{ isn't it pretty? }


Here's a lovely card I received in the mail last week from Sarah. Thanks, Sarah!


Bend-the-Rules Sewing by Amy Karol (Paperback - Clarkson Potter)


  1. Wonderful card - is it embroidery or counted cross stitch? I can't tell, just know that I like it! blessings, marlene

  2. Hi Cindy, I love your header photo... great colors!
    No... I got the sewing box here and it must have been before Christmas because it's been waiting to get fixed up for quite a while! I have a larger one like it (not Singer though)in a dark brown that I got at Madison's Auction quite a few years ago. I think I'll display the small on top of the large.
    Take care, Kimberly

  3. You're welcome for the card Cindy... you are so kind to post it!
    And Marlene, I love it that you think I put that much work into this card... I totally didn't!! It is called "kissing" and it is a stamping technique. I inked up a background stamp (Canvas pattern) and then used that for my ink pad (the 2 stamps "kissed!") instead of putting my solid floral stamp into a regular ink pad! Easy, very very easy!!
