2 Sketches 4 You Sketch 19

Just a quickie today folks.....and after a whole day painting door frames...skirting boards and doors with 15 glass panels.....I  am losing the plot big time so I just had to sneak away last night to the cubby hole for a little bit of crafting therapy and what better medicine than my favourite challenge.
The sketch this week on 2 Sketches 4 You is from Kazan and this week we are welcoming the new Spring Design Team.....wow I think we are in for more treats and lots of inspiration....looking  forward to seeing all their fabulous work.


Papers: MME....Just Dreamy 2 Collection
Sentiment: Basic Grey White Choc Chip Alphabet
And a little bit of hand stitching to finish off....I have tried stitching with my small craft sewing machine and my proper Singer.....which is years old and has helped me make curtains...cushions and clothes at one point but it is trying to get the tension right so I took a tip from one of my favourite crafters.....the lovely and very talented Peet ....click HERE for instructions from the expert and honestly....it didn't take too long...in fact probably less time than it takes me to thread the sewing machine and get the thread through the eye of the needle.....I tell you I am usually cross eyed doing that little chore....so it's hand stitching from now on for me.
Big apologies for yesterday's duff info.....me thinks that TH....is on QVC with Dawn Bibby next week....sorry folks got me dates a little bit mixed up......which is hardly surprising...sometimes I don't even know which day of the week it is.....Well must dash.....a paint brush with my name on it awaits.....back tomorrow with sneaky peeks......Hugs Kath xxxx

  10. Beautiful card Kath and I love this stitching! Makes sense for Timmy to be on qvc next week as the big UK trade show starts the following weekend and he usually takes classes at it, so he would be in the country.
