a finished mixed media postcard. i made this one using a chunk of the hexagon pieced paper i was experimenting with. i've included a bit of vintage embroidered pillowcase edge, a fussy cut butterfly, a piece of vintage book page that i have sketched (watercoler pencils) a california poppy onto and some of my own embroidery work. this one is on it's way to my mom in celebration of her birthday.

and here's a sneak peek/teaser shot of the progress on the AAQI  pear quilt that i am working on.

today's gifts included:
  • spending some time with my daughter
  • brainstorming and gathering materials for an upcoming birthday quilt that i want to make
  • the arrival of my new needle felting machine (!!)


  1. That sneak peak really peaked my interest. I think I see some antique lace and yummy knobby thread embellishments. Keep me updated on when this goes to the auction...I covet it!

  2. Beautiful work! The post card is amazing - very nicely designed. The sneak peek is delightful.

  3. Happy Birthday to your mom! I'm sure she will love her postcard - beautiful. Like what I see of the AAQI quilt!

  4. Amazing, can hardly see what comes next! Ü

  5. Those look great, love the teaser shot.
