Trees, by Kathryn

Trees by Kathryn Watson, Fabric Postcard, (4" x 6")
Photographed by Ku'ulei

The Internet and the world of blogging has extended my circle of friendships globally. I'm sure this is true for many of you. I received this wintry fabric postcard from Kathryn of Catonsville, Maryland. This is not a postcard exchange, although I will send one of my creations to her. Kathryn is a visitor to my blog who prefers to send her comments by e-mail, which is most welcomed. Our conversations have been delightful, and she freely shares her wisdom and artwork with me.

These two trees were free-motion embroidered onto stabilizer and added to the background fabric with more stitching. She made these as a part of her online class with Quilt University. Her wonderful postcard reminds me of our recent snowfall on Thursday.

The snow was falling when I took these photos. This is our back yard, one of my hibiscus trees.

Another shot of the tree with a wider view. The snow was falling for about a half an hour. Within a few hours, the snow covered everything like a blanket. Schools closed early. It took Tremayne an hour and a half to drive home from work, which usually takes him a half hour. I missed having snow at Christmastime. The snow was a treat for those like me, who can enjoy it from home.

Thanks for the excellent postcard, Kathryn. Talk to you soon!

The snow looks like fun. We have had very little this year, I think it all went south.
