On a final note...I have to shout out a special thanks to Gina K!!!! I can still hardly believe it but I won the Janome Sew Mini she had for blog candy. When I first saw cards being sewn I was so excited I began my search for a Janome. Unfortunately, I found out they are not readily available in Canada. I ended up going to the local thrift store and buying a 1970's clunker...it was green and smelled of mildew. In fact I ended up naming it the beast. I think it weighed 25lbs! To tell you the truth, I really didn't care what it looked like more so than what it was going to do for me. As a non sewer I enlisted the help of my MIL who helped me with the settings. By the time she had a good look at it she told me that what I wanted to do with it would not happen. The machine ate my paper! I was SOOO sad. Ever since then, faux stitching has been my means of adding that sewn look to my cards. Although I have shown you some "sewn" cards on my blog, I had help with those...thanks goes to my MIL, Ang Clow and to Sherrie Siemens who graciously shared their sewing skills with me.
Now with Gina K's help I will actually be able to make my own bobbin, thread the machine, insert the bobbin and make real stitches on my card!!! Have you seen her FAB tutorials? For a newbie sewer like me I TOTALLY needed those tutorials.
Have a wonderful Saturday!

This is beautiful! I've already adding the backgrounder to my wishlist- teeheehee! Congratulations on winning the Janone sew mini! I absolutely love mine! It's hard to believe that you cannot get one in Canada! My DD thinks Canadians have it made because Webkinz are made there-lol! Can't wait to see what wonderful projects I know you will create!
