I received a RAK in the mail on Friday from Kim M. She is celebrating her 60th birthday by sending out RAK to other stitchers. What a wonderful idea! She also has a great blog http://WisdomwithNeedleandThread.blogspot.com Thanks Kim M. This is what I received
She used the horse theme for me as she knows I enjoy watching my granddaughter ride.
The little box is hand painted by her with horseshoes and the top is crossstitched. I love all she sent me and will put it to get use.
I am trying a new technique for me in making handmade greeting cards. I am trying the blending effect with markers. My first try turned out ok, but I am hoping to improve with time. I had bought a card that I loved and decided I wanted to try the idea. Here is my result along with the stamp and markers I used.
This is the two cards I made for my grandchildren to give their Mom on Mother's Day
I have also stitched on WIPs and completed another piece in my Hometown Holiday Series by LittleHouse Needleworks.
Next to start is Main Street Station.
