I did actually sew something!

I forgot to post the BD fiber card I made for Harvey....he and I share our birthday celebrations with the 'gang' each year.   I blogged about our BD yesterday.

See, I did get some sewing done this week! I used a piece of Kraft Tex Paper Fabric, which I painted with blue ink.  Then I just doodled!  Harvey has made some beautiful stained glass pieces
 over the years so I looked for a stained glass image that I printed onto Sticky Back Canvas...machine stitched three edges then added french knots.






This is the back of the card.  I thought the saying was perfect!   You may have to click on the picture to read it





And I finished my shrug!  It turned out perfect and is in my bag to take with me to my sisters!  Hope it's a cool day or night so I can wear it!!!   I'll have to have my sister take a picture!
