Another ATC Finish

Hi there friends & fellow stitchers!

I haven't been doing a lot of stitching as you know from my previous post due to my MIA glasses. However, the ATCs are easy enough to at least do some stitching. And I am very happy to report that I have had my eye exam and will be ordering my new glasses on Thursday!!! And the best part ... I still have single vision! YAY! You know I really think that stitching helps strengthen the eye muscles rather than making them weaker. My eye doctor was actually very impressed at how healthy my eyes are and that I am no where close to needing bifocals. :~)

Anyway, I finished another ATC! There were no themes for the ATC group on Facebook this month, so I did a private exchange with one of the other ladies in the group. Each of us didn't receive one of our ATCs back in May. It's so disappointing when you take part in something and then someone else doesn't hold up their end. So I never received my oriental theme ATC and the other lady never received her letter C. So she is stitching an oriental themed ATC for me and I stitched a Letter C for her. :~) I really hope she likes it. The alphabet that I chose to stitch from is really pretty and very girly lol.

So here it is ...


I wasn't sure if the stickers go well with it or not. What do ya'll think?

Well time to finish up another ATC. The leaders of the ATC group decided since we weren't doing a theme for July that we would do a "Pay it Forward" thing where one person will get a list of all of the people that have participated in an ATC exchange in the past. She will stitch an ATC and then send it to one person on the list, as well as sending her the list. Then the next person will do the same. And this will continue until everyone on the list has received an ATC. Everyone will stitch the same pattern for the ATC. I have most of that finished. Just have to do the backstitching and then mount it on card stock and add any embellishments that I'm going to use. Then once I get the list, all I'll have to do is mail it off to someone on the list. :~)

Well that's all for now.

Happy Stitching Everyone!

Until Next Time,
