Thread stitched postcard

On my at home days, I seem to float along in a world of color, line and texture. It's seems to be a phase I'm going through this summer. While I'm eating breakfast, I'm thinking maybe I'll do a crossword and skip the sketch, but then I start picking at my drawing things and before I know it, I've picked up the pencil.
I did an interpretation of my flower jar (I say that because I edited it a bit to fit my small sketchbook) both at breakfast and lunch.
I thought you might like to see my view while at the table.
 I think it's finished.
My lunch today; I'm always trying to be healthy! I can manage to sabotage it with my sweet tooth. Spinach and lettuce from my garden, veggies, an egg, sardines and a fresh banana bran muffin.

Once the mist let up this morning, I took a little stroll around the garden. I planted cucumber in my usual flower garden since I lost my veggie garden space this year.  It has decided to climb around the holly bush.
Finally, I've finished the fiber art postcard that I want to put in the mail to someone special.
Although I've made many postcards, I've never actually tried to mail one before. We'll see how that goes tomorrow.
Since it is going to be mailed (fingers crossed), I restrained myself in the end from adding too much detail.
My husband is on his way home. He is starting his vacation. we will be making a couple of small trips and have some visitors --my son and his wife--so my I may be away from the blog for a bit.

That regular sketching really helps to keep creativity flowing. Thanks for inspiring me to get out and draw my wild sweet peas today.
