Finishing and Finding on Monday

Despite having the flu....I did manage to finish up my fabric post cards for January. I feel a little HEAVENLY HAPPY this week! So some cozy angel kitties are making joyful, peaceful wishes for the world on the sparkling stars this month! I made an archealogical discovery this afternoon while in pursuit of stitchery patterns to do while watching the INAUGURATION tomorrow! And I found some LONG LOST and LONGED AFTER patterns...particularly, these three! When I do an organization...I really do a put it away organization! I found these at the back end of my "teacher's room" in our basement! The Rumpled Quilts projects are bean bag things...perfect for my little mermaid girl and her underwater props! (they look great with those Bali Batiks!) The Mumm's pattern for the gingerbread people I've been wanting to do with some adorable g-people fabric I have had a long time! And the little paper piecing gardening quilt from HM Designs...well, I'm a gardener....it's so cute and would make perfect gifts for my gardening friends!
But....I've got to finish my current projects and WISPs before I start something new! But these are so tempting.....

In my diggings I found some other interesting things....later...

We're off to watch the BIG EVENT at a place with CNN and BBC (in English!)...waiting such a long time for this happy day! And allow me to say it one more time...I"m PROUD to be an AMERICAN! Democracy does work! May we all come together for the GREATER GOOD!

Your postcards are gorgeous. I saw some exhibited at a quilt show last year and thought 'what a great idea'.
Looks like lots of interesting 'rediscovered' projects to do. You are going to be busy :)

I'll be with you tomorrow!!! I cancelled all work and am having a special dinner. Today across America they had a call to do any act of service in honor of the change and in remembrance that the CHANGE is OUR SERVICE to each other....as Oprah put it...you can FEEL the vibration of the change. I'm so tickled my kids are old enough to really grasp and FEEL exactly what is happening.
I SO wish you lived next door...we'd be up to 2 or 3 every night!!!! My neighbor just found the fabric i had run out of for my fall quilt...i was so discouraged I just put it away...3 months later at sale table in another state (I'd already tried to get it online and no such luck) there it was...and she still had my swatch in her purse from when we had last gone searching...NOW that is a miracle...a little blown kiss from God to me...just cause he knew I really cared.
Anyway...LOVE YOU and I'll be thinking of you tomorrow.
