Technique challege at CMH

kisses for James

 It seems there may well be something in the water, this is the 3rd baby born in our family in the last 2 months and there is another on the way! Baby James Anthony arrived on the 9th of August to proud parents Dean and Erica. He was a teeny tiny little fellow, making his entrance to this world 4 weeks early, but arriving safely and already much loved.

Challenge me happy set a technique challenge this month - sewing.
This made me very happy since I sew on my layouts far more frequently than I sew clothes nowadays, and I packed my reliable Janome to take on our retreat.

Being a thrifty scrapper I have recycled some old pillowcases and stitched frayed strips onto a transparency, with some old curtain lace made new again. Some stitched hearts completed this simple layout.

Thanks for looking xx
