Sending Good Cheers and Beauty During Tough Times
During COVID-19, I've made over 450 postcards. In April I mailed around 60 cards to members of the African American Quilters of Baltimore, to let them know that I was thinking about them. We couldn't meet in person and I wanted to send them something beautiful in the mail.
I decided to archive the rest of the postcards. They have become a wonderful record of how I experienced each day during COVID-19, especially the beginning days of lock-down.
