More fabric post cards from the Stitchinfingers Fabric Postcard 2012 Birthday Swap I'm part of .  These have come from all over....Ireland, USA, South Africa, and Canada.

Closer to home, this one is from Kaite who very cleverly added references to my chooks..and matched the heart to the basket she sent me a while back for PIF-Handmade. Thanks Kaite, lovely surpise!

and this one's from my friend Lajla....more of a mug mat she said, than a postcard.  Too nice to worry about spilling tea on it.

I found this blooming prettily in my garden this morning....a foxglove! I planted a few of these back in autumn, they're not a sub-tropical plant, but I thought I'd give them a try, but they didn't do very much, grew a few extra leaves was about all.  I thought it probably turned too hot and humid too soon for them so put it down to experience.  And now this pretty flower has popped up.

Look at the colours and spots inside that throat.

Enjoy your weekend, whatever you're doing.  It's cool here, so maybe some gardening for me.


  1. Scrumptious wishes from all over the globe. It is an amazing world from Birthday wishes to flowers when not expected. You have a good weekend too.

  2. Scrumptious...a great word Terry to describe all things good :)

  3. a wonderful variety of BD FPCs, they're all so different. and didn't you notice - i also referenced your kitties.

    funny name 'foxglove' - do foxes really wear gloves and if so would they look like that flower?

  4. Hi Dallas, postcatds are great aren't they? how's your foot.

  5. I did notice the kitties peeking out Kaite.

    you've heard of foxes in socks, so why not in gloves? I think it's old English corrupted, folk's gloves, as in the fairy folk and over time it's become 'fox'. I like the idea of foxes wearing dainty gloves more.
