Patchwork Friendship

Good morning dear friends,

How are you all this Monday morning, I do hope you're feeling in "fine fettle"!

It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight the theme is "Friendship".  (Please include the word 'friend' or 'friendship' on your project).



I love to see stitching on cards so I made the effort and dug out the old sewing machine.  (If you're sewing on paper/card just remember and keep an old needle specifically for this purpose).

I punched out squares from various scrap pieces of DP then lightly glued them onto a piece of copier paper.  I then zig-zagged (or, if you remember the Spice Girls - you could say I "zig-a-zig-aahed!") the seams.  I then cut out the heart with a Bigz Sizzix Die. The little white hearts are from  the Stampin' Up owl punch.

The sentiment is PC generated and I added some stitching to this too.


Our sponsors for this challenge are 

   
I do hope you can join in with us over at Crafty Cardmakers - whether it be a card, tag or a wee gift for a special friend (just remember to include the word 'friend' or friendship').

Thanks for taking the time to visit.

Take care
Suze xx

I can see from this and your previous posts that you've well and truly found your missing mojo Suze! I absolutely love this patchwork heart and what a great sentiment for it. Love the gorgeous film strip card in the last post too - such fab colours and beautifully made - and your mothers day piece was truly elegant too. Vicky x

This is gorgeous, Suze, and so different too! I'm jealous of your sewing ability (sewing machines and I have never got on at all!)

(Had to search for your blog as your name is linked to the photograph rather than your blog.)

Love your stitching Suze. The sentiment is "sew" sweet. x
