First finish for 2011!

I finished this in February, but just managed to get the photos uploaded.

One of the groups I belong to always has at least one fun exchange going and I couldn't resist joining in on this one. This exchange involved finishing off a blank card with stitching for Valentine's Day.

I chose to stitch a freebie from Industrioushead. Emily is a very talented designer. You should definitely check out her blog!

Here are pictures of the card, inside & out. I'm very pleased with how it turned out! It's hard to see in the picture, but the paper inside the card is pale pink with darker pink fiber flecks. (I will admit to having a bit of a paper stash, too.)

TUSAL 2011 - March

Well, February was not a big month for stitching. I work for Hallmark & Valentine's Day is always a very busy time. Right now, I'm enjoying the lull before the Easter/Mother's Day/Graduation/Father's Day card rush.

I had the pleasure of attending a GTG in February, hosted by the wonderful Jo of Dinky Dyes fame. Jo & her husband are the most gracious of hosts and a fabulous time was had by all. Unfortunately, I had a massive allergy flare-up and only managed a few threads worth of stitching during the GTG.

I also started my first counted canvas piece, which will add some new & interesting fibers to my jar over the next few months.

Okay, on with the picture, poor though it may be...
