MAIL CALL: The Letter "O"

I'm in the midst of a series of postcards for Little Boy helping him to spell out R-O-C-K-E-T-S-H-I-P.

I pulled out my handy-dandy HQ Stitch 710 machine (did you see what I did there?) and started stitching down the "O" with FabuLux In The Pinks:

I wanted some contrast to frame the card, so I switched to FabuLux Cloudy Skies for the satin stitching:

As I've been making postcards, I've learned that I like to double-stitch the edge of each card.  It makes a bolder frame for the postcard.

My "O" card with the FabuLux threads:

Did you notice that the fabric matches my cutting board?

This card is ready to mail.

Next up:  The Letter "C"!
