Fun Postcard Swap



What a day brightener! My postcard arrived from the second round of the swap I am in on an online group. Is this not adorable or what??? The back is just as cute as the front. I decided not to post the back, though, as it shows my address. People say not to allow this kind of personal info on the internet. This weekend I finished sewing the sashing and cornerstones onto Lee's Surrender. I took it to my LQS this morning to try to find a great fabric for the inner border--no luck. I already have a piece I like for the outer border. Will have to make a trek this week to some other shops. I know the perfect fabric is out there just waiting for me!!! Kansas City is experiencing some much needed rain! Hallelujah, a reprieve from watering the lawn! Temperature is down to 73 degrees, too. My kind of August. Thursday is my turn to host the mini-group. The members bring their own lunches and the host provides dessert and beverages. I am trying a new recipe for Chocolate Zucchini cake--fingers crossed. Also found a yummy ice cream--white chocolate raspberry truffle. Hope this will substitute well for frosting. Now onto cleaning.

Darling card...I've got ideas for several to send to my Mom and Mother-inlaw if I ever get my stash organized. Have fun finding just the right border.

That's adorable!

You could always cut a small rectangular slip of the sticky part of post-it paper out and re-photograph the back of the card, but with the post-it paper stuck on over your addy.

Chocolate zucchini cake! If it turns out well, please post it. I like chocolate and I like zucchini, so maybe I would like them together. The postcard is darling!

Good luck with the border choice.

That is an adorable postcard. I've got to finish my birthday quilt so I can start making somemore postcards. They are just so much fun.

Sooo how was the cake?

You could put a bit of masking tape over the bits that you want ot keep private and shre the parts that you liked onthe back of the post card... Just an idea.
