Dare Mr. Canard, the clever needleworker behind this envelope is my husband...I married the cunning and wily Odysseus. Yes, the scissors were a warning to patiently unpick the sewing rathwe than cut open.

Post Scriptum: Oh, I think that I finally figured out the obvious... & that is: don't use"no scissors" to cut the cloth envelope open.

31.01.19 Dare Ms. MaoMao, .... just wanna join in on the hand clapping. (Bravo!!!...& I really don't know the first thing about this---I can't even sew a button on.) ...   & what does that mean?....the notation at the bottom corner "No Scissors". Does it mean he cut the fabric with a knife??? & you say "he embroidered all sorts of amazing, strange things".  Is there any chance we can see more???? SinCelery, Richard Canard

Debra  I taught my husband to embroider the year before last. He was sailing around the world, and during the long hours at sea he embroidered all sorts of amazing, strange things, inluding this letter in a cloth envelope.

We have since been reunited. I have had to shoo him away from my thread stash, he has been snooping around there, lately.

I am in LOVE with this embroidered  “envelope”.  Beautiful, amazing, creative details.
