My postcard group has a monthly lottery. Here is my entry for November. This has been a very productive weekend. Also in the "done" column are 45 name tags for my guild's Christmas party!

This was the perfect postcard swap. I don't know who comes up with the themes, but this one came at just the right time. The theme was pink and brown. Last month I made a quilt with those exact colors. The postcards were made with leftover scraps from that quilt. Just to personalize them a bit, I sewed each swappers name onto one of the strips in their postcard. What's the best thing about this swap? I used stash!

I am on the Christmas party committee for my quilt guild. This is going to be the name tag for this years party. Attendees will write their names in the middle, cream strip. Some will have green ribbons, others will have red. Truth be known, this was a bit tricky to execute. I knew what I wanted, but I wasn't sure how I was going to do it. I ended up using a technique similar to paper piecing by drawing the design on Peltex and sewing the fabric from the opposite side. I cut out the ornament shape after everything was fused into place.
