Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Whew, that went quick

Okay, so it turns out I could finish all the stitching (including the backstitch!) yesterday. This photo just shows what a difference backstitch makes, however much we may complain about it

There's such a difference between the bottom flowers and the top

I was actually rather surprised that I finished it all, especially that backstitch. I suppose the desire to get it finished so I could spend some time on Spirit and the fact that it was the last one meant that I didn’t faff about or get as sidetracked this time.

And then, I was even more organized last night and started finish finishing them! I didn’t have enough card cut up to actually finish them, and by the time I’d stuck 4 of them down, I was tired and cross, so I decided to stop rather than carry on and potentially make a big mistake rather than just the little ones which were pretty much fixable 😛 Here’s a photo of what I’ve done so far

In the process of being finish finished

Yeah, you know that old saying; measure twice, cut once? Use it :P. Don’t just assume that they’re the same size just because they’re a similar style :P. All well, I think they look ok, and I’m sure they’ll be appreciated, which I suppose is the important thing.

Well, I’m off to go and finish these, and then spend some quality time with Spirit, which I’ve been neglecting lately. And maybe get some more needles, I’ve gone through all mine. Well, other than the tiny ones used in Spirit, but they don’t really count!
