hemming pants, I have made a quilted sleeve for my daughter's mono. I tried out the product called inerfoam. A foam the you can sew through and you can squeeze t an it will bounce back to its original shape. I did have slipped stitches when sewing the binding on.

Then I tried out a headband pattern and have these ready to mail.
That's what I've been up to, what have you been stitching this week?
