Envelope Wall Hanging

Lana made this.
It is 3 dimensional, so I had to work to get the inside of the envelope quilted.
Leaves in the outside and stippling on the rest.

Design Wall Monday

 I'm linking to Small Quilts Doll Quilt's Design Wall Monday
The hummingbird blocks from last month are done.
I need to find a sashing I like to finish this top off. 
I have two of the bullseye block sewn together.
Didn't have lots of these, so decided to stretch it a little.
Thanks, Judy

postcaeds



Thank you Miriam for the Book of Kells postcard for the stamp swap. I find it so interesting to see the stamps from other countries. I think our postcard swaps are my only international correspondence. It is beautiful, with the netting and your border stitching. Thank you for swapping with me.

Miriam, your poppy for the April Lottery is beautiful. Your embellishments are fabulous! I love poppy fields full of color. Thank you.

Sheree, your animal lottery postcard is adorable. Love the sock monkey and the cat and the chicken and butterfly. So adorable, this house post card. Thank you for swapping with me.

Pat, I received your embroidered angel. My Mom loved angels, and she would have enjoyed this one with her light. Thank you for swapping with me.

I have a plan, but have not sew enough

2. Self Portrait Postcards

3. WITB
We actually did WITB for our shed.
What did we find, things to put in my memory quilts for my parents, chemicals, paints, tools, dust, more dust and lots of things we wanted and didn't want.

4. Bind CIL

5. Filing
Filed all my receipts that were collecting in this bag.
I keep one near the computer to stop things from going missing.
During a webinar that was having technical difficulties, I filed some of the things in there.
It still needs some help, but.....


6. Work on Mobile Home.
I am done with things for the mobile home until DH gets the carpets pulled out.
Once that is done, I have one more thing to do.
The things on the list right now are calling and cancelling services and making sure to have all the paperwork that is needed.
I should close on the mobile home on the 29th.
