I finally seem to have had time to sew several Christmas greetings as fabric postcards. Every year I have big plans and every year I make all of one. Once I got two made.
This year I have one for everyone on my "special card" list. You know the ones...those who actually appreciate not only receiving your Christmas card, but appreciate your hand crafted greetings.
I have nine done this year! Hurray!
Only three designs, but I thought that was pretty good for me. Sometimes I struggle with the small size blank slate and other times I get more ideas than I can apply. You wouldn't think a Christmas theme would be a struggle, but for some reason it was. I'll get plenty of ideas once it's too late to send any more. Ain't that always the way!
My favorite Nancy Halverson snowman on my favorite fabric background.
With bells on his toes...
(thank you so much Carol for sending me that binding fabric!)
Well, I wish I could blame old age for not sewing one of his legs, but shit like that happens every now and again. After having a personal but not so quiet hissy fit about it, I thought of my other dear friend Samm who would look for the bright side of this failure. It can only mean one thing.....that when I become famous this card will be quite valuable with it's stitching flaw...right?
Wishing you a good mail day!
