I am happy that I finally feel that this process is easier than my first couple of times framing my own work. Oh it was SUCH a learning curve. I really wasn't expecting it to feel easier. That's a good thing.

It's a very nit-picky process. People tend to look reeeeally closely at my work so it's important to clean the glass so it is completely dust & fibre free. I swear I hold my breath the whole time. It's pretty tense. ; ) So now for the rest of the week, I am finishing a few dozen postcards. They are all simple 4x6 inch prairie scenes in fabric with no fancy threadwork. No two are alike which is pretty cool I think. They are my 'art to mail'. I have protector sleeves on the way for when I put them up for sale. I have more stamps I LOVE coming in the mail eventually. In the mean time, my job now is to trim up the loose threads and stamp all the backs for Sunday.
Fancy-schmancy. : )

p.s. I must give a big warm THANK YOU and round of applause to all the fabulous people involved with TN&TN. The Canadian WIP Wednesdays have been a real treat. Feature Fridays is quickly creating some terrific connections. And Rita (my new co-mod) has been such a great person to get to know. She's in Ontario and I'm in Saskatchewan. We've never met before. We phone each other often now. Can you believe her family immigrated to Canada on the same line of ships that my family did in the 1950's!? She also has no middle name, just like me. WHAT ARE THE ODDS? What a small, small world.
