workin' matilda

matilda (aka my sewing machine) has been a very nice friend lately. She’s stitching on a lot of paper and scrapbook layouts, but she’s not complaining. Nope. she’s being real cooperative. I don’t dare say I’ve told her who’s boss… because I know darn well it’s up to her and the sewing goddesses whether or not I succeed or fail at my simple projects!

I still only straight or zig-zag stitch… but enjoying working more machine stitching into my scrapbook layouts. I’m really into the look I get.

This layout is all from the Jenni Bowlin September kit. That’s Elizabeth a little over 2 years ago at my mom’s cabin. LOVE that cabbage rose stamp. After making this page I’ve decided I really feel like doing a project with some ruffles. Ribbon? paper? fabric? dunno.

I’m going to go talk to Matilda about it and see if she’s down with the idea.
