I can sew!

Or maybe only so-so.........................

Good Afternoon

A little wet here this afternoon but truly, the garden can do with it!  Hopefully the sun will be out again tomorrow.

I was inspired to make a card by my crafting friend Alex, bearing in mind that it's a well known fact that my craft is Stamping and not Sewing.

Never the less I liked the look of Alex's card so off I went in search of some tread (something rather rare in this house).  I could have used Linen Thread but I wanted something to match my Very Vanilla cardstock! I went to visit the lovely Andie at Goldfish Crafts who patiently helped me out with a couple of skien's of embroidery thread - see learned a new word idea what a skien was either and probably still spelt it wrong!  I'm good at this sewing/embroidery thing as you can tell, not!

Hope you like my attempt!  I was happy with it in the end.
