It's Not Too Late!

There are still a few Sew Artsy Front Porch Kits Available. I hear that Miss Tracy is busy making plans for the release of a new Front Porch Kit soon.I have just heard snippets about the new kit and each time the kits just get better and better. I know you will be pleased. All the designers will be posting today, so be sure to blog hop and see what everyone has to say.
Blessed Beyond Measure is one of the layouts I created with my Sew Artsy Kit. The two inch squares were faux stitched using a fine black permanent marker. The leaf die cuts were made by using Cricut Cartridge, Accent Essentials. I cut the leaves in three sizes and backed some of them with pink cardstock. The rose die cuts were made using Cricut cartridge, Phrases. I also cut them in three sizes. I just experimented to get them the right size. I cut a strip of the mesh that was in the kit and cross stitched it. The mesh flower was made by running a gathering thread down the length of the mesh strip and pulling tight and tying together. I added a button from one of the vintage button cards for the center.

I will be teaching the Sew Artsy Hoop book at The Little Blue House in a speciality workshop on June 13th. We will be doing the front and back covers. Each week in my blog following the class I will post how to make one of the pages. There are still a few openings in the class. It is offered day and night. Call The Little Blue House to reserve your seat.
