To Sew or not To Sew
This is my entry for The Awfully Big Art Adventure challenge this week. The challenge was to make an arch with fabric. This takes me right out of my comfort zone TOTALLY.......I do not sew very well at all, my blanket stitch around the outside leaves alot to be desired, LOL , and the french knots that are holding the pink heart in place would make my Auntie Amalia ( who spent hours showing me these stitches when I was a child) turn in her grave........they look more like untidy running stitches......
I thought it best to file it in the bin and just pretend I hadnt done one hehehe, naughty I know but I feel its maybe better described as an example of how not to do it hehehe. Feel free to laugh at this example ......I am, LOL the best of it is its all stitched apart from the little quote which is glued on, quite appropriatly it says "unspoken words". I feel it is just the finishing touch it needed........In Geordie land we would say " Say Nowt" LOL
