This week finds us in Turkey. Front of postcard:
The Turkish Fez.
Back of postcard:
Dear Ann: Doing an assignment in Istanbul, Turkey. I loved spending Easter with you and your family spoiling Andrew and Isabella. Your family is absolutely fabulous. I am still getting messages from Jon Paul but I am no longer answering them. You would think the man would get the message that I have moved on with my life & he is not part of it. Give my love to John, Andrew & Isabella. Love and kisses.....Zoey

Here is this week's storyline:
I am doing a documentary in Jerusalem & will be here 2 weeks. I am so sorry
for deceiving you about my life. My wife has filed for divorce & gone home to
her family country. I see a future for us & would love to possibly work together
again & get to know each other better. Love to meet up with you. Call me when
you get this.
Love Always....Jon Paul
Well this is a typical man for you. First of all this is a cheap postcard....probably first
things he saw and just picked it up with no thought at all....plain. And he has the
nerve to contact Zoey......since his wife has filed for divorce as if this changes everything
and makes it better.
Stay tuned for the next chapter.

My postcard again is a paper pieced costume of the Netherlands with the cap. Background was a photo from a garden book of a tulip garden.
Storyline continues: Dear Ann: Doing a little free-lance assignment in the Netherlands. Doing a shoot of the Tulip Festivals. Enjoying the fantastic costumes, wooden shoes and windmills. The tulips are absolutely beautiful. I received a letter from Charles last week. I think no romance just friendship for us. Romance must be great in your life....baby number 2 on the way. You lucky girl. Give my love to Jjohn and Andrew.
Love and kisses....Zoey.
So life continues on for both college roomates. See you all next week.

This week finds us in Canada. I did my usual research about Canada and found many interesting facts. I loved the flag and thought about doing a flag....but decided to get back to my fashion theme and decided to check out the uniform of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
So my story is about a photo shoot of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and I decided to paper piece a uniform.
Then I cut out a pair of pants. Next was the uniform jacket. I then added the belt, buttons, pockets and the neckline and shoulder emblems were added. Each piece was inked for details and all edges were inked.
Last item was the hat. I made several attempts at adding a face to the uniform but I failed miserably with the faces so I went with the fashion concept. Placed uniform on scrapbook paper and did a tag with twine.
I was very happy with my paperpieced uniform. I know I need to practice making faces for future reference.
Story continues with:
I love my job...in Canada doing a special about the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The men
are fantastic to work with, love what they do & are very handsome. I am so over that other guy.
I have a date with Charles who is one of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the shoot.
We shall see what happens. Arm is all healed back to my old self. Give my love to John and
Andrew. Love and kisses ...Zoey.
Ten postcards down and only 42 more to go.

landscape. My postcard was done by paper piecing all of the items, a little paint and a little stickles. Front:
John just wanted to let you know how much I love you. Thanks for taking care of Andrew so I could come to Switzerland with Zoey to the ski resort to help her mend her broken heart after learning Jon Paul was married with 3 children. She fell while skiing and broke her arm so now I am on mended heart and mended arm duty. Give Andrew a hug and a kiss for me. See you soon. Love and Kisses Ann.
Another week completed......we have to wait and see where we go next.
