DLP - journal 52 - and more

DLP add embroidery or sewing floss

I've recycled a "new sewing machine" stitches try out piece....cut into ATC sized pieces.
There is some hand sewing as well as machine, beads, lace, leather,buttonholes

And I could not stop at just one.... I had this piece sitting in a drawer waiting to be finished.... It was a sample from a course a few years ago! The needle had rusted into the fabric so I trimmed the felt background down and mounted the stitching (woven wheels, buttonhole wheels, French knots all in a variegated thread) onto a piebe of decorated paper that I made a few weeks ago.
The fabric area is the size of a twinchie!

Book inspired....I love books and read a lot but my favourites are encyclopaedias, dictionaries and atlas! This is my page for this week...

And finally my twinchie for this week. SMILE


  1. I found you and just joined. I didn't realize where you were! Grief, I want to visit Scotland to see my ancestor castle. . .no, they took the roof off, so it's not viable, but still it belongs to Mine. I have a map of Scotland on my wall by the door, thinking I'll get there sooner. My blog is Blessings, Janet

  2. Hi Sally, so much to look at today - fabulous stitches and a great way to use the 'try out' piece, Love the 52 page and that twinchie - really did make me smile.
