1000 Postcards For Peace -- #3 Not Forgotten

Sometimes I need to turn off the news and quilt.  I stitched this postcard while I was trying to process some difficult local news:

That blue flower is a forget-me-not (myosotis).  I stitched some subtle background designs using Salmon InvisiFil to blend well with the peach fabric:

I stitched the edge in black thread as a symbol of mourning:

The name of this piece is "Not Forgotten."

I'm not done processing this event.  I will play with this flower more in future postcards.

Thanks for sharing that. I took a 3 week European vacation and thought about those postcards the whole time. I felt like I missed so many opportunities to spread a little peace and sunshine. I just didn't have time to make them before I left. I am hoping to make a lot of those when I get settled from my trip. Those are something that always brighten someone's day. We never know when we can make a difference in someone's life. Thanks again for sharing a good opportunity to spread love and peace throughout the world.
