I just finished up my swap postcards for February. My theme this month is "I'm still sleeping". Being a former wildlife biologist, I knew I had to do a hibernating animal. Originally I was going to do a cute curled up little mouse or squirrel, and even made an attempt, but didn't really like it, so I went to the "dark side". I used to work a lot at night with owls and bats in my old job, so I love bats, but I hope the recipient likes it!
I thought I'd share all of January's postcards with you too. I joined 2, something I rarely do, but they were so much fun. The themes were "Embellished Owls", and "Year of the Dragon".
I'm also doing a postcard swap with some other on-line friends, but the deadline is a few weeks away. I have those started, but don't have much to show right now.
I thought I'd also show you the new home of our "barn quilt". I love it!!
It's Tuesday, so I'm joining up with Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story's blog. Come see what other folks are up to!
On a final note, yesterday was a dark day for me (maybe it influenced my design?), as I got a robo-call in the morning from the school that both my kids attend informing us of a threat that had locked down the school, and sent police to their campus. I can't remember the last time I've felt that kind of panic, and knowing of the morning's school shooting in Ohio made things worse. Everything was fine, but I was incredibly happy to see my kids after school. I actually helped out at their school this morning, and everything seems back to normal. Once again, though, it's a reminder of what I take for granted each and every day. My heart aches for those who had a different outcome yesterday.
