Marigold Postcard

Our last order was Marigold Postcard, which has gone today to Northern Irelan. It is a “Thank you” card from a granddaughter named Marigold to her Grandmother and Grandfather, so there is a nice inscription on it.

I’d like to share with you some more pictures about making a postcard. After I’ve stitched the flower and inscription, I washed it (in cold water with delicate detergent, using, for example, my shampoo for colored hair) and left to dry, but not to the end, because after some time I ironed stitching on the left side. Ironing straightens up crosses, they become more beautiful and equal. Then I fasten simple white paper on the back of embroidery with the help of Double Sided Tape. Next, I cut a passe-partout with my new scalpel and fasten embroidery to it (with the same Tape).¬† That’s almost all ūüôā

East Asian Inspirations Sal

Some time ago¬†Kate Worthington¬†announced new SAL by¬†Lucie Heaton¬†pattern and I sign in for it, because I really like Lucie’s projects. I cross stitched a lot of her mice, but this new project was a surprise. It was created in beautiful shades of blue color and consists of 12 parts, so the project will keep me happy for a long time.

I use Murano 32 count evenweave, pearl colour for this project and DMC thread, as always. I always buy evenweave at my favourite Internet shop¬†HobbyStudio from ElblńÖg city, this store has never let mi down before.

I get the pattern on the 1st of each month, keep up to date, the next part of the Sal is coming soon.
