Sew What.....?

Hello I am really excited this week with lots of news!

Its wednesday and it's time for another ABC Christmas Challenge

The Lovely Mandy is our host this time and her assignment is...
'S' for Sew What?  (Include Real or Faux stitching on your project)

Our fab sponsor for this challenge is ....

So being Freckled Fawn were kind enough to gift us a few chalenges ago I thought I would use one of the little embellishments I received

Sew.... with my sewing machine i jumped! 

so I will enter a couple of challenges
A Snowflakes Promise - Christmas/winter themed - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Monday - At the Movies - The Faraway Tree
My Time to Craft - Stitching (real or faux) Real
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Shabby Chic and/or Monochromatic

So then to my other news!

I have been teaching my son to drive for about 8 months on and off!
And monday he passed first time with only 3 small minors! you are allowed 15 minors on a test!

and I completed another crochet project
for as a Gift for a friends new born
  I wanted to make a blanket that will grow
with baby into child
Rather than make a baby blanket which they most definitely would already have.

Happy Crafting xx


  1. Your card is really lovely Samantha, the stitching is spot on!! Well done to Ash and to you for teaching him!! I took Declan out a fair bit when he was learning but Connor scared the life out of me!! Your blanket is gorgeous and what a lovely idea to have blanket grow with the little person xx

  2. A lovely monochromatic card. Thank you for sharing with us at Christmas Cards All Year Round.

  5. Lots of lovely news Samantha and congrats to your son on passing his driving test first time. I love how you have used the different sewing stitches on your cute CAS Christmas card and it adds such a fab texture :-)
    Finally, that crochet blanket is totally fabulous and the colour combo is really beautiful...a great idea to pick that rather than the usual pastel baby colours.
