Quilty and non quilty chit chat.*
There are many ways to make a fabric Post Card. I am sharing my way of making a fabric postcard. You can get lots of info on making a fabric postcard on Google and Pinterest. (I love Pinterest.)
I started a project of making Alphabet/Color Postcards for my 2 year old grandson. Fun mail from Granny. So far, I am up to the letter I. I use all types of embellishments for texture and interest. I am even using crayons and fabric markers as well.
I also am involved in exchanging
I've always struggled with my weight as an adult. And when my children were young, my highest weight ever was 179 1/2 lbs. I've tried diets that worked. But, revolved around supplements and some pre-packaged food. I know that I didn't want to go that route again. It worked and didn't work. I lost weight and then of course when I met my goals, and stopped the diet, I gained all the weight back and then some.
Last year, I had an accident and cut my hand pretty badly and had to go to

Today was another pretty good quilty day. I finished my June Hello Sun BOM. Yep, another WIP, DONE. Now, I can't wait to see what the block is for July. I wonder what the finishing will be?
I finished cutting my background squares and some batting for my Halloween Crazy Quilt.
I worked on cutting my fabric for my July doll quilt. And, that is going very well. I'm hoping to get a jump on starting to piece my little DQ before the end of the month of June.
Was a pretty good quilty day. I finished my June Doll Quilt. Thats right, done! Quilted, done! Binding, done! Label, done! So, now when I go to the post office this week I will be mailing my doll quilt and needlebook.
And, I decided what I want to do for my July doll quilt. I'm pretty sure...positive actually...that I'm going to play with my NEW ish twister tool. And, of course, Red/White/Blue. So, I'm going to check my scrap bin first. But, I have lots of Patriot fabric to use.
It's been awhile since I've blogged. I think it's time for a re-cap. My last few blog entries have been about a fabric moratorium and finishing up UFO's, WIP's or whatever you want to call them.
The fabric moratorium....well, it has gone pretty well. But, I can't say I haven't bought any fabric. And, I did buy fabric I didn't really need. I HAVE policed my purchases much closer. And, I do intend to continue in this frame of mind. So, not a complete WIN or a complete BUST.
