Prayers and Postcards

This is my first mini quilt for Jenny's "Give thanks" BOM wall hanging and today I am giving thanks that the prayers Jenny requested for north Queensland yesterday were answered and that, although there is terrible devastation, there was no loss of life when cyclone Yasi hit.
I haven't felt up to doing any sewing this week but did receive the last of the latest fabric postcards in the current swap I've been doing.  This is with BQLPC and is a lot of fun (and you don't have to do every swap).  The theme was "Inspired by ny favourite music" and these are the cards I was sent:

This is Pauline's beautiful interpretation of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Dragonflies"

and Jacquie loves Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition"

Janet's favourite, the Duet from "The Pearl Fishers" by Bizet inspired this delicate design

Two ladies decided to base their cards on a genre of music rather than a specific piece, 

Jan loves jazz

and Annette was moved by hearing her brother sing as a soloist in their church choir

My cards for the swap were inspired by Holst's Planets Suite.  They were all slightly different but this is the one I kept for myself.
It is so exciting to wait for the postman when cards are due and to see how the themes have been interpreted.


  1. Thanks for sharing them! They are all lovely! I do like yours the best.

  2. The little house looks cute! I am still working on my wall hanging ;o} It's almost the weekend and I cant wait although I think DH wants me to help clean out and re-organise the garage, hopefully there will still be time for some sewing.
    Have a wonderful weekend!
