Now I think I might know what these cards will be used for, not physically, but inspirationally. I've been wanting to make another series of fabric post cards but haven't been sure exactly what the topic would be. I think what I'm going to do is use these cards to inspire some drawings (oh, ouch!) of birds that I will use to create some small layered fabric post cards in a manner similar to these fruit quilts that I was obsessed with before: Tomato Quilt and Pear Quilt. Jane Sassaman, from whom I learned this basic technique, calls it "abstracting from nature".
So it's time to start drawing, not something that I'm particularly comfortable with!
