MAWTT - Stitch in Time

Hello... I hope you are all well today... it's Thursday and the turn of Team B over at 

and our lovely boss Hazel is hosting this week and she has chosen a fab theme of....

'Stitch in Time'

So we want creations with Stitching (real or faux) or.... something to do with Clocks/Time... or both!

Closing Date of this challenge is Wednesday 8pm BST on 3rd September 2014.

I thought I'd use one of the lovely Hobby House Toppers that I bought recently... this is an Elisabeth Bell Pre-Coloured Topper and the little girl is sewing which is perfect for our theme!
The bobbin paper was a freebie with a magazine.... and the gorgeous flower paper was a Birthday gift a while back from Hazel.... I knew straight away it would be perfect with this image. Love the colours and think the card has a slight retro feel to it.

Flowery Paper & Gingham Border: Fancy Pants - 'Childish Things'
Pink Bobbin Paper, Sentiment and Reel - 'Aspire Sew Pretty' set freebie in Papercraft Essentials magazine.
Flower: Bo Bunny
Sewing Scissors: Free charm with magazine.

I hope you can hop on over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's gorgeous creations this week !!

Gosh... this week is going by SO quickly... I think it's because of the Bank Holiday... it really shortens the week... and can't believe it is nearly weekend again! I love Wednesdays and Thursdays at the moment... as really enjoying the Bake Off and Who Do You Think You Are... and just saw a trailer for a new programme beginning soon on BBC called Our Zoo... it's a period drama based on the man who created Chester Zoo... so think it will be worth a look !!
Hope you enjoy the rest of the week!
Take Care
Love and hugs
