Last week, I was busy working on a gift for a friend. After spending a year only knitting, I had forgotten how slow cross-stitch can seem in comparison. I also forgot to get a very good idea of what size the canvas works out to based on the Aida. At any rate, I wanted to make a small wall hanging for a friend’s birthday, and I ended up with a card-sized canvas instead.
I am not the best papercraft person in the world, but Sister-in-Law is, and she was looking for a gift idea for our friend. We decided to help each other out a bit, and she made the card to frame my canvas. It turned out quite nicely for two women a bit confused about what to do next, but I think our friend was happy with the result.
Here is the card, glue still damp…
At any rate, we had a great weekend together, talking about knitting, stitching, and crafting, all while celebrating our friend’s birthday.
