A Sitch in time...

Do you ever have one of those days when everything goes wrong? It did on this tag for the Tag You're It theme of Needle and thread. This is about my 5th attempt! The sewing machine kept snagging the threads, and the ink on the vellum kept smudging. Grrr!
I've punched flowers from a scrap of pelmet vilene I dyed many years ago. I'll make another 2 for the tag swap on LtD forum.

Ros your stitching is perfect!!! I did something stupid last week - I used d/s tape to hold my image down and all the sticky got onto my needle and it refused to budge!! LOL!! I absolutely LOVE your tag, it's immaculate and the stamps are fab!! Thank You so much for coming back after our break last week, it's great to see you again! ;o) xx
