More Postcards

To my surprise and delight, I have received a commission for a dozen of my oak leaf fabric postcards. The original background fabric was used up on the first set of 8, and there was nothing similar in my stash. However, the customer has total faith in my judgement of a replacement fabric. I've chosen two batiks, as he also doesn't care if they are not all the same. Of course, this means I will be returning to the bit of angst generated over choosing the proper color thread to quilt them with. The "perfect" combination may include some of the colors I've already tried, but I suspect there may be better ones as well. Let the play begin!

P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment on my anniversary post to sate my curiosity about how you keep up with my blog. I'll be making a random selection from those comments on Friday, and sending the winner a little gift of appreciation.

Great news on the commission - I'm sure you will solve any difficulties as you go along.

I keep in touch with you as Mags Ramsey does - your blog is linked on a side bar of my own, so I automatically get updates.

Congrats on the commission. I can't even imagine someone wanting to pay for my work, but I do understand why they would pay for one of your great pieces.
