A few mumblings and another postcard

Tonight a knock came at our door and it was our across-the-hall neighbour very generously offering to share her pickings of fiddleheads.  Needless to say, I wasn't long taking her up on it!! 

She gave us enough for at least a couple of meals.

One more postcard completed today.
#7 of 19.

Today the quote is from Mary Stuart...."To be kind to all, to like many, and love a few, to be needed and wanted by those we love, is certainly the nearest we can come to happiness"


  1. Ok I give, just what is a fiddle head. I'm assuming it is edible.
    Pretty post card. Do you actually mail these.

  2. Lol! I had to look up fiddleheads, I thought they were fish!! We don't grow them in Missouri, or at least I've never seen them. Thanks for the info on donations to Fort McMurray. That fire is incredible!! Z

  3. My heart goes out to all affected by the fires. The quilts are a sweet idea.

    Your postcard is lovely! And, I learned my something new today. I had never heard of or seen fiddleheads and had to look them up.

  4. Fiddleheads???? Got me there.....they look like our fern fronds in the bush. Do tell us more

  5. I have to confess to googling 'fiddleheads' too.... I had no idea you could eat these fern shoots! What do they taste comparable to? Another lovely postcard! Have a great weekend! Christine x

    Have a great weekend.
    Xx, Carol

    I had to Google fiddleheads. I have been around ferns all my life, but never knew you could harvest those things, and eat them. Or that they were called fiddleheads. Very interesting! This is the first time I have ever heard of anyone eating those. I always like coming to your site to see what is going on, but this is the first time I've learned something having nothing to do with embroidery or quilting or sewing! Thanks!

  10. Your postcard is lovely. I do know Fiddleheads however I have never eaten any. I understand they are quite delicious. It is storming with thunder and rain and hail today with snow at 6000 feet for the ski resorts. I have just signed up for Shawkl's CQ May 2016 class. You have inspired me.

  11. Mary Anne, lovely postcards, are you swapping these? Fiddleheads are so yummy. I've missed my first greens of stinging nettle that grow up the country road in Quick. Everything is cultivated here in Victoria!!
    Thanks for the links, really nice to discover another online knitting magazine.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
