oh, I got off track.

with good intentions, I sat down to address and write a few christmas cards. It gets humid here in the summer and the glue-y part of an envelope got stuck to a card…I tried to peel it off, but it left a a big spot on the card… so I got thinking about how I could glue something over it… like a picture or an old card or something.Β  Then, I got thinking about the black linen that I want to try some embroidery on…..and I got out my threads and my linen and , well… the christmas cards were abandoned… and I got working on

THIS!!!!!

and then, I glued it to the card…. and then … I went and propped it up in the rosemary bush (because that’s what I usually do) with a christmas bird and a flourescent green little knit christmas stocking and there it is!!!!!Β 

so.Β  if you don’t end up getting a christmas card from me this year, the reason is…. I got distracted by some stitchin’.
