Sewing is one of my FAVORITE techniques to do on a LO! So I challenge you this month to use sewing on a page or pages. You can do it by machine or hand, but no faux stitching. That means NO digital or doodled stitching.

*Twist*XOXO For an extra vote at the end of the month stitch an X or a circle. Stitch both and get 2 extra votes.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 2/1/13, and you have until 2/28 to enter.
2)It can be any size,paper only, 2 pager,a card, and/or a mini album.
3)Link LO to this thread and please enable public embedding.
4)If you get love please return the favor
5)LO can be used in other challenges here or on other sites.
6)2 entries per person.

To do PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

To link LO's:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on the 'link/embed' words.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

No need to sign up. At the end of the month PM me with your top 3 LO's and include your own #. Then I'll do a poll where we can vote for a winner.

My Example:
Once upon a time By DreaSlee

January Winner:
Music By Dancinirish90

Entries:

1. It's time for what? By Marcilb

I'm following. I have a very busy February, so not sure how much scrapping I can actually get in..if any. HOWEVER... ... I love stitching on lo's and I'm loving the twist this month, so if I can get to the scraproom, I will probably beg to be allowed into this challenge.

Here is my lo. I stitched around the hexagons (which, admittedly don't show up very well , but they are pink..behind the pic..see them now? ) Also, I did x-stitching at some of the corners of the page. I stitched in black, then inked them with white to tone them down a bit.

I'm better today Becky but was hurting all night. Sorry I couldn't see you yesterday!

Everyone can start sending me your top 3 votes and let me know if you did the twist.
Here's the new challenge. I hope to see you all there!
