The insanity postcard
This is what happens when you are searching a shelf and find a box and wonder what's in it.
In this case the box had these things in it. There once was a Accuquilt Go! die that made these 3 sizes of triangles. I ordered it thinking that the triangles were bigger and was surprised they were so small. I should have sent it back right away but, no, I had to play with it.
Like every 5 year old I quickly tired of that game and put the bits in a box where they have comfortably resided for a few years.
Of course when I reopened the box I was most fascinated with the tiny ones.
I was listening to a book, it was evening...let's see how many I can put together before bed.
This many....in 3 hours. Only one thing to do with it at this point.
Make a postcard! I did finish off the edge with a purple satin stitch but I forgot to take a photo.
Usually when I make a postcard design I make at least 2 so that I can keep one for myself.
Not this time.
This is a true on-of-a-kind card that I sent to my best friend for her birthday. She loved it and so do I but I'll not make another.
Today I'm off to my monthly sewing days with my quilt club. I'll finish the autumnal Hunter's Star and start the gray/brown one this weekend. the weather is crummy so it's a perfect weekend for sewing.

It is just so satisfying to use the little things sometimes! I have a bag of leftover reds/grays from so many snowman table runners that I really want to make something with I am just not sure what yet so they reside on floor just waiting for some attention.

You just never know what might be residing in those mystery boxes! And I can't even begin to imagine sewing all those itty bitty little triangles together to make a postcard. I thought they were way larger than they obviously are!

Holy Yikes! You've found your "even I'm not that demented" line. But they are awfully cute.
