Isn't it fun!
It takes a little time. But, the texture it adds is amazing.

I don't have any of the stencils but instead am using ordinary stencils, bowls, and pictures from the Internet, only limitation as they say is your imagination. What is esp awesome is that I can sit in front of the fire and do it without having to cart a lot of kit around the house with me, and take on trips for idle hands

I love how stitching has taken off in scrapbooking/cardmaking. I was initially a needleworker but only do that occasionally now since it takes so long. It is a great addition to papercrafting (and takes less time!).

The stitching templates are here and here in the shop!

I had two layouts I stitched on this week. Amy is awesome but Sasha Farina blows my mind. The details on her layouts are just amazing.
Both of those layouts went to the rink with me this week and I finished them during practice.
