Stitching on paper

Stitching on paper is a free online class over at Obstinate Pursuit. So inspired I was that I pulled out my sewing machine, dusted it off and gave it a run. It's been a while. 
After a long hot day out with friends at the start of the summer holidays we all came back for a BBQ. After eating, my younger two and my friends two spent the rest of the evening playing with a picnic blanket. It seems........
  
......you can hours of fun with a picnic blanket.

  8. Love your layout, the spotty paper is a perfect match for the blanket. I love when kids make games out of objects not intended for that purpose!

  12. Now this is just perfect - your stitching works so well with the lines of your layout and the little scraps that you've added. It's a definite indication that you should be using your sewing machine more often - keep it out in pride of place! x
