http://quilting-and-other-stuff.blogspot.com/ sent me this postcard. She used a plastic to coat it and send it through the mail. What a great idea.
I think butterflies are so beautiful and unique! Plus, she used purple, my favorite color. Thank You Vicki, I really like it!
The second postcard is from Valerie @ http://ausrose.blogspot.com/ she is on vacation and sent me this from Wales. Dragons fascinate me, the stories and the way that pictures show so many different styles and beliefs. So I really got a double delight with this one; a dragon and from a place I will most likely never see in person. Thank you Valerie.
One other great thing happened today. My oven, that has been broken for over a month, was completely fixed. I can start baking again. YEAH... I do enjoy baking, although I often add extra ingredients or totally forget them (hee, hee) so now and again...my masterpieces (LOL) turn out like bricks or burn like charcoal when I forget about them being in the oven at all. DH always tries whatever I make, then Dodger gets to sample whatever Kevin can not finish. My baking project for today is Acorn Squash. My landlord grew them in his garden and the plant produced enough for everyone in the neighborhood to eat all year long. I am going to bake it and then freeze it for the winter.
So many wonderful things are going on in my life, it is a great blessing. One of the best is that my younger brother is staying at a close friends and is doing good. He is an alcoholic and without going into to many details, I finally know that he is safe and getting things in his life straightened out and on the right track. For close to the last 10 years, he has disappeared for long lengths of time and we wouldn't know for many months at a time if he was even alive. I really hope and pray that this is the first step back to a life of "normal".
I am still working on reducing my scrap bucket. Right now I am making postcards for this next month and doing the house blocks on the quiltville site. Both projects are enjoyable and interesting. Yet, that bucket just does not seem to be going down any at all. But, off I go to help it shrink a tad bit more. Have a great day!
