A birthday card

I made another embroidered birthday card.
It was nice to work with other colours than green!

Ha, ha, Carin, that's ok, no green. It is beautiful nevertheless.

Beautiful design and stitches, Queenie.

I see you manages to slip in a little green, which only enhances the other colours :-)

Queeniepatch said...

She does!

I need to tackle my thread stash, too, one day, and I think there are more green than any other colour...

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you, Janie.

Queeniepatch said...

It was purely accidental, ha, ha!

Queeniepatch said...

Thanks, Margaret. Unfortunately it got stuck in the security checks on entering the UK so it did not reach 'someone' in time, sigh!

Queeniepatch said...

This is such an easy pattern, you can whip up a motif like this in no time. Perfect for busy me!

Queeniepatch said...

Unlike your perfect stitching, these stars are rough, warped and truly free form stitches. I might have to make a book cover next!

Pretty!

Very very cute.A perfect little gift for a friend.

Queeniepatch said...

It's fun to make small birthday cards; you don't need a lot of stitching to finish it. My friend was very happy with it, but it was delayed because of security checks.

Queeniepatch said...

Unlike you, I seldom make large quilts. This was a nice little project.

Queeniepatch said...

Thanks, Wendy.

They thought it was "small bombs" or too hot stuff for someone who is going to be a year older. Very very high security.
beads?Metallic threads?

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, they do look like explosive balls, or fireworks, don't they? No I guess ALL mail is being monitored and scanned and there was such a back log, the card did not arrive on time.
Hur har du det? Fullt upp med nål och tråd, stickor och garn?
