Fun new hobby!!



Along with teaching a couple days a week, working on scrapbooks for a client, doing all those household things that need to be done and taking care of the four furbabies and two boys I have joined a Fabric Postcard group.. Not only that, I kind of volunteered to set it up.. I think the majority of the work in setting it up is over.. I think it will be AMAZING>. there are 23 ladies from all over the world.. We have committed to a one year time frame and will send out two postcards a month.. Since I just started this new hobby I hope I can keep up with them. some of them sound like awesome quilters.. Here are two more cards I have been practicing on.
One is a Santa that I pieced.. think I need a plainer fabric in the background. The other uses my favorite mary engelbreit fabric.. with pieced cherries on it and felt leaves and stems..

So great to read that you found a new hobby! Your fabic cards are wonderful! I love the cherries and the great background fabric!

I was into quilting and patchwork before I discovered stamping and cardmaking. I have a lot of fabric, and from time to time I do some sewing. It feels great to see things come together 'under the needle'! ;o)

Wow Elaine. These are great! I have to go and get some more material for variety. Since I am NOT a sewer I can't say I have any laying around. LOL

I've been wanting to try my hand at these fabric postcards, too, Elaine. Next time you set up a swap, let me know! I love your recent fabric projects!

I love the Cherry one too cute, the Santa is neat too, I agree with you on the planner bg it took me a couple of seconds to figure it out, but I do like the fabrics! Good Luck on keeping up with it all, will enjoy watching what you come up with.
