More little finishes!

Phew....for someone who's still feeling under the weather, I seem to be stitching up a storm! 

So while working on these free kits and other small designs in my stash, I was quite happily adding to a stock of cards to use throughout the year. Then I started to think about who I would need to send cards to so that I could make them specifically for each person, and then realized....to my horror....that I have quite a lot of family and friends who are graduating high school and university this summer! Mmmm, time to look  for more graduation designs... about half a dozen or so!

Anyhoo, here's what I've  accomplished so far. 

The troublesome bunny made in to a card...


...the first of many graduation cards stitched up....just the name and greeting to be back stitched...



And then, using the threads that were left over from my lighthouse finish, I stitched this lovely bookmark, the chart was a free gift from The World of Cross Stitching mag...


...aren't the colours gorgeous? And such a pretty design too.




So, my hope is to get back to stitching Twilight Fairy in between stitching all these graduation cards that I will be needing soon....I'm itching to get my hands back on her :)


Until next time...happy stitching!

Sorry to hear you're still poorly Rhona. Your stitching isn't suffering though! Your troublesome bunny looks very cute in that card and I love the owl too. My favourite though has to be the bookmark, those flowers just pop off the fabric! Hope you feel better soon.

Great finishes Rhona. Good luck with all the Graduation stitching. I adore the owl, it's so cute. What a wonderful way to use that left over thread, such a pretty bookmark.

Your cards are so cute, Rhona!! :)
I loved the card stock you have used for the first card. Is it a free printable or store bought?
