penny black week 63 stitching

For this challenge you had to use stitching on you cards etc, so the beads are hand sewn on and i've done back stitch on the stems, took ages i'll tell you, then on to my sewing machine to do the edges, what a performance talk about wonky stitching, you'd never think i sewed for a living would you, my excuse is i use an industrial one at work [very fast] so not used to going slow on my litttle cutie at home lol. All for now got a sore back from all that sewing he he Hugs Liz x
