One of our friends from Trinity, who lives in the South tower of The Westover hosted a cocktail party in our honor on Friday evening. I decided to make a little postcard thank you for her. She loves flowers and has a lot of begonias on her deck.
I had some rainbow dyed silk scraps and first cut little petals for the flower and fused them.
Then I made leaves and a background and fused everything in place.
I hadn’t done free motion quilting for a while so it was fun to do some on this little piece.
I had to make a run to the studio to find my postcard backs. After gluing the stitched piece to the postcard back and zig zag stitching the edge. I put a stamp on it an mailed it. I always like to have the recipients have the surprise of getting this delivered in the mail.
Making the postcard and catching up on my SDA work have filled my day.
