I love some of the designs available on Stitching Cards, and have spent some time lately on a variety of their designs.
Two geometric patterns and a floral vine. The vine pattern is available free to try out if you're interested.
And, I got started on my Christmas cards!
For most, I used Sulky varigated thread, but others, including first, the snowflakes and the grey on the robins, use some machine embroidery thread.
