Snail Mail to Cheer Me Up

Laid low on the sofa yesterday with the cold, watching movies amd feeling pretty sorry for myself, I was cheered up by the arrival of two letters from America - reminds me of a song by The Proclaimers - The first was from Susan Lenz, CYBER FYBER, with her postcard and ATC which I had put my name to. This made me put machine into action today to finish the postcard I had put together but had yet to sew together. Hopefully I shall put them in the post very soon.

Susan's postcard 7 and ATC 116

My Postcard for Susan's exhibition being held next January

My next letter was from Jennifer, Infinitely More Monkeys blog, who spured me on to give the workroom a good clean! Jennifer has been showing photographs from a pile she found in an antique shop in Chicago, Illinois on her blog and I happened to comment on them. She kindly offered to send me some and here they are safely arrived.


There is something sad about photographs without a family to own them. It has got me to thinking as to what will eventually become of the albums I have made once there is no-one to know who we are. These photos will be given a good home and I will think of the people and wonder what became of them. I'm not sure when it will be done... but I have an idea of incorporating the photograph images in a piece of textile art.

You have been busy again! You have my sympathy for the cold - I have also been suffering. Particularly frustrating as I have the last part of a singing course to go to tomorrow night. Could be close harmony honking.

Oh, I'd love to see you use the photos in some of your artwork! Sounds like the perfect way to honor them to me. Glad you're enjoying them in any case.
