Ironic. Just because I have time to do craft I get craft constipation. No amount of pushing and trying will change it. Ends up with unsatisfactory results. I can see in my mind the result I want, but I have spew.

Yesterday during this constipation I thought I’d try and work through it. I’ve been wanting to make a stash of gift cards for a while. I love these cards by Thread Cards (popup site). I also am interested in sewing on paper or embellishing (but not in a scrapbooking type of way, no offense). An Australian design firm, 3 Deep, published a stunning book called "Bird" which was hand embroidered.

So here’s yesterday’s attempt, the blobs are french knots and look better in real life. They’re ok. Not great, a start and excuse the crap photography.
