Fall Mountain, Handmade Fabric Postcard, Autumn Quilted Greeting Card, Postcard Art, Fiber Art, Greeting Card, Landscape Art,

Fall, autumn mountain landscape fiber art with a tree. The colors in the mountains are shades of rust, orange and gold. Two lines of stitching hold the card together and give it a different look. Handmade quilted fabric postcard by Linda Johnson at Sew Upscale. Mail it to a friend and when received, since it is a piece of art, it can be framed and kept forever.

Frame it, mail it, or stand it on an easel. I'll even put a magnet on the back upon request. It would really dress up your refrigerator or file cabinet.

The last picture shows how 3 cards could be grouped together and framed.

*4” by 6” quilted fabric postcard
*Stitched on the edge with rust colored thread.
*Can be mailed in the clear mailer provided.
*Colors are shades of red, orange,copper, rust, green and blue.
*The back is a white fabric that can be written on with a fine line permanent pen.
*Created by using layers of fabric and stitching each layer.

Each quilted fabric postcard is individually made with much attention to detail.

Send this quilted postcard as a greeting card for any occasion: Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, birthday, graduation. When it is received, it can be framed or displayed on an easel and kept forever. Send this postcard art quilt to remind a friend of a special outing or evening.

Sunday Spiritual - God's Accuracy

We have an amazing God!

How Great is our God!!! Our Creator and Redeemer . . . and do we THINK about it ??? God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.. . . . ..For example: the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days; those of the canary in 14 days; -those of the barnyard hen in 21 days; The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days; those of the mallard in 35 days; the eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)

God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant.
The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four  fulcrums so  that it can rise from the ground easily.

The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first. How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!

God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains .

-Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
-Each orange has an even number of segments.
-Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.
-Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.
-Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.

-The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.

-All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold all even numbers.

God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed !

The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One Who made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end.

I HOPE YOU FIND THIS AS FASCINATING AS I DID. May God Bless You In Ways You Never Even Dreamed. I didn't think twice about forwarding this one.

The Bible
When you carry the   Bible , Satan has a headache, when you open it, he collapses, when he sees you reading it, he loses his strength, AND when you stand on  the   Word of God , Satan can't hurt you! And did you also know...

When you get ready to forward this, the devil will get very upset and try to talk you out of doing it .... Do it anyway, you will be glad you did.

Faith is not believing that God can,
it is knowing that God will.

Friday Fun

It's Friday!


Need a smile?
"My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 cents a can.
That's almost $7.00 in dog money."

~Joe Weinstein


Two  patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint.  Both have trouble walking and appear to require hip surgery.

The  FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a  time booked for surgery the following week.

The  SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then  waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed  for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then  pending the review boards decision on his age and remaining value to  society.

Why  the different treatment for the two patients?

The  FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet.
The  SECOND is a Senior Citizen on Medical care...

An  old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession.  Like many young Men his age, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do, and he didn't seem too concerned about it.  One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment.  He went into the boy's room and placed on his study table four objects.
1.                                  Bible...
2.                                  A silver dollar...
3.                                  A bottle of whisky... 
4.                                  And a Playboy magazine…

'I'll just hide behind the door,' the old preacher said to himself. 'When he comes home from school today, I'll see which object he picks up.

If it's the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me, and what a blessing that would be!

If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a business man, and that would be okay, too.

But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a no-good drunken bum, and Lord, what a shame that would be.

And worst of all if he picks up that magazine he's going to be a skirt-chasing womanizer.'

The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son's foot-steps as he entered the house whistling and headed for his room.

The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the objects on the table..

With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them. Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He picked up the silver dollar and dropped into his pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink, while he admired this month's centerfold.

'Lord have mercy,' the old preacher disgustedly whispered. 'He's gonna run for Congress.'
