Stitching on Cards





I am so glad to have my sewing machine back in working condition. I finally can do some sewing. One of my blog buddies Stephanie was kind of enough to send me some penny black images, as I dont own any, Thank you so much!!! I dont know the name of this stamp set. I love them and they are on my wish list.

I stitched on this card using the PTI cardstock because of its weight. Its very heavy and handles stitches well. I used black straight stitch and a yellow scallop stitch. I love the way embrodiery thread looks on cards. It has a nice shine to it.
