My creation for today.

I've had such a lovely day.

Today I've made a postcard for a Russian friend. In fact I started yesterday by making the surface to paint on. I had some old cardboard that I glued cut up bookpapers on. When they was almost dry I laid them with pressure on over night. I made five.
At the back I used a thick sheet of paper, glued it down and then used my sewingmachine to sew around the edges. After the photographing I sprayed a coat of varnish on top of the front.

I'm quite pleased how it came out. It's called "Sisters" My thoughts are that we are sisters in Postcrossing. It was through postcrossing I came into contact with this girl.

It could be called " The first two members of Round Faces" too. I have been laughing/smiling all day of that possibility.

A small update on my training.

I'm sorry to say that something is wrong with my knees. I tend to believe that my runningshoes have to be replaced. So tomorrow I'll buy some new ones. I haven't been running for 40 years so that may be part of the problem too. At least I'm going to be careful, I don't want a long period of
inflammation. I have several types of cream to treat it with and be sure, I'm smearing.
Tomorrow it is time to run again but I think it's better to go for a quick walk.


All my crafting friends are coming tomorrow to the first meeting this year. I'm really looking forward to that. If I'm allowed I'll show some pics.

Take care everyone.


  1. The postcard is so cute. I'm sure she'll love it.

    Knees are my problem, too which is why I can't do any high impact exercise with running or jumping. I like more fluid movements like yoga or Tai Chi or the new program I'm doing now. It's much easier on joints.

  2. My ears perked up like a dog's when I heard PostCrossing. But first, I love your postcard. It is truly wonderful. The faces are delightful, and the way you handled the scarves really unifies them.
    If you haven't been running in 40 years, you might want to start out by walking. Running is hard on your knees. And I hope those new shoes are beautiful!
