There is still time to make a card to celebrate the New Year. This would be particularly useful if you receive an unexpected Christmas card at the last minute. The Happy New Year pattern is available for purchase from the Stitching Cards web site.
The design features the words Happy New Year together with the number 2009.
An extra pattern for 2010 is included plus numbers for a further eight years. It is worked mostly in stem stitch and backstitch so is easy to make.
