You're all super sweet! Thank you for the compliments, I really enjoyed making them and reading all the nice comments made it all the more worthwhile.
You did all of this by hand. How long did it take?
Sure did. They are about the size of a frozen concentrate lid (which is what I used as a template for the circles). I usually did one a night while I watched TV with my husband. I like to keep my hands busy. I am new at embroidery so it may have taken me longer than it would most people (that and I get really fussy with stuff, if it's not perfect I take it all out). I'm guessing 1-2 hours for each one. But it was fun, and I used many different designs and colors so I wouldn't get bored.
These fit perfectly into the envelopes with the Christmas cards, I included some other things, stickers and such, for people with kids, and even with the card and photos of my babies, I still only needed one stamp. It was so nice to be able to personalize our holiday cards this way, and I know they were much appreciated.
Thanks again for viewing and commenting!! It really makes my day!
