sew far, sew good!

...with the emphasis most definitely on the good, ♥JINGLE BELLES♥, as you seasoned seamstresses, newbies and even a few sew-o-phobes all sent in your most beautiful stitched holiday creations. here are a few that had us even more than usually on pins and needles! :)


...used machine stitching in an understated way to accent her sweetly appealing snowscape scene, and deserves bonus points for "upcycling" ordinary foam packing material into gorgeous dimensional SNOW! (& also for the jingle bells!)


...whipped up a glamorous and strikingly non-traditional (& unabashedly pink!) confection of fashion-inspired goodness that incorporates stitching, ribbon, seam binding, pearls, lace and more!

...made a simply and perfectly hand-embroidered trio of homespun christmas trees into the centerpiece of this lovely and charming C&S masterpiece!



as always we convey our heartfelt thanks and admiration to everyone who participated; you realize of course that it's *AGONY* to try and narrow down to only three featured cards each week!!! if you don't believe us, just scroll down and check out the magnificent cards in the "let it sew" gallery! but be sure to come back at midnight when we've not only got a lovely guest star AND a truly terrific prompt... we've also got a wonderful sponsor who's offering a FABULOUS prize to one lucky cardmaker! ♥♥♥
