Challenge #257 In Stitches

Good morning!

Jayne here with this weeks challenge and I'm going with one of my trusty favourites this time around.......Stitching!

Real or faux, doesn't matter as long as there is some form of thread resembling pattern on your creation!

I absolutely love the look of 'real' sewing on a card or layout, but unfortunately I'm usually too lazy to fetch my sewing machine from the basement, or just a little mentally challenged when it comes to achieving a beautifully straight line!

So unfortunately for my sample, you'll have to make do with a fine line marker and a (not so) steady hand!

Looking back now, I think my 'faux stitching' turned more into 'faux doodling' with my uneven zig-zags, but I'm sure you get the general idea.

Hopefully you will have some success with the sewing machine, needle and thread, or marker and whip up some fabulously stitched creations......just link up below and we'll be sure to stop by.

Don't forget also to check out a little inspiration from the rest of the Girlfriends, then come back here Tuesday for our Featured Faves.

Have a great week,
