From the Sewing room

I am refreshed and happy after my holiday where we spend the week walking the beaches of North Norfolk and crafting (you can see some of the project pics in the previous post). So I was ready if a little late to take part in this week JFF  challenge. The recycle theme is from the bedroom or sewing room and I was blown away by the DT pieces the GDT Hazels piece was just fabulous.  I went for "from the sewing room". I have a fabulous stash to choose from so I made sure I kept to the spirt of the challenge and only allow myself to use small scrap pieces that I had previously discarded from other projects. I used a piece of  calico that I had previously inked but didn't like added somes vintage lace and netting. Had a rummage through my bits box and found a silk heart, a couple of tiny pre cut tags which I covered in bits of scrap book paper and inked. I did cut  the image into a circle to fit the frame and then machine sewed the lot together added the little button and flower. The whole thing is only 4x4 and is is now destined for a frame. Thanks for stopping by hugs all Sandra XX
