I´ve been really busy this week working on my Christmas stitching, jumping from one project to the next and doing a bit of crocheting again – which I always seem to do at this time of year and then started worrying about how to send Xmas cards if I couldn´t even buy them locally due to our lockdown.
I sorted through a briefcase overflowing with my old cards thinking that I could repurpose some. My stepmum who lives in Cyprus always sends me really pretty ingeniously repurposed cards but I only got as far as looking through the cards and reminiscing all the afternoon .
Well, I could try and make some fabric cards using a gorgeous fabric called Heavenly Pixies by Michael Miller which I bought years ago at our local patchwork shop and had no idea at the time just what I would use it for.
And then some festive fabric, I´m getting really low on that, another one for the backing , some batting and I also added another stiff interfacing.
I did a small cross stitch greeting to add to the back of the card and that´s about it, Don´t think they look too bad.
Having now finished these cards , I can get visiting my blogging friends and see what everyone is doing.
