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* Shape up! For an extra vote at the end of the month, stitch a shape on your project, such as a circle, square, oval, heart, rectangle, diamond, hexagon, or triangle.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 8/1/14, and you have until 8/31/14 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)1 entry 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.

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.

Here's the next 2 pages of my last page for an album that I'm slowly working on for my SIL. I hand-stitched along the punching.

Here is my submission - I stitched the trails from the dragonflies...technically one has a circle worked into the trail...not sure if that is enough for the twist or not!

I didn't stitch a specific shape, but I did stitch 4 flourishes, a word, and a giant square frame. It costs time, but I love the effect. Plus I got to use my cool new templates...they have been out of stock for months...I was so excited when I finally got mine!

Here's my entry for this month...No *Twist* as neither of the circles are stitched completely around.
