My Contribution To The Postcard Project
This is my little contribution to the postcard project to save the Rupert VT post office. That place needs saved!
Jane said the Post Mistress is a quilter so I went with a patchwork theme. Imagine how fun it is for her to watch these come in. I glued down the papers, ribbons and embellishments then machine stitched them in place. I didn't add anything too dimensional since I figured it wouldn't help the cause if it broke one of the USPS sorting machines on the way there.
I hand stitched around the outside edge with a blanket stitch, something I apparently have little talent for - LOL! The heart is cut from an advertisement selling stamps for collectors. Over 600 postcards have been received so far and she is offering a give-away based on cards received February 22 - 27. I am accidentally just in time since I dropped mine in the mail on the way to work this morning. Fingers crossed!
