Postcards

It’s been a few days since I’ve worked in my studio.
I have been with my grandson, and visiting a friend.
When I returned, there were things I needed to do before I could start up again.
I also got a pneumonia shot that left me with a very sore and heavy arm.
It took two days to get the use of my arm back.

Today, I thread sketched two postcards.
One is for my grandson, to let him know I enjoyed our time together.
He has a new cat that he was very proud to introduce to me.
And, I couldn’t leave out his dog.
So, I drew both of them on his card.

I just booked a B&B in Georgetown, Texas for a few days during Spring Break.
My granddaughter and I will enjoy the sites of Georgetown.
So, I made her a postcard to let her know we have a date.
She loves unicorns.

Both of these cards are thread sketched and colored with fabric crayons and markers.
I ran out of Wonder-Under, so I will have to complete these tomorrow.

I am reading the book , Art and Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland.
I sort of need a boost.
Thanks for recommending the book, Tierney.

  1. I love your postcards! Your cat is so full of kitty happiness 😻
    My mother has been doing etegami cards and this is what yours remind me of but better because you stitch them too.
    I have made one watercolor card and need to set aside time for more because it is so relaxing. It seems like something you would like to read about, not that you are lacking for creative endeavors!

    1. Etegami is so cool! I love that “It’s okay to be awkward.” Thanks for sending this link. I once had my first graders paint with coffee. The room smelled like Starbucks and the kids kept telling me they were hungry.☕️I plan to read more about etegami. Thanks!

      1. Oh, great way of phrasing it. Write the names on a piece of paper, toss them in a bag and pick one out. Then you don’t have to feel guilty about choosing one over the other. At least you can get started on something then. Have FUN! 🙂
