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

There’s confetti, and then there’s confetti confetti

As in, confetti stitching of actual confetti. It’s a right pain!


But it’s for a good cause…it’s going to be my sister’s graduation card. Now, while e and my sister don’t get on (she machine washes bed socks, what can I say?), graduation is a massive day, and so it totally deserves something special. So, I’m stitching her a card.

And this one makes particular sense for her- under the balloons is a teddy, and the caption ‘The sky’s the limit’. Once upon a time she wanted to be an astronaut, and so this card out of the set caught my eye, and so I started it without really looking at what was involved. *sigh*. Lesson learnt, that won’t be happening again! On the other hand, it’s going to be pretty awesome when done, even if I do say so myself! Let’s see how long it takes
