More of my Postcard collection






























I love getting postcards from all over. I have many friends that send them to me when they travel and I also joined Postcrossing, a great sight for exchanging postcards.


I'm just teaching myself to crochet. I haven't done much yet. I have a few things on the go and find that my biggest problem seems to be tension. I think that practice and time will help with this.

This is the back and front of my first crochet dishcloth that I made for an exchange in the group At My House . The perfectionist in me would have liked to rip it out and redo it but I also know that I would never be completely pleased. I'm going to keep practicing until I get it better. I'm going to try some more of them when my other projects are finished.



I also made this potholder for the same exchange. A bit simpler but still needs work. Jamie was impressed.






Hearts Exchange

Tato, a great friend and the owner of one of my favorite yahoo groups "coffeecake" organized a gfelt heart exchange this winter. I really enjoyed it. Here are the hearts that I sent out












I received some really nice hearts. From some of my great friends
