Let It Sew!

Wednesday again? Oh my! Where does the time go?

I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front recently as I was away for the weekend and back to the reality of work so watch this space for catch up posts over the next week or so.

But in the meantime, this week's Jingle Belles' challenge is "Let It Sew, Let It Sew, Let It Sew!"

It freaked me out a bit as even though I used to be a serious sewer (as in wedding dresses and evening gowns!) but these days, not so much. I don't even have a working sewing machine (one of which is definitely on my shopping list for the future so that I can sew on my layouts!) so this week's challenge was a bit of an "eek" moment.

In the end, I kept it simple (for a change!) and fished out a sewing template that is seriously underused and got busy.


  1. Gorgeous, love the hand stitching and the faux cross stitch 'wishes' sentiment,

  2. How sweet is that, amazing hand stitching, what a beautiful holiday card!

  3. Wow! That template is fabulous! It is totally set off by that lovely sentiment. Beautiful card, Lisa. :)

  4. well, for the record, you *COULD* have got away with the cool "cross-stitched" sentiment... but i ♥LOVE♥ that you took it to the next level with the glorious hand-stitched flourishes. totally amazing! ♥

  5. Such a cool card Lisa!! That red stitching is fantastic against the green DSP and the sentiment is just perfect. Great card!

  6. I love your!!!

  7. Love those awesome stitchy swirls ... so very fabulous ... so glad you joined our jingle belles fun.

  8. Very pretty Lisa. Whether simple or more layered, your stuff is always so pretty. I'm considering getting a small sewing machine too, not for fabric, but for paper.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
