Wednesday - WOYWW and a challenge card



Hello all! If there's no workspace showing here it's because I ran out of time before leaving on vacay. If there is, yay me, I got to it! I will show you a card I made for a challenge at Unity that required some form of stitching on it. Go to my SCS Gallery for all the deets. Thanks and have a great WOYWW (I promise a chaotic workspace next week!)

P.S. If you're wondering what WOYWW is, click on the link on my sidebar and take a tour!

PPS- who believes in serendipity? Quick story: while here on vacation with my family, I joined my mom at her exercise class the other day. I met all the wonderful people that she gets together with 3 times a week for this. One woman is an author of 3 books of poetry and prose and my mom spoke so highly of her that I asked her to bring a copy of her first book to the next class and I would purchase it. Today was the next class and something made me do a double take when I got it. The cover of her book has a tree with a swing. See the card I posted today? I set up all my vacation posts LAST Friday and this card was scheduled for today! How amazing is that? Life is full of strange and wonderful coincidences, isn't it? :-)

When I first looked at the card I thought you braided some yarn. Then I read about the stitching. It looks fabulous and I really like this idea.
