THE GREAT SEWING CHALLENGE!
OK, so Yolande challenged me to do some stitching on a layout. Easy for some. Not so easy for she who does not sew. I do own a sewing machine but it has not been used for, umm, 10,15 years? I'm not sure that I can thread it. So I bit the bullet and hand stitched. Wouldn't pass any Girl Guide sewing tests but hey - I did it!
This page is the last page in an entire album I made yesterday. Yes, 24 12x12 pages in one day! OK - it's not an album that would win any awards - more a reconstituted one. My Mum gave me my baby album that was falling apart and I transferred it all to a new archival safe album. I copied Mum's words and even included the little cutout pictures she's put in the origianl album. Who would have known that my Mum was a scrapbooker over 40 years ago! (Note - it is a 'no photo' page - scary!)
