Sewing!

Yes that's right sewing - and you can guess that I don't do much 'cos it took me all day to locate a needle and thread!!
Anyway the challenge this week at Less is More is
Theme week once more and this time it's
SEWING
For this it could be machine or hand sewing.. faux or stamped... you could even use sewing related images... just let your imagination roam!

So I had this idea in my head for this using real sewing and for once it turned out just as I had imagined - take a look



And just to prove that I really was sewing ('cos I have been known to staple things together instead!) here are a couple of pics during the deed and behind my card


ha ha - must remember to show this to mum - might make her faint though! Bye for now - Jacqueline xx
