Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 35

Wow this was a hard one,but determined to do it as it was the last technique in the book, so there I sat watching trash on the tv whilst sewing with a wire.

I decided it had to be a tag as per my previous efforts, but made it hard for myself by embossing and then mvoing all the shapes around into a different order, just because!!! The numbers indicate the challenge and the safety pin says Ideas, which was apt I thought.  I am pleased with the results of my hard work, but note to oneself, sewing with wire is possibly not your greatest moment. LOL.

For those that have missed this Phenomonon check out Linda's blog L3 Studio where all is explained,

Also for your delectations (sp) here is my mothers day card, using Tims new Sewing Room die, I decided to do it this week as I know Mothers day is always around my birthday, but dont know the actual date yet.

So if anyone can fill me in, muchos gracias.

Glad i'm not the only one who found the last CCC a little taxing, but you did a fantastic job, it turned out beautiful..
As did the card for your mum, I find mothers day is usually round my birthday too {mar 25th} but this year it's on 3rd April x

Siobhan, you did an amazing job sewing with that wire-- this is gorgeous! All that hard work paid off beautifully. The embossed panels and lovely colors make a stunning patchwork!

I love your Mother's Day card, too! GREAT use of that Sewing Room die!

Thank you so much for participating in the CCC! Your work is always wonderful, and I hope you'll be back for the next chapter!

it is one more small step to you using wire to construct a doll,

and you could use your tag techniques to dress her?
