Postcard fun

I’d intended to sew some when we got home from dinner last night but after watching TV for a while, and then catching up on the computer I was tired – Keith had gone to bed hours earlier but I knew I wouldn’t sleep….so what did I do? Decided I should pull out those selvages I’d been saving and make some postcards. It was fun and I could have made more but I’m tired and I’m going to head to bed.
