It’s Thursday. I think I can make it to the weekend. I’ve been working on valentines. My Mom has been sharing the postcards I’ve been sending her. She has incorporated a list of friends that would like one. “You don’t have to write them a card, just mail them one.” She’s so funny. So Sunday, I pieced some scraps together and Valentine postcards were created.

I wrote on the other side, “Every day is Valentine’s Day when you share it with someone you love…” Corny, but true…

Chelsey has got to work tonight and I have to work late. I plan on hitting the treadmill, quick supper for Don, get half the housework that’s normally done on the weekend done because we are going to Green Bay Prom Dress shopping this Saturday. I have to wait up for her anyway. Don’s job has been taking it out of him, so he’s been checking out early. If (Big IF) I’m not totally exhausted I have some hand sewing I’ve been working on. Pictures to come later. I got Sunday School Junk to work on for my class too. If exhaustion does set in, there is always curling up with a book. My Mom just finished the 3rd Blossom Street book, and mailed it to me. Needless to say, I’m never bored. Life is good.

Gratitudes:
1. Crème for my coffee
2. Leftovers for lunch
3. My thread rack Eric gave me for Christmas. (I had more fun lining up the thread,)

Oh these are adorable! So do these really go through the mail? I still haven't tried one! But your mom's friends will LOVE these!

Oh, your scrappy hearts are really cute! Sounds like you're keeping yourself BUSY! Prom dress shopping should be fun :)
You're in my thoughts.

I'm going to lift your idea here. I live in Loveland Colorado. There has been a very large Valentine remailing program going on for 40? some years and I have considered doing away with Christmas cards and substituting Valentines. It is too late for me to do it this year other than one or two but just wait for next year!

Love your valentine postcards - don't think I'd be brave enough to put them throught the mail without an envelope

Fiona said...

Superb! You have such good ideas.

The cards are cute and I love the scrappy piecing. I think I'd be putting them in an envelope in case something happened to them on the way.

Those cards are just adorable Mel! You sure have been (and will be) busy, a rest sounds well deserved!

I love your little quote you wrote on them!!! So true.

I have never made a fabric PC but we do have 2 of them. My daughter collects PC's from all over the world and has close to 100 of them so far and she is only 2.5 years old!

Majority of them are from quilters that participate in my swaps. We hang them on her closet and bedroom doors (front and back) and she has learned so much form all the picture of what different things are! :) ~Bonnie
