N is for ....

Time seems to be passing by so quickly these last few weeks it's scary. I don't seem to be achieving much either. I've been so tired when I get home from work that I can barely pick up a needle let alone do anything. I think it's this darn cough which is still hanging around keeping me awake at night.

It's taken me nearly 2 weeks to get these postcards done and they aren't even complicated.




I decided quite a few weeks ago that N would be for Norwich stitch and that I would use some plastic canvas that was given to me from my Nan's stitching stuff after she passed away. Since I decided this I've seen several magazine articles with some beautiful canvas work featuring, yes you guessed it, Norwich stitch among others.

These cards look very effective, proving that less is more. Well done.

Hmm, tried to leave a comment and it gave me a hard time - apologies if this ends up posting twice. Anyway, just said you come up with some of the best ideas for your cards - I really like this one!

These look lovely - great use for plastuic canvas. i inherited a little nit of it too. Are the threads the oliver twists?
