Calendar Girls - August

Well Girls, I am SEW behind and have to apologize in the delay of my August posting for the Calendar Girls.   I have been sew busy with the best intentions of getting everything done!  

Debbie, was our hostess this past month.  Her challenge was for us to use sewing, a button and the sentiment 'Sew Glad We're Friends'.   I sew do not sew well!   Panic!!!  Oh wait, I have my Sew Easy....well, not sew easy!   LOL  

I formulated an idea and even had some sewing themed DP from Cosmo Cricket to use.   I decided to minimize my potential for disaster and just do a few stitches.  How hard could that be, right?   Five stitches and you know I tangled that **** right up!  Oh wait, that was after I got that embroidery floss through the needle.   Really?  Does it have to be like 500 strings to make one?   They all cannot go through at the same time?  It made me want to lick it to get it to stick together, but that grossed me out!  Five stitches, I tell ya!

Sew here we are a few weeks later with a finished product!  I hope it looks better than the process went.  I will be doing the last portion of the challenge, which is to send the card off to a friend.  

Sew not sewing on my next card.......

This is great! You did SEW wonderful on this card. You're stitching is great and so are your colors. Love the images and the safety pin is just the right touch. I think you should sew again on your next card. :)
