It's just a cold.
That's my mantra right now. Chris got it about 4 days ahead of me (because he gave it to me) so I just watch him to see when it's going to finally leave this house. We're both fine, just tired and annoyed.
But I had some energy to do some sewing and these were perfect to work on. I 21 cards ready for backs. Why 21? Well, that's how many symmetrical diamonds that I could cut from the scraps. I would have been happier with 25 or 30 but this is what I got. I'll get the backs on them this week. I'll probably save serging the edges until I have all the cards ready for edging.
I started to sweep all this in the trash but I was lethargic and just listening to my book so I thought some mindless piecing might be good therapy.
It was good therapy because ti kept me from snacking and didn't require much thinking. That's a pretty big chunk of fabric from nothing. I don't know what I'll do with it. It could be cut into crumb blocks, made into placemats or even postcard backgrounds. But that takes thinking so it's going to get folded up and put away for now. What would you do with it?

Love the postcards. At first I thought it was a new quilt--which would be a great pattern.

The postcards look great - you could make a wall hanging out of them!

Those postcards would make an amazing quilt! Just sayin'

I think it would be great postcard backgrounds with a silver tree on it.

I had the same first impression as Claire did, and thought it was a quilt. The first thing that came to my mind, regarding the piece of fabric was that it looked like a winter ice storm, so Wanda's idea of a silver tree makes perfect sense.

The postcards are fabulous! The pieced scraps - maybe use it for backs.

So sorry you are under the weather! Mine brought it to me too - they can stop giving us these kinda gifts right? Your postcards look great and you have a new piece of fabric!
