Wandering Wednesday

Real or faux stitching is this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge after colouring Tilda and paper piecing the luggage took ages to do, I decided on faux stitching. Not sure why Tilda has photo all wishy washy cos she looks much brighter in real life. The houndstooth paper found in the bag of Scraganza scraps, the rest is Rusty Pickle.
The box holding my Tilda's is full and I thought I ought to record which ones I've got so when I use a Tilda, I'm going to colour an extra one without any layers and very simply put onto a tag.


Zoe has some fantastic blog candy on her blog, I had to laugh though she plans to raid her Mum's flower stash.

Now this is a bit spooky because when I checked Papertake Weekly and it was for stitching I thought how weird is that after doing a card for Friday sketchers with all that hand sewing, then yesterday checking out blogs found Beates blog and she had the diaper fold pouch on her blog (it was her tutorial on SCS) that I had done for the Penny Black challenge, almost scared to check the rest of the challenges what could be next paper piecing.

I don't blame you for going for faux stitching. I made simple straight lines with my sewing machine and it took ages!!! But it was lots of fun and a new venture for me -not sure I'd do it again tho' LOL!
Love,
