A stitch in time

Hi all,
I can't believe it is Thursday already (and that is nearly over).  Martha has been feeling sorry for herself today as she has an awful cold and has a slight wheeze when breathing, so she lay on the sofa in her pyjamas for most of the day, which really isn't like her, or any 2 year old I know!
Over at CRAFT, our theme is stitching.  I decided to get my machine out and do the real thing (although faux stitching is fine).  It's a bit wobbly, but I do like the effect.  The papers are a mix from the scrap box and the image is by LEJ Designs, one of our sponsors, and is called Time Stealing Pixies, which I'm sure are definitely around this household at the moment.
See you later.

Love the stitching on your golden card, very sunny and pretty!

Do hope Martha soon shakes it off Nikki, such a shame being poorly just as the better weather seem to have arrived.

I think your "wonky" stitching is fine, as my Gran always said "A blind man would be pleased to see it" and I think it all lends itself to the colours and slightly vintage feel.
