Christmas postcards

These are my 2 fabric postcards for the guild postcard swap. The santa card is from a block I never used. I just added boots to finish the block and then put on eyes and a moustasche. It was also the first time I used TimTex. I usually just use whatever I have on hand, interfacing, some batting whatever, so my postcards are pretty floppy. I am surprised that I like how the TimTex turned out. One lady I know uses the interfacing that you use in curtains and that turns out nice, too, not as puffy as the TimTex.

Here's a photo of my Batman tea cozy. Tonya (Lazy Gal) and I were discussing Batman fabrics so this photo is for her. I can't survive a day at work without a pot of tea!

looks like batman is ready to protect that tea from anything! :-)

the santa card is a wonderful adaptation of an old block. I may have to copy....

wonderful tea cozy. I love it. I must drink 8 mugs of tea a day, but I make them one at a time - nothing so refined as a pot around here. cute postcards too!
