2 squares for Purl's Grandmother....

I finished my 2 squares for Grandmother Purl!
I finally chose Cascade 220 superwash in a great melon color. Here is the first one being blocked into submission. The pattern is a "Little Lace" from my Reader's Digest stitch dictionary and the other square is hugs & kisses cables also from the same sitch dictionary.
While I was at it, I did a little stash diving and pulled out these 2 skeins of Moda Dea Sassy Stripes in color Crayon to send to Kristy for "prizes" or whatever she chooses! Now here is the hard part. I have to find a post card. aarruugghh! Where? Where? I know there are out there, geez, I live so close to Philly! I see the Liberty Bell everywhere! So where can I get a postcard that will not make me travel around the city? Maybe I can cheat and just find a nice card to send with it all. I hope to get this in the mail BEFORE next week (the post card and all that).

Oh hurray hurray! I love the patterns and I love the color.

A note on postcards: I can't speak for where you live, but where I live they have at least a few postcards and most every grocery store and gas station. If you don't see them, ask, because I would almost guarantee that they are there.

If you can't find a postcard you like, print up a picture of someplace you love in your hometown - or even around your house - write your city & state and send it on! It will be perfect, no matter what

Let me check and see if I have postcards - I did this thing on babycenter where we all sent local postcards to everyone on a list and I bought a ton of Philly ones.

We ok for tomorrow? Anytime in the afternoon ok?

Oh, and great squares!

I love your squares!! The color is *beautiful*, and the patterns look really great!!

For my postcard, I pasted a cheerful/soothing image (a basket of peaches I think) onto a piece of peach-colored cardstock, and hand-wrote "best wishes from los angeles!" Don't know if that was the right thing to do, but it was better than the cheesy postcards at my corner store.
