UFO Night and Decoupage Cards

I joined the JA weekly UFO night this week. I need to get my mum's anniversary gift finished by the summer and this seems an ideal way to keep going so it does not get left behind and becomes a mad rush to finish. I managed to do the hydrangea this week.

The Perennial Border by The Drawn Thread,

fabric = 28ct evenweave

threads = various DMC standed cotton,

Weeks Dye Works Overdyed Floss

Needle Necessities Overdyed Floss



I have also been making some cards. They are not for anyone in particular, althoughone is a Mother's Day card; I was just playing around with some ideas. I am really pleased with the finished effect. It takes about one evening to make all four flowers and then another to assemble the cards so not too long for such an intricate effect.




I had a horrendous migraine last night, loss of vision, all sorts of weird feelings but thankfully it has passed over today. I am quite pleased with my headaches at the moment though as this is the first one I've had since mid-December which is very very good for me. I had a Hopi Candle treatment in December so I'm wondering if that has helped. I'm having another one next month so I will see if they get fewer after that too.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend, happy stitching, thanks for reading my news.

Good progress on the anniversary piece - will be a lovely keepsake when finished. Gorgeous cards too! You have a real knack for these decoupage cards. :0) I just can't do all that cutting out.
Poor you - hope you're feeling much better now (((((hugs))))). The Hopi Ear candling has all kinds of beneficial knock-on effects, so it's not just good for the ears. :0)
