Postcards and things....

I recently took part in a postcard swap hosted by Sheila...... the theme being Summer/Beach

This time I swapped with Joanna from Massachusetts, USA

This is the postcard I received:....



I just love all the detail... do you see the footprints coming out the water?....

I took a bit of artistic licence with mine.... and turned a foundation pieced block into an interpretation of a swirly sand beach .....



I had prepared a whole bunch of mouse string bags from my scraps and finally have them finished.... 


I've kept one for my sewing room.... one needs a mouse in the sewing room????  The rest have gone into the giftie box....


I have been trying out a few new low calorie recipes ... this one was a great success and of course nice and easy and quick to do....


I didn't have all the ingredients in THIS recipe (I've found a few recipes I like on this blog), so put in what veges I had... and I left out the sugar in the marinade and ate it on some brown rice with a side salad...  the leftovers were lovely cold the next day too.


Righto, Gotto Go....  it's that time of day when the apron gets donned and I search for food!!!
