The problem with a poor memory

I got a lovely surprise today - and a terrible feeling because of it.

Two postcards arrived, textile postcards. Both gorgeous.

They were out of the blue as far as I was concerned, I had no recollection of joining a swap - but they came in envelopes with my handwriting on them. Panic set in; I haven't got my machine, I feel devoid of inspiration and I was not happy to think that I was letting someone down by not doing my part. How could I possibly do a good one in time?

Fortunately, the cards came with details of the makers and I was able to ring one of them and ask her why she had made the postcard (after thanking her for her lovely work).

It turns out I (and she) had participated in the Embellish magazine postcard swap. I had completely forgotten about it!  What a relief, I had made two cards and sent them off. Now to see if I can be creative again, once I get over the shock.

Funny to you perhaps. Definitely not funny to me, at the time.
