Wish You Were Here Postcards


Jo had been wanting to create a design that celebrates Canada for a while, and she finally got the opportunity to do so with these lovely postcards. She used Jacobean Trellis Work for half of the maple leaf, which may seem complicated but is quite easy to make. She adores this stitch so much that she used it on the bodice of her daughter’s wedding gown!
