And my needlewoman, is she rich too ? by Titbelsoeur

 Hello everybody !

Here is my second project to meet the September challenge at The Artistic Stamper. The first one was  Is my tailor rich ? by Titbelsoeur, this one being the feminine version.

I have decorated another sardine can with the Dressmaking stamps, so that it looks the same as the masculine one, but not exactly the same !  Nevertheless, the techniques I have used are strictly the same. A focal point stamped in black on the background, then hidden when stamping the other parts, video here : Apart'thé


I stamped the dressmaker to a strong paper and cut it out, passed a thread between her 2 hands to be more realistic :) and then added lots of related stuff

 And here are my 2 cans together :

Happy creating and thank you for your comments,

A Few Stitches by Christine Bedford


Hi everyone, Chris here, I have one more make for this month's 'A Stitch In Time’ theme at The Artistic Stamper.  

 I am staying with flowers - this time Debs Smith's Big Flowers and Quotes set. 

I used to do a lot of Needle Felting a few years ago, now it is a once in a while activity, but when I saw this big flower I just had to use it.

I started by stamping it onto a square of hessian like fabric.

I had to enlist hubby's help for some of my photos 

Next came the start of my Mug Rug - Using a variety of different greens

If you have ever done needle felting you will know it's best to keep your fingers out of the way!

Once I had everything ready I stamped the flower again so that I could see where to sew the stamens

I used a gold thread which was quite difficult to sew but worth it for the shimmery effect!

I considered blanket stitching the edges but must admit to like this fluffy finish!

Here is my Mug Rug all ready for use later!

It has been a pleasure to be here at The Artistic Stamper and to practice my stitching once again.

 Thanks for looking, Chris

Is my tailor rich ? by Titbelsoeur

 Hello everybody !

To follow our September challenge, I have filled a sardine can with sewing stuff, and I have used these stamps from the Dressmaking  collection to make the background 


And since I wanted my project be more masculine this time, I have stamped this man from the Men  plate, who has a little tailor look. 

Here is my finished project, you notice that I have added a lot of my stuff such as a presser foot, a spool, a piece of a pattern, and many buttons

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope I have given you some inspiration to

I am thrilled to have this opportunity to Guest Design for this months ‘A Stitch in Time’ Challenge.

It’s no secret that I love flowers and when I saw the Cape Daisy Trio I could see that I could sit and stitch while watching TV, as I often do.

I stamped my background fabric with the negative flower image, which I did by using different coloured inks onto the stamp.

I coloured more fabric with inktense blocks before stamping the positive image. I used metallic steel and gold coloured thread to sew in the details on the stamp and then cut them out.

My original plan was to make a journal cover but I enjoyed doing this so much I made matching pencil holder from an old coffee tin. It will remain on my balcony so that if I get any ideas while I am reading out there I have them to hand!

I made this little stitched picture using Debs Smith new smaller Feather, inked onto a painted piece of calico. and stitched onto a piece of black fabric.  Lots of mark making in the background, and glued onto a small canvas board. 

 We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.
 We look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry. 

Have a Happy Creative Month
