More Postcards



A couple more postcards. There's that arched stitch again. Next time I will make it appear to interlink with the other arch. Another favoutrite is the square stitch at the top of the green postcard. I would call this a buttonhole variation. I can see it looking fabulous with some beading and little fargo roses...

Your postcards are amazing. I am wowed every time. I tried my hand at a few St. Paddy's day ones, but nothing like yours. Beautiful work!

Jo, I can't tell you how happy I am to see you back online and to have the opportunity to view your beautiful, perfect and absolutely perfect stitching! I have your postcard sitting here on my desk and I think of you everytime I look over at it.

Oh, and don't worry about being a crap housekeeper. Needlework is obviously where your gifts are! ;)

Lovely postcards. Nice new look too. I find black background hard to read. Tired old eyes!

You do such beautiful stitchery! I think I've turned "primitive"! I must take note and try to refine a bit...

Thanks for the visit, yes long time. I don't spend a lot of time on line anymore just browsing around, Miss you!

The arches and squares are so beautiful, Jo. I also love your color combinations.

Small projects are so rewarding, aren't they. Especially when you want to move on to the next idea!
