This card involves stitching which is one of my favorite embellishments. I resisted the inner urge to follow a perfectly pre-plotted course (usually achieved with a T-square, plumb bob, a level, and by snapping a chalk line) and instead decided to let the machine have a say in where the needle went. Scary! The very idea gave me a rash, but I’m glad I did it. I even avoided making the ribbon ends the exact same length. Progress, folks – progress . . .
