I haven't felt like creating much lately with a recent heart brake in my life but a little qtea magic got me working. I made this first page "Chalk & Cheese"
cross stitch, paperbuzz and bloom blossom, heart note, pink and blue flower stems, book paper, Elle's journaling tag,Japanese fabric backing and embroidery floss. I really like this page and the photo's of my girls as they are so different but also so alike.
This page "Barefoot and fancy free" of my daughter Lucy on the beach was made
measuring tape ribbon, sewing pattern tissue paper, Japanese fabric samples, library pocket, vintage doily paper, vintage book page and buzz and bloom blossom. Lots of goregous chalking on this page, it is really shimmery but the photo's don't show.
I have some peices left and I am working on a little doll but will share shortly. I have really liked this kit and I love that all the qtea kits can produce such a variety of different pages and projects. Jodi does a great job and I can't wait for next months kit.

Me again, Sharmaine
Did you see the sold out sign for the Stitch In Time kit??
It truly is a cool kit and I hope the postman delivers them extra quick so you can start creating!
Thought I would show you what I made using these bits of the kit
Golden Hands magazine page
sewing pattern tissue
Buzz and Bloom Blossom Mini
Measuring Tape Ribbon
and a piece of the paper doily
I made this hanger for a friend of our eldest.
It started out very girly, inspired by the page from Golden Hands
But then I remembered the age group and grunged it up a little
Tried to make it ‘less girly’ but still leaving it just girly enough, hope I succeeded :)
Ok so can you see where the kit pieces are?
There is the Golden Hands page with some of the measuring tape ribbon
Some more ribbon with the sewing pattern and the doily is up in the top corner, painted blue :)
and the Buzz and Bloom Blossom, I just sploshed some paint and glitter over it, to add some depth to the hanger
Truly loved this kit and can’t wait to see what others create with it :)

When I opened up the envelope holding my “A Stitch In Time” Kit
My eyes popped
I love the possibilities this kit has
You could use it on all manner of crafty goodness!
So today I had a play with just a sample of what was in the kit
I love to pull things apart
Make that kit s..t..r..e..t..c..h
For my first project I used 7 items from the kit
Can you spot them???
1. I cut off the pocket and used the tall library card pocket (one of my favourite things in the kit)
2. I cut part of the Square Vintage Paper Doilie out. I thought this part looked a little like a dove???
3. I used the pink flower stem
4. Stitching it down with the pink floss
5. I pushed out the centre of the Buzz and Bloom Blossom Mini. Painted it and added some doodled dots
6. I cut the bracket out from the Elle's Studio Journaling Tag
and 7. I ripped off one end of the pink floss holder and stitched it on my page, adding another black accent to my page
So why not take a second look at the kit.
See the endless possibilities that it offers and amazing ways that you can make your kit stretch.
