|warp and weft, then quilt, then mail.|
I just kept going until the whole thing was woven over & under. And then I made another. And then I made another. And then I made another... You get the idea.
Aren't they pretty!? They are all pressed & partially fused onto that stabilizer (it comes with fusible on it). I will trim all the loose threads and then do some stitching. My daughter who is 5 joined in on the fun. She's afraid to mail them though. She thinks they won't come back.
I'll post more photos once the stitching is all done on them. It will give them a real pretty finish. Now we have some extra holiday cards to send out to family! ; )

In case you are just dropping in on Wednesdays, please go look at my last post to see what else I have done! ; ) My show is up! I am so completely overwhelmed with the wonderful emails that have been coming in from people who have seen my work for the first time. I spent some time on Monday phoning up people who had purchased my work last year to let them know that I have new work available. Almost all of them said, "I know! I've already been to see it!", or "Yeah, we went with a group of people to see it!". Wow! I only put the show up the day before. I am flabbergasted, and really thankful. I was at the Centre Mall last night with my oldest boy and had to laugh at all the hand prints and noseprints all over the glass of the Jade Gallery! lol
NEXT Wednesday, I will have my left wrist all stitched up. Monday is my Carpal Tunnel Release. I can't wait to be pain free! Crochet hooks and long sleep-filled nights, here I come!
I'm linking up to The Needle & Thread Network. We had twenty bloggers sign up last week! Let's see if we can beat that this week. Happy December everyone! Also linking to Esther's Blog! ; )
