More layouts

A couple more of the layouts I finished at the crop.

 I did some major hand stitching on this one.  One of the women at the crop was a quilter and she asked why I didn't use a machine.  Well, I like a thicker stitch and its theraputic for me to hand stitch.  Plus, a lot of my designs are designs and not just straight stitches.  You can also add me to the sewing machine fail list.  No matter how badly I want to pull that sewing machine out, every time I have I can't load it!

 Some detail shots of the stitching.

Items were from a Studio Calico kit from last year.  (I know, I know, I'm bad.)  I'm happy to say I killed this kit.  I didn't get any add-ons for this one so it was easy.  A couple of layouts and a handful of cards did this one in.

The second one features more of the October Afternoon fair line.  I adore this line and made 4 layouts with it at the crop.  I bought so much of it when it was released.  I love just about every line they come out with but every once in a while they come out with a line that I must possess multiples of.  The most recent would be Travel Girl - which *just* hit stores.
