Lots to do - Stitches















This is my entry for this weeks challenge at Lots to do which is Stitches.

I am not really that good at sewing, it drives me to distraction and I get very frustrated with it. So you can imagine I was uncertain as to how I was going to be able to submit something this week. My first thought was that I would need to make something and draw on broken lines to represent stitches.

However at 5am this morning I had an idea......

Remembering that my Mam had made me some small samplers of embroidery for me to use in my Vintage albums.

So this is my first piece using the samplers. I hope it fits the bill as I myself did not do the actual sewing.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
