A card or 50

I've been making a lot of cards lately as they are quick and easy - if the creativity is flowing! It's nice to start and finish a project in an afternoon, not something you can easily do with cross stitch. Most of these are for sale on my facebook page if you're interested. Feel free to like and share my page. Here's a selection of them.

Another finish or two!

Here's a few quick stitches I did for some friends in the lead up to Christmas. The stocking was a pre-made one I added the name to using gold metallic thread and waste canvas. The bookmarks I designed myself using alphabets and designs from the internet, finished on aida banding with felt backs.

I'm still here!

And I have another finish to show, this one has been in the making for months. I haven't done a lot of stitching on this one for a while due to other stitching commitments and card making pursuits. Here it is, although it is showing sideways for some reason:

  • Name of the design is "Hearts & Butterflies"
  • Chart is a downloadable one from "Love Thy Thread"
  • Fabric is a limited edition monthly melody piece from Colour Cascade fabrics
  • Thread is silk from Carrie's Threads in "light raspberry"
  • Stitch count is 241 x 193
  • Started in about October 2014
  • Completed in March 2015
