Postcard Friendship Friday

Here is a postcard featuring two little children who look as if they would rather be doing something other then posing before an old crazy quilt that is being used as a backdrop for their photo.  Cute little kids and lovely old quilt.  You may or may not know, but quilts are a very important part of my life and have been for getting close to 40 years now.   It is an obsession in a way.   The back of this card has nothing written on it,  but I have found another card----

which is also in the field of needle arts.  This one you could send to a friend as part of a promotion for the Modern Handcraft company in Kansas City.  The instructions are in the message on the card which shows some really great vintage embroidery and quilt patterns.  I have started doing embroidery again and really enjoy it.  Nice to have something to pick up and work on while watching tv or just relaxing.  Takes no effort getting ready - just work as long as you wish then put it away until the next time. 
This one went to Pansy Story in Topeka, Kansas.  Hope Pansy liked it.  Stop by Beth's blog to see all the other postcards this PFF.   Beth is our hostess for this fun blog hop.  Have a Happy PFF.(Click to enlarge) 


  1. I love that card and the looks on their faces!

  2. The kids are cute, even if they don't like their picture taken. I remember the cards for the patterns ... my mother and my granny. Memory day! Happy PFF!

  3. Sweet little children but they do look so unhappy! :)

    I do wish I could do needlework. I am useless that way.

  4. That must have been their nth time posing for the camera - no wonder they don't look happy! hahaah. I have always wanted to learn how to quilt... I had a quilted blanket as a present from my dear friend and I treasure it so much I rarely use it (for fear of wearing them out). I know how to crochet though :) Have a great Sunday!

  5. I love that card too. It reminds me of a vintage picture I just purchased the other day for $1.

    I'd love to see some of your quilts. I bet they're absolutely beautiful.
