Rainbow

My PC has been playing up and Monday it decided it just wasn't going to start up, luckily dh is a computer tech so within a couple of days here I am up and running again...

Here is what I have been working on these last couple of days. Yes you've guessed it another set of postcards from my long list of swap commitments that I need to catch up on. The swap theme is rainbows, as it was only a small swap group I decided to indulge myself and spent a lot longer making these cards than perhaps I usually would do. Over 150 tiny scraps individually hand sewn each attached using a bead to secure each. Is it immodest to say I just LOVE the way they turned out? I think part of the reason I really like them is that they were so much fun to make.

Since my Mum passed away Rainbows have become an important symbol for me, on many of the important days that have been and gone since she died I have seen rainbows. It might sound daft but I take them as a sign that Mum is smiling on me on those days, so I hope I have done this theme justice.

Well worth it though the card is fantastic.

Rainbows are very special things aren't they.
