I have been annoyed with myself recently, I had so many ideas for new projects while on holiday, and since I came back I have hardly done anything except read lots of my embroidery books, which crowded my brain with even more ideas :)
I had made a card for my son using painted and stitched papers and plan on doing some postcards the same style, and so to get myself moving I painted up an 8" by 12" canvas, and stitched a simple design with painted papers. Quick to do and I feel as if I have given myself a kick up the whatsit!
The Burnt Sienna background paper seems to have picked up the light and does not look as patchy in real life

I'm always the same after a holiday Carol, so inspired and then too tired first few days and then it's all gone. One can be too full of ideas, I know that feeling too.
I love the card, it is so Carol!

I really like this card Carol. I like the composition of the shapes. Nicely done!

Thanks Mags and Sue, this image is actually a box canvas 8" x 12".
but I am going to make some more cards and postcards to keep up the momentum.

This is a lovely design, Carol. I'm exactly the same at the moment... hardly going near my sewing room....
