Stitch-a-greeting is all about the beautiful art of embroidery on card, not just for cards but also bookmarks, calenders and lots more.

Once again i decided to use the Forever Friends decoupage on this one. i also used the nestabilitiy dies to put behind and used APA Forum pattern for the stitching, i think this one is one of my favourite, i am not normally keen to stitch onto black card but i think the finished result is really good, i also punched out some tiny butterflys from glitter paper for the corners.
I loved stitching this cat from the new Hobbyzine magazine, and i have to say a very big thankyou to Sue and Carol for allowing me to use their Nellie Snellen punches to make these beautiful flowers, also to both of them for helping punch out the flowers ( which we did quite a few between us so that i had my own little stash to use) and to Sue for using her pearlescent papers, without their help i would'nt have finished this card so beautifully.
Well i have had a really busy week what with mowing the lawns and tidying up the gardens, that's without all the housework, i still managed to stitch 6 more calenders, i have four more to stitch then they are all done, i did stitch 8 patterns, but i managed to cut two of them too short so they are now cards which i will add soon. The patterns for these calenders are from the Hobbydols books No's 41, 46, 54, i just love these little stitching books.
