A cooler day

Rumple Teaser seems to have settled well, she was charging around the front room with Tugger this morning. I can see these two getting into mischief together before too long.


Yesterday we had rain and cooler temperatures. Oh what a relief. Though it has been nice to see the sun, it does make it difficult for sewing. My hands were getting too hot and sticky. It was so lovely to be able to enjoy a long stitching session.


In the morning, I went to a class and made this card using vellum.It is so simple but effective, and there are so many possibilities. For that extra special occasion, a picture could be put in the middle of the flower, or you could use different charms and peel offs. This will be one that I'll be experimenting with at home.


It was then back home to carry on with the round robin. I am almost half way through.


I gave up when the light went last night, and hope to have another good go with it today. I need to find a new needle first as I literally wore the other one out. I had worn right through one side of the eye. Now to find another trusty friend to put through it's paces.

sweaty hands...nightmare. I am so glad we are all cooler!

I never heard of anyone wearing out a needle in that way. You must really attack your stitching!

Very nice card. Another interesting craft technique to add to your repertoire.

Oh I do like that card - never seen one made like that. Look forward to seeing how you develop the idea. Great going on the RR piece - looks magnificent! :0)

Wow, Jane - Tansy will be thrilled to the back teeth with that! I feel ashamed of myself; I always pick the easy designs to do, as I like to get them done quickly.
The card is gorgeous. I just love handmade cards (they don't have to be fabric for me to like them!), and I never throw any out that are given to me. I've got the ones I've received in an album so I can show people.

The stitching on the round robin looks fantastic, but what a lot of work!
