  1. Oh, I would love to see how you do this embroidery, Glenda!!!! To me it looks like a lot of work and concentration, but it's surely worth the time you put into it!!! Love the cute twine bows!!! So beautiful!!!!
    Have a great weekend!!!

  2. Beautiful stitching I'm always amazed by how flat the card is kept !
    Most impressive!
