Charlotte, I like taking lace and trimming and using it for accent. I wish I took the time for more sewing. Did get lucky recently and purchased an old Singer machine with cabinet for 35 dollars! Mint condition!!! I thought there must have been a zero missing from the asking price as it is beautiful with the metal etched plate on the front...debbie Found a button kit that goes with it the other day for 3 dollars! Great finds!!!
Your work looks beautiful!!!

Thanks for sharing your sweet stitches! This reminded me of a little hand stitched piece I collaged while sitting in a waiting room with a friend. It was a special day and my hands were busy with what my heart held. I will always cherish that little thing! Hopefully your book holds some of your heart while gathering up your daughter and bringing her home. Bet so! Thankyou, thankyou for all your inspiration! XO


Your stitch book is lovely. The white on white is so elegant. Thank you for sharing your work with us, it is so inspirational.


What a beautiful gift to receive. I am sure your will come up with some lovely ideas to use the pieces a little at a time. Stitch and stash book so pale and pretty. I will have to practice and practice to get my stitches to look that refined. xox Corrine
