Card Finish

I don't know about quick or easy, but I managed to get another finish under my belt. It's a free card kit that came with the 200th issue of the UK magazine, Cross Stitch Crazy. Sometimes the chart was hard to follow and I had to ditch the aida that was included in the kit, as it kept breaking needles. Which is no bueno. While it was a 14 count aida that I put into the fabric bin, the fabric that I substituted makes me happy, so it's all good. 

On with the show! :)

Design: Art Deco bookmark 

Designer: Not Listed. Design located in the 200th issue of Cross Stitch Crazy

Fabric: 36 count smokey white Edinburgh linen by Zweigart

Fibers Used: As provided in the kit

Well, I had best be off. Hope everyone is having a fantastic week!


Respectfully submitted,

Very pretty. I must admit I have given up stitching those freebies with the mags. Often the floss is really poor quality and sometimes they do not give you enough to finish the project - so annoying!
