I was keeping this Project Spectrum postcard a secret until I knew it was safely in the hands of its intended recipient. Amy has written to say that her postcard for me is in the mail and, believe me, I'm looking forward to it.
Amy, you see, is a real artist, not a poser like me. She has a lovely website to showcase her talent with fabric, paint, jewelry, paper and more. My own work is strictly amateur in comparison. I'm thankful Amy was gracious enough not to comment on my rather suck-y stitchery, but focused instead on the knit features of the postcard.
In addition to the Baltimore Oriole hiding behind the knit pocket, I tucked a fuzzy yellow mini-chick inside, along with a dried orange-y colored rosebud. Her two little boys got a kick out of that, according to Amy.
The back carries a straight-forward message, applicable in any number of circumstances:
Fun project. I'm already planning my postcard for May and my head is stuck on that William Carlos Williams poem with the phrase "asphodel, that greeny flower . . ."
