    These are so pretty. I’m a former cross-stitcher, so I know I can do this.

    You have truly inspired me. What a coincidence that just yesterday I got happy mail from MFT which included this die. Today I play. Vacuuming can wait.

    I was thinking about stamping a very light image onto the cut tag and using that as a guide to stitching. What do you think?
