Monday morning it is and as always there is a new theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show ... this week we are asking everybody to share old wive's tales! Hopefully you can tell what mine is without me even telling you ... but just in case ... it is "a stitch in time saves nine!" But you knew that right?
Our ever generous sponsor ... Simon Says Stamp has once again popped a $50 shopping voucher into the mix ... so if you get chance ... make sure you join in!
Back to the sample ... The clock is painted with Claudine Hellmuth's yummy black paint ... and the middle part of the clock is stamped ... then padded with wadding and stitched! Which is hilarious considering I have never sewn anything before in my life ... if I lose a button ... it stays lost quite frankly! The idea for this came from the wonderful Lin Brown and Leandra Franich's ArtsyCrafts arch project ... I shall remain forever gutted that I never got chance to attend that one!
Talking of sewing things ... I never told you about the whole Holland class ripped trousers story ... luckily my Ranger U apron was on hand to cover my modesty or I may have been scarred for life!
Righty-Ho ... it is way past my bedtime ... don't forget to let me know if you knew what the Old Wive's Tale was ... before I told you ...
Have a great week people!
