On your bike

I had a good day in Cheese and Grain at the Craft Fair, but its cold, the heating was very welcome in the hall.
The forecast is for cold weather and we might get some snow, please please whoever does the weather up there, we don't want any snow until we have finished emptying Mother bungalow.
Anyway on to today's card, I thought with all the tatting I have put on over the last week it was time to show you some more stitching cards. These are two bicycle designs, I have done the first one in two shades of blue metallic thread on a white card, matted on a gold card. I kept it simple to show off the bike.
Close of the stitching.

This card is also gold but with my own drawing of a Penny Farthing bicycle, which I stitched in gold thread. This thread
has different colours in which makes the thread very pretty when stitching, again I used the white card.

The next post will be the TIAS day 7 when I have done it and my beautiful gift which I have received from Rachel in the USA.
I hope you are all well, and keeping warm, stay safe and until we meet again take care.



  1. Very nice cards, Margaret. I know they take a lot of time, but they're worth it! Hope the snow holds off. Hugs

  2. Both of these cards are fabulous Margaret, I love the penny farthing, glad you had a good day at the fair.
