Fabric postcards, the latest from the pandemic

5 06 2020

During the abundance of time available these days for hand sewing while binge-watching whatever I can find on on Netflix, Hulu, or [insert your fave streamer here], I have created all of these small items, in fond remembrance of making postcards for my guild’s cancelled Voices in Cloth 2020 quilt show.

So here’s what I have come up with so far.  All these meet my very simple criterion:  fun to make for my personal use, some more successful than others.  All the stitching was done using vintage embroidery transfers.

Not all are purple, though I really like the color.

 

And, just for my wacky sense of humor, these few extra, non-embroidered ones:

That’s all, folks.

Your embroidery and creativity is stunning, also your playfulness in the final three. I see you are staying out of trouble and adding to the collective!

Missing you and this delicately navigated time. Hope you and Paul are well and enjoying life a day at a time. Virtual hugs, Pepper
