My apologies for disappearing last week. Our household went down with illness, and I had to put on my mom superhero cape to try to take care of my little guys (while secretly wishing I could just go to sleep and feel better myself!)......
That was, as you can imagine, the last I have touched those Sew Easy needles and embroidery floss.
So embroidery floss and hand-stitching made its way onto my list of 52 cards this year. Is it REALLY worth the time and effort?? Or should I donate those tools and make some room? That was the question of the week. :-)
Until I made this very simple card and fell in love with it.
It definitely took more time to do this than to stitch with a sewing machine (or my personal favorite, which is to not stitch and make dashes to make it look like stitching!). But holy cow does it have a big impact when I use it in my own way, in my own style.
I don't think its a tool I would use on a 12x12 layout, as it always is lost on me when other people do it. But in small doses, when it can have a large visual impact, I absolutely love this.
So unfortunately for my shelves, they will have to keep another tool on hand because I have fallen in love-- FINALLY!!
