Happy Birthday in Stitches

Rain and snow and ice, oh my!  Yes, that is what is on the weather agenda for me tonight, tomorrow and Saturday.  I am so ready for spring to get here.  I want sunshine and blue skies and windows open to let in the fresh air.  In the meantime, I'm playing along with challenges and keeping myself busy.

You know, I do love to sew but haven't done so in years.  I actually sold my high-end Pfaff sewing machine machine that did everything but the dishes and bought a simple, easy to use Brother sewing machine.  Sigh...I've never used it.  I think it's time to get it out of the closet and learn how to use it.  I want some new clothes for spring and I only have two huge totes full of fabric.  I think a new wardrobe is in the making!  


Stamp Set:  Sew Happy (The Craft's Meow); Inks:  Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!), Faded Jeans, Gathered Twigs, Vintage Photo (all Tim Holtz); Cardstock:  Chocolate Chip, Whisper White (both Stampin' Up!), Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions); Dies:  Sewing Elements Dies (Spellbinders), Stitched Rectangle Stacklets (Taylored Expressions); Other:  Harvest Sequins (Taylored Expressions), Mellow Ribbon (BasicGrey)

  2. Marsha, I love your little vignette of sewing-themed items! That pretty bow just ties it all together, and I love how the sepia color makes it look so vintage! Very pretty! Thanks for playing with my sewing-themed challenge at the Paper Players this week!

    1. Thanks, LeAnne! It was rather dull until I added the bow with just a touch of color.

    1. Thanks, Claire! It's a bit of nostalgia for me as my grandmothers and mother all sewed. Guess that's where I got my love for it.
