I'm finally recovered from a nasty 2-day headache. Started about the time of the mini-earthquake we had which I never even noticed although I did wake about the that time with this headache. Might be allergies and might be the heat. And might come back soon, but I won't think about that now. Instead I decided to finish up a couple of cards from stitched winter holiday designs to make me think cooling thoughts.
The first is a design by Shepherd's Bush from the 2008 JCS ornament issue. The lettering said "Starry Night", but I preferred 'Reindeer X-ing' to lighten it up. Done on a scrap of Enchanted Fabrics Cafe Mocha Flair...a long gone company and color now.
And the 2nd card is a Prairie Schooler design from booklet 151, "Santa and Snowmen". The fabric is the same color and dyer as the first card, but this was the painted line instead of the flair. I really miss Enchanted Fabrics. Both of these are 18 count Aida and after dying, the fabric is so soft to work with, yet has really good body for using on a card.
Now I'm going to be brave and go out in the heat with my fingers crossed that my head behaves.
