The stitching is done and now I am working on the backstitching. I was too tired to finish last night and found myself counting and counting but too afraid to make a mistake so set it aside. Now that is tonight's job. I'm thinking of stitching my initials and the date on the back as well. Almost there.
Is anyone else out there on Postcrossing? I joined a couple of weeks ago and am finding it awfully addicting. In case you aren't familiar, people from all over the world are part of Postcrossing. You send out five postcards and as each one is received you are entitled to get a postcard from someone else in the mail. It's all random, so you don't know where your card will come from. I've sent out a total of eight cards now. Three have been received, five are still traveling. And just this weekend I received my first two cards in the mail. Such excitement. I never get real mail these days, which I miss. I used to love writing letters when I was young, but this is nice as it is a quick message, and then you get something special in the mail in return. I've even created an online album to log my postcards. You can see it here if you are curious. And if anyone is interested in swapping postcards with me, so drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Now, not sure if anyone else is as addicted to Downton Abbey as I am, but I am off to watch the finale to season two. Something else that I have found very addictive. I try and stitch as I watch, but I find I am usually glued to the TV to get much work done!
