Reaching my hand into the mailbox is a favourite part of my day; you never know what surprises you may pull out. Perhaps it's because I grew up at a rural Post Office, but the fascination with mail never grows old. Imagine my delight when I reached in and retrieved this fabulous fabric postcard from Kate in Ontario. Kate has recently completed a Maritime Beauty and she used her scraps to send a greeting.here. I love her title ("Maritime Cutie") almost as much as I love the postcard! Thanks so much, Kate. I imagine my mailman was intrigued by this unusual item in his mailbag.
http://bronzewombat.blogspot.ca, from Bronze Wombat fame. Hailing from Australia, Jennifer purchased fabrics for her project on trip to Canada last fall and sought to make this a reminder of her visit. Most were purchased in Victoria, B.C. and she chose colours to represent sea, sand, rocks and sky - things which impressed her as being very "Canadian". With permission, I nabbed this shot of her fabrics from her blog, but please visit to see her pieced top: it sparkles!
Thanks to both Kate and Jennifer for great work.
