Birthday - RAK

I received two more birthday RAKs from ladies in my Cloth Paper Studio group. They were wonderful surprises and I was happy to receive them both.

I received a fabric ATC birthday card today from one of the ladies in my Cloth Paper Studio group. The group calls them random acts of kindness (RAK) and a nice surprise to be sure. It is so thoughtful of her to make this and send it to me. Thank you Diane.

Romance Postcards Received

I received the swap postcards from the ladies in my group. They are wonderful, and they arrived in perfect shape. Next time I will have to commit to making more so that I can receive more of them too. It was fun waiting for them to arrive in the mail.

Fabric Postcard Swap - Romance

I am participating in a fabric postcard swap with one of my online groups,
Cloth Paper Studio. The subject is Romance.

These are the three I made for the swap. Everything on these postcards is either fabric, lace or thread. The button card is a scan from an old one I picked up last summer at an antique store. The wedding photos and the button card are printed on a commercialy treated fabric sheet.

These were mailed off about two weeks ago, and the three I'm receivng have been mailed to me. They should be arriving any time now.

Road 2 California 2008 Quilt Show

My sister, Jodi, and I had a great time at the Road 2 California quilt show this year. It is held in Ontario, California at the convention center. I took just a few pictures of some of the beautiful quilts that were on display.
