Hand Stitching

ChristyUncategorized1 Comment

I don’t think I posted this one yet. But I tweeted about it.

I made this last week. I was working off a sketch from splitcoast stampers. With the paper and the stamp I was using, I figured it would work up in a hurry.

BUT. The paper I used for the base had this pretty flourish on it, which was getting lost under all the layers. I considered cutting another piece of paper without the flourish, but then I just felt like something was missing. 

So instead, I traced the flourish onto the overlapping paper, got out my paper piercer, a needle and thread, and got to work. This quick card ended up taking hours to finish (I’m a slow sewer).

But I love the results, so it was worth it.

Today I’m working on various and sundry projects that will show up later this week and next. Wednesdays tend to be my catch-up days, since I spend a lot of Monday and Tuesday procrastinating.

I did have a little bit of excitement yesterday, though. My Pig-A-Boo card, which I posted last week, was featured as one of the Top Three over at the Little Red Wagon challenge blog. Can you believe it?

 I can’t. I’m amazed, and ridiculously honored to be chosen out of over 100 participants.

Anyway, back to mess making. Have a great day.
