Stitched card and a coastal walk

Well I hope you have all recovered from the Christmas festivities and are now looking forward to 2015.  We had a lovely time with our family and are now beginning to make a dent in the leftovers!

A short post from me today.  A friend's daughter had her 30th birthday just before Christmas so I decided to make her a card.

I cut out numbers in a pretty fabric and stuck them onto bondaweb, stitched around the edge a few times in black then backed them with felt to give them a bit more strength.

We don't usually buy presents as such but as it was her 30th I thought it would be nice to give her a small gift so I made a pretty little flower brooch to match.

I stuck a simple version of the flower on the card with some leaves and pinned the brooch on the top so when the brooch was removed the card still looked good.

Below you can see the finished card.

I'll leave you now with a few pictures of a 6 mile walk we did today along part of the South Devon coast path.

Happy New Year everyone!
See you soon

PS - Since I wrote this post my daughter Clare has also written about our walk on her blog with a few different pictures.  If you would like to have a look just pop over and say 'hello'
