Stitch It

This is my layout for Practical Scrapper's week of stitching! I usually stay far away from the sewing machine, but for this project I stretched out and headed to my mom's. She tried to teach me to sew in the early years of 4H, but it didn't trip my trigger.

But I saw a layout like this a few weeks ago, and immediately knew it was what I wanted to do for this week's challenge. I cannot for the life of me find the article from which I scraplifted it. I know it was in a Creating Keepsakes and when I find it I'll give credit to the original creator!! But it worked out great for this page that is a part of a commissioned baby book. (My first!) Not too complicated, except you have to have a sewing machine. For the star, I hand stitched. My time with the sewing machine went so well today that I'm thinking maybe I should try the sewing thing again. I LOVE making things, and being able to at least put together some curtains seems like a reasonable task. We'll see!

I haven't had much mojo lately to post on here, but this baby book is helping get me going, so hopefully I can share more soon! The holidays and deadlines are keeping me on my toes!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!
