CCEE2206 ~ National Embroidery Month

Hi friends!

Time for another CCEE Stampers challenge 

and this week we are celebrating National Embroidery Month!

Liz, our February hostess, invites us to create a project using

stitching,  faux stitching, cross stitch or any stitch design.

Another idea:  circle or oval dies to represent embroidery hoops!

My stitching is actually real and I worked this magic by hand :)

I'm actually starting several 'slow stitch' projects

and really love the concept!

If you'd like the visual version to this, here is my YouTube video:

For these beauties, I call them journal candies -

similiar to the 'card candy' (embellishments) concept but for journals.

They are meant to be flat, layered with ribbons and lace and materials

and terrific focal points for journals or junk journals.

They are also wonderful focal points for cards and tags!

I sewed these by hand :)

Here they are up close:
