*New on the blog* Hand stitched kites… Why oh Why?

Why oh why did I pick up a needle and thread. While most of you could have knocked this out in a matter of minutes, it took me over an hour to hand stitch these two kites… And they aren’t even that good! Grr! I couldn’t NOT post them on the blog because I worked so hard of those dinky little things, I wanted to show them off but at the same time. Really? Did I just make this? I paper pierced the kite shapes and stitched with DMC floss and added buttons in the center…  Took the cloud image, stamped the sentiment, added some polka dots of course and adhered  with a pop dot….. I added a score line across the top for a finishing touch, but it didn’t photograph well. I layered two PTI ribbons that matched the color of the floss I used for the kites… The Poppy Seed Challenge challenge was to use spring moss, polka dots and buttons!!! So, there it is. And folks, this is why I use a professional tailor and dare not try to hem or alter any of my clothes!!!! LOL! Have a great Wednesday!!!!!
