needle night

Welcome to Suaviloquy's Wooly Week!  Every day this week I will be posting crafts and ideas using wool yarn, felt and roving.

There will be a give away. There will be guest posts. There will be much fun to be had.

So, without much ado, here is Monday's post:

I've wanted to throw this party for ages now.  So many of my friends knit, crochet, embroider or quilt.  Why not use our crafts as an excuse to get together?  I'm going to make soup and rolls.  There will most definitely be chocolate involved.

To make the invitations I used grid paper.  I punched on the cross lines and used it as a template on my card.  I marked where each hole should go and then I used the same hole punch on the card itself.  I used twine from The Twinery, which I think makes the best twine available.  I cross stitched the grid on the card.

I used a rubber stamp above my stitching.  

I used Photoshop to make a smaller card to go on the inside with all the important information. I added a few stitches to this card for good measure.

I'll let you know how the party goes. How can it not be fabulous?

That sounds like so much fun! I may have to do an interpretation of that here on the East Coast. Looking forward to this weeks posts.
