More Valentines for Soldiers

I'm wishing there were more hours in a day. Only five postcards were completed today. That initial burst of enthusiasm for a project is when a lot gets done ... and I'm reluctant to do anything but. The above land/sea scape pieces are constructed from the trimmings of three projects. The sky parts are from the shelf foreground of one of the shoe blocks of "Imelda's Dream" quilt. I don't recognize where the others are from.
These two are purely textural. They're comprised of a leftover chenille fabric that I had created for a section of a jacket I named "Where's Elvis?" using various techniques from Judith Murrah's book, Jacket Jazz.

I can't wait to get back at these tomorrow.

I get so much enjoyment (and stimulation) from viewing your work.
As usual your Ortwork has strong appeal,and your faux offcuts ended up as humbug shaped bags!

Nellie, these postcards are wonderful! What a great way to use up leftover chenille fabric.
