Quixotic Paperie # 2 - Stitching

Welcome back to the second Quixotic Paperie Challenge. It was great to see so many entries for our very first challenge. This week it is Rowena's turn to host the challenge and she has chosen the theme of stitching. Now this can be faux or real!

Don't forget if you enter the challenge your name will be entered into the monthly draw to win a fab prize from Quixotic Paperie. You can also combine this challenge with any others you wish to enter.
Now this challenge was an easy one for me as stitching seems to feature on almost all of my projects.

I picked one of the Kraftin' Kimmie stamps called Charlotte. I adore this quirky image! She was such fun to colour! The papers are 3 Bugs in a Rug 'Happy Birday' collection and I have machine stitched all the layers together. The sketch is a fabulous one which I followed from the Double Dutch Challenge.

The lovely Dena, Deb and Sandra gave me this award this week. Thanks for thinking of me!
