Stitched Postcards



My good friend Jessica Vitkus (author, Alternacrafts and maker of the Homeland Security Blanket) sent me some pics this weekend of postcards she's been embroidering. Jessica is always embroidering on unusual surfaces and she's the first person who talked to me about stitching on cardboard. (You know I love those French knots for the pedestrian sign!)


And, it's clear that an isolated chain-stitch is just what stitchers need for embroidered blood drops!
