All stitched up

Hi everybody!
Our theme this week gives us a lot of scope for playing, and I am sure some of you will be showing your wonderful sewing and embroidery.
The lovely image I have used is from Gecko Galz 'sew and sew' collage sheet, and has been printed onto canvas. I distressed the edges before sewing it onto the partly stripped and painted corrugated card from an old box.
I actually sewed it onto the card! As I don't see well, I needed a long time to get the needle threaded, but then it worked. And I hope that I will be able to see better after the eye operation at the beginning of next year. For the bow I used some very shabby seam binding, and fixed it on with a pin.




Have a good week, take care, and thanks for coming by!
Valerie

  18. This is a lovely tag, Valerie - well done for sewing it. I have some self threading needles which I use especially at night when my eyes are tired. Have you tried them?
