Envelope Doodles

Good Morning, Quilters, Doodlers, and Letter-Writers (snail mail, that is!)

When is the last time YOU received a hand-written letter?

Perhaps a better question to ask…When is the last time YOU wrote a hand written letter?

The art of letter writing is on the decline (along with cursive…)

It’s too bad because it is such a gracious gift to give and to receive.

(BTW-I have a relative whose 365 challenge for 2016 is to write a letter every day!)

Perhaps we would be more interested in writing letters if we remembered it can be a creative endeavor.

So pull out your envelopes and a red pen or marker.

Doodle Nora’s Rose (above)  or Faye’s Flower (below)  or any of YOUR doodles.

Doodle Envelopes, Zentangle, Lori Kennedy…and send your Mom, Dad, sister, brother, cousin, friend….a hand written letter in a decorated envelope.

Who do YOU know that needs a little pick-me-up?

Send them the gracious gift of your time.

Good Morning, Quilters!

This is one UFO off my list!  It started as a tutorial–“A” is for Apple.

I used Sulky 40 wt Rayon in white to make the apples “pop”.

Then added Sulky 40 wt Rayon in red to create a more subtle, texturized background.Apple, FMQ, Tablerunner, Quilts
