To sew or not to sew
Posted by swewi on April 27, 2010
A while back I bought an OLD sewing machine on Trade Me, cheap. After using it like two times, it broke in the under thread department. I fixed it at the time (or so I thought), but then didn’t use it for a few months. In the weekend I was creating, and wanted to add some sewing. I got the machine out, and after about three seconds the maching broke, again. Sigh. Luckily my project wasn’t wrecked, but I wanted to finish it! So, I do what I normally do – I ask my lovely friend Louise (who lives across the streat pretty much), if I can borrow hers. She has everything a scrapbooker needs – and then some – and she’s very nice in helping me out!
So on Monday morning after taking the girls to the doctor’s, I went to Louise’s house and picked the machine up. Since then I have finished 2 1/2 projects, and am hurrying to finish some more so that I can give her back the machine. Not because I want to, but because it’d be rude to steal her machine now that she’s been so nice to me…
Here’s two LO’s that I could finish off thanks to Louise:
This LO is for a challenge over @ Magdas. Products used: Zva Creative bling & rosebuds, Bazzill cs, Pink Paislee pp, embellies and alphas, Webster’s Pages lace, Tim Holtz safety pin, Martha Stewart punches, Kaisercraft chipboard alphas painted with golden smooch, misc golden string, misc flower, & some crackle accent (on cork buttons & black alphas).
This LO has been in my head since I got the new gorgeous Pink Paislee pp’s with Mr Courier. Products used; ZVA Creative bling & roses. The roses are painted with turqouise Shimmerz Blingz. Bazzill cardstock, Pink Paislee paper & embellishments, October Afternoon paper, Webster’s Pages & Carolee’s Creations alphas, Prima ribbon, Cosmo Cricket & Basic Grey buttons, Martha Stewart punch, black journaling pen.
Most of the products I have used can be found in the Scrappin’ Patch shop. They’re looking for a new DT member by the way, are you gonna apply? Go on, you will love it! And you would get to work with ME!!
Lastly, a LO for Beverley’s latest chabby chic challenge over at the Scrappin’ Patch forum. Be inspired by her daughter’s funky t-shirt… Here’s my take:
Products used: Fancy Pants Karft cuts pp & embellies, Prima flowers & leaves, AC & BG alphas, misc lace.
Thanks for stopping by, ciao for now!
