Look what dropped through my letter box...

This one-of-a-kind stitched postcard, handmade with love all for me winged its way from the US across oceans and land to arrive today, safely, in my letterbox. 

Thank you so much Susan Vincent Molinaro, for the care your took in designing something so thoughtful.  I love the phrase on the back:

"like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives".

I need a REALLY big hourglass to have time for all of life's adventures!!


I have put it up in The Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap Flickr Group, where a few others have started to arrive - go and have a look.  It's so interesting to see how everyone has interpreted the theme 'time' differently.

Life has got in the way for a few people (which is of course as it should be!), so the postcards will be drifting in slowly over the next couple of weeks.  I will feature some of them on here, but do keep an eye on the Flickr Group for updates, and don't forget to upload yours when it arrives, and leave your link in the comments below! 

Note to participants: If you aren't a member of Flickr and/or don't have a blog, please do send a photo of the card you receive to me, and I will share it here


  1. I looooove your idea of the stitched postcard swap...i'm just sorry i missed the time!!

  2. How exciting to receive such mail! I didn't hear about the swap until too late, I hope you do another one sometime. I'll take a look at the flickr group to feel part of it all.

  3. what a great postcard you received, Beth! it is amazing...

    BTW: I believe the quote on the back came from the opening of a long running soap opera in the US: Days of Our Lives!

    i do hope you will consider hosting this postcard swap again... =-)

  4. How cool is that!

    I came by to welcome you to SITS! We’re happy to have you with us!

  5. I love the postcard! I wish I had found your site in time to make a postcard to send out. Oh well, I may just need to make some postcards and send them out into the world somewhere... anywhere that they may be needed.

  6. Hey Beth,

    Thank you so much for organising this. Was load of fun. I sent mine two days ago.

    Received mine today!
