Let's get shabby challenge #34

This month the challenge is:
Create a Shabby Project with a repeated geometrical shape pattern that is very visable  
 (so we dont have to go looking for it)


Can you see all of my rectangles?
I used lots of layers of my favorite Fancy Pants 'its the little things' paper range, distressed and inked the edges and hand stitched them so they would look a bit like a patchwork.  It took so much longer than I anticipated and I had to constantly resist the urge to stitch neatly. I really wanted that cosy, homemade quilt feeling and don't think I could have achieved that with my sewing machine.
The photos are from when my little girl was a kinder kid and the journaling relates to some of the funny little things she used to say. She has grown some and her hair isn't as red now but the funny things keep coming out of her mouth, so a similar layout may be called for in the very near future.

Grab yourself a cuppa and be sure to check out the gorgeous Let's get Shabby DT samples and take the time to visit the other entrants blogs, its truly amazing just how much talent is floating about in cyberspace right now!

Thanks for looking - if you like it leave some love and I'll return the favor
