Stitching Flowers

Homemade cards have been something my family has made for years. We buy cards too but handmade cards have a special place in our hearts. I celebrated another birthday at the end of October (hopefully that explains the subject matter of the first card here) which was designed & made by my digital artist daughter. It is one in a series of cat cards she has been making for many, many years now. Later I’ll share her Thanksgiving card (it’s much cuter!). I should have scanned the card instead of using my phone…


When birthdays happen it usually means I get to make “thank you” notes, so here are a couple I quickly stitched up.

I call this MeAnndering (get it?)
I love stitching on silk but card stock, not so much!

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.


  1. MeAnndering – very cute. I understand the urge to make cards, but if I made a lot of them I’d have a big debate with myself as to who would be worthy of all that effort and really appreciate it. So, I make about 4 cards a year. I’ve found I can make a small quilt in about the same amount of time it takes me to make a card. Same deal with tree ornaments.

  2. Thanks. I pretty sure you are a much faster quilt maker than I! I agree and do make sure the recipient is someone who will appreciate the time involved. Sometimes I just need a small brainless project and cards seem to fit the bill.
