We had a great time when our daughter visited us the last 2 weeks. She learned crochet and when her project for a newborn is finished I hope to share it here.
Today it’s my aunts birthday and this is the card I made for her. A great excuse to use a few TAST stitches!
Before patching the card I cross stitched 80 in stranded floss on a scrap of blue evenweave and outlined it in backstitch in a metallic thread.
