A Beautiful Postcard and a few finishes

Good morning friends! The sun is finally shining and the skies are pretty and blue today.Here in Kentucky we have been having a lot of rain for the last week.I don't really mind the rain as it is refreshing the land by giving the flowers and fields a much needed drink.I know that the grass in the yard has really jumped up,time to hop on the mower and get it taken care of before it gets out of hand .

I wanted to share a beautiful postcard that Danice of Homespun Hannah's sent to me .If you click on her name it will take you to her post about postcards becoming obsolete.The really neat thing about this postcard is that Danice made it!! Here let me just show you what I  am talking about with the card,it is great.

Thanks so much Danice!When ever I see this postcard I will be sure to think of you.You are such a sweet and talented lady.

Since it has been raining this week I decided to finish up some on going projects.I had stitched these earlier in the Spring but never found the time to finish them.It may be getting late to use  them this season but I will have them for next year,Well that is if I don't forget where I store them.LOL!
I just loved this pattern!

 The next one is probably my most favorite of these finishes...

Here is a close up of how I painted the frame,it started off  a yucky yellow.

This is another Spring stitching piece that was made into a ditty bag
Last but not least is this punch needle strawberry.It is not that great because the rabbit is kind of all wonky but it is a first attempt at doing such a project.Gotta take the bad with the good and laugh at your mistakes.

Well at the start of this post I wished you a good morning at the end I will wish you a good afternoon.It has taken me nearly four hours to get my pics uploaded to blogger.Yes I am frustrated but my  mouth has not uttered one bad sound.LOL! Honestly  I can not blame blogger,I had my camera set to large and the  pics were huge that I was trying to upload.Sadly, I did not figure that out until the last two pics were uploaded.

I hope to be back in a couple of days with more pics and another post until then stay safe my friends.May you all be richly blessed.Hugs,Jen

Your rabbit is not that wonky at least you can tell its a rabbit. I resize my photos before I post on blogger then it doesn't take so long.
