More of the same

One more workshop and it would be all over for the year.
But.....more of the same. On Friday I finished making all the samples to show the different stages of making a fabric postcard. In the afternoon I got everything together. Even my voice was not too bad.
But it was not to be. That night the stomach flue hit me me. Needless to say I did not make it to the workshop.
Since the room and lunch had been ordered the group decided to go though with it. Laurence made a mad dash to Kitchener after the chores with all the supplies and I went back to bed for the next 3 days.
This workshop was for my own guild.I'm organizing another quilt for the Mennonite Relief Sale and this one involves the making and sending of fabric postcards. At the last meeting I met members, who had never made one, so an informal list was made for people interested in a workshop. When that list was over 20 we decided we better do something about it, so a workshop was organized. In total over 40 members signed up. A second one has been added for late January.For that one I will make some other samples.
Since all my stuff was shipped to the workshop on Saturday I could not work on anything here at home once I felt a little bit better. Yesterday I retrieved my things and even got some Christmas shopping done.
These snowmen are meant for sending to family and friends overseas, so it is more than time to finish them and hit the post office.


  1. Nice to have you in our group. Sorry to hear that you've been under the weather, hope you'll be healed soon.
    Love the photos of the farm and roses.

  2. Just checked out your website and I think that "Waterloo County" is gorgeous; the colors are beautiful beyond words.

  3. those are darling cards!

  4. Great use of a batik (it looks like) as a background! Cute little guy. What's your favorite way to finish the edges?

  5. Very cute! Love the fringe on the scarf.
