Sharing the fun

As you may remember, I was participating in an ATC swap with the Quilting Gallery, I sent mine off to Sheila Craigie aka....  aubirdwoman This is what she would find in her mailbox. (I also sent a small piece of hand painted fabric but I apparently neglected to take a photo of it)
Last week's CPP Prompt word was Bird, so when I saw the name of my swap partner's blog I thought this was perfect.

But, since I know that many of you enjoy seeing my doodles, I thought I would show you this one. It was done as a semi-secret project for a wonderful Internet friend. After completing this drawing, I printed it on cotton, did lots of quilting and entrusted it to the post office. I have learned that it has indeed reached it's destination.
 
In many ways, I am sure that the electronic age has lessened the amount of mail the post office sees, but at the same time, I think bloggers likely fill some of the void with all of the little packages that make their way around the world.

Yes she is 'in awe' I am the lucky owner of them now.
Your creativity just astounds me.
Regarding the Post Office. There is always a queue to the door (ie approx 14 or 15 folk) whenever I seem to go to mail my parcels.
btw I think there must be something in the Canadian water to make you girls so creative.

LOVE the cat -- your doodles always draw me in and enchant me as I look at every nook and cranny. You have so much fun with these, don't you?

swoon....your cards and fabric are so cool! I just finished my cards too. I did not go in the direction I originally was going to go in though!

Can I be you when I grow up? :D

Great repurposing (??) of the CPP responses. I think the cat will also work well for the butterfly prompt - #123. Thanks for participating!

Jill, you have provided so much inspiration through your blog, it might be time to consider publishing a book.
just saying....

I've been interested in Zentangle's for a few years, and I really think your Doodles are some of the best I've seen. Your swap partner will love these.

Hi Jill! I love your doodles. I came across your blog while looking for information on how to make ATC's. I love your technique using your doodles. I will be demonstrating ATC's at our guild meeting on the 21st August and I would really appreciate it,if you would give me permission to use the doodle in that blog post.Thanks. Janet
