Marvellous Mail

One of the best bits about taking part in the Postman's Knock postcard swap is the anticipation and then excitement of receiving something through the post other than junk mail or bills!


So when this envelope arrived for me from Jo this morning it caused great excitement.... and even more when I found a wrapped parcel inside.


I wasn't disappointed... as this was the wonderful postcard wrapped up inside...

Which opened up to reveal a beautiful butterfly. What a super interpretation of my theme of revealment and concealment. Thank you Jo... I love it!


I had to send a postcard to Jill this week, whose theme is windows... so I chose to stitch a "Room with a View". You can see more of the postcards swapped this week on the Postman's Knock blog... despite problems signing in and out of blogger... leaving comments....

and not to mention the blimmin' spacing which I still can't sort out no matter how much I play around with the html!

    The signing in/out on blogger is a current known problem, found via the Help a solution which worked for me - clear out your cache.

  3. I'm glad now that I didn't choose Blogger,although I'm sure Wordpress will probably have plenty enough glitches of its own! Love the postcards - they are so beautifully thought out.
