Late Wednesday Post again

And no I didn't take pics of the stitched bookmarks again :p I did finish my Press Your Luck LO for a Colorful Creations challenge that's due tomorrow and I will be at stitching. Appropriately It's about stitching. I titled it meta because the pictures are about the making of the background paper. I threw my needlework project materials on the scanner but used Aida cloth background instead of mesh for better coverage and the mesh is rolled up. I stamped around the edges and stitched a little bit of ribbon for embellishment. I didn't want to do too much else because I liked my background so much! My folded paper idea held 6 photos but I'm not so sure about the tabs I cut out. Ah well not going to open it that much I guess. I spelled Benedict wrong so I'll have to fix it. boring pic of the scanner so I put the world Exciting! and Benedict is watching the progress. ;) The other pics are everything on the scan bed, stamps that I tried out for the edging and the book I had from the library to figure out what I wanted to do and get stitching ideas. It was a great book and had good info on stitches and different fabrics and how to transfer the images and paint on the canvas as well. I have read a the graphic novel I got from the library and the other one I know is called Mr. O and it's very childish but darn if I don't laugh, giggle and stifle a snort. We also managed to figure out how to get the nook to recognize the darn gift cards so I dl'd the graphic novels Star Trek/Doctor Who 8 series cross over edition. Love it! I may have a little bit left on the gift card so I'll look into some of the Doctor Who books the library doesn't have. I hope everyone has enjoyed a good book!
