Our little Grace had her 7th birthday yesterday.  I think it amazes me more now than when my kids were little at how fast the time goes by.

Another birthday, another postcard.  Sometimes the postcards I make are great and sometimes they are okay.  This one goes in the okay pile.


The cats are cute.  But I do wish I had used the gray thread on both of them instead of the black.  It's just a bit too dark.  Cats do have crooked ears don't they?  These certainly do.  That gives them character. This looked a little better when I drew it out on paper.

Well, now that is it Friday I'm about as happy as can be.  I'm ready for a Saturday of sewing.  And after seeing a beautiful pink and gray sunrise I'm ready to do some more sewing on the pink "I am" quilt.

It's hard for me to see colors like this and not try to translate them into quilts.  Do you do that too?  There is obviously way too much dirt on my windshield.  I started to write bugs but it's still a little too early for them.

Have a great Friday and an even better weekend.
