Harmony diversion


I thought I would practice posting with a photo in preparation for the Harmony reveal on September 15th.
If I can't make this work, I might need more remedial help from Linda!
Norma, a friend of my mothers', will be 92 on August 22. Although my mother died in 2003, my sister & I have kept in touch
with her. I looked in a number of stores for an appropriate birthday card but had no luck, either too cute, or too serious.
Nothing was "just right", sooooo, last minute, decided to make a fabric card to enclose with my letter and MM blog print out.
I gave myself until 4:00 yesterday to complete ( about 1 hour ) so that I could bring the quite "hefty" package to the post office to be weighed & mailed. Had I given myself more time, would have probably made something more complicated. Here goes...lets see if the photo of the card shows up on the blog! ( I'm keeping my fingers crossed! )


  1. PHEW!!!!!!!! I DID it! I'm SOOOOOO proud of myself!

  2. Thatawaytogo, Andrea! Beautiful, and it enlarges! Congratulations all around. That is going to fill her with energy as it did me!

  3. It's beautiful Andrea! What a fun gift!

  4. Thanks Carolyn,
    Norma will appreciate it & I think it will make her smile.

  5. Your posting of the photo worked like a charm, and the card is fantastic! I am sure she will LOVE it, much more than any Hallmark card that she's ever recevied!

  6. Great looking card and a winner. I am sure she will love it - this hand made work is a very personal sentiment, right from the heart.
