I am pleased to say that Sally, liked her present yesterday. (scroll down to see the pendant that i made her).
I have just treated myself to a new die "Sue Wilson- Noble - Ornate Pierced Rectangle". I bought it, as it was a large set of dies(largest 5.5 x 7 inches)and also that it wasn't too fancy, so would be suitable for male and female alike.
The edges are pierced, and as i do a lot of sewing on card, i thought i would incorporate the two ideas together. I used some matching blue thread, and starting in the centre point on each edge, crossed down to the opposite side, so that behind the front piece, the threads cross over each other. I didn't go all the way around the card, but just did an equal amount on each side.
A detailed look at the pierced edge and the stitching.
I'm thinking that I might do the stitching all away around the piece next time with varigated thread, to see how that looks.
Enjoy your weekend, thanks for stopping by, come again soon, oh, and keep warm XXXX
