Not sew easy

Hi all,
After a nice start weather wise to the holidays, it has been raining today.  I took the girls to a soft play this morning, which they loved.  Martha seems to think that she is also Daisy's age and tries to do everything her big sister does, so I had to follow them around helping Martha up and over things for an hour and a half.  I felt like I had a bit of a work out.  I think we are going to register at the library tomorrow.  We were registered before we went to Sydney, but we need to do it again.  Daisy loves reading and it will be nice to have some that we don't know inside out and back to front!
Over at CRAFT this week, we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique, Loretta's digital stamps, My heart pieces and Flonz.  Our theme is stitching.  I have used Beautiful Nature by My Heart Pieces, and took the opportunity to get the sewing machine out.  I need a bit more practice as some of the stitching is a bit wonky.  I made the flower from an odd bit of pink cord I found in my ribbon box.
See you later.
I would like to enter this into the following:
Make it Monday - Always anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes

The rain like it might be heading this way as well Nikki, but we have had a few days sunshine.

Perfect stitching on your card and a really pretty image.

Hope you have a good weekend.
