So, there is a brand new first ever Irish online crafting magazine that issue 1 just came out this week and my submission is in it!!!! This magazine is brilliant and everyone should subscribe to it-you can subscribe and submit work even if you are not from Ireland-so check it out HERE

 One of the themes for issue 1 was "A stitch in time" so I made my altered canvas with this in mind, I painted the canvas, added some cosmo cricket paper, a paper mache P and sewing themed chip pieces by maya road. I made this canvas for as her pay it forward gift for her crafty space, so Patricia if your reading this please send me on your address :)
 I got the P from an siopa bui.....
 I painted each of the chip pieces to match the papers......
 I added black floss to the little spool and needle....
 I got this cool ribbon from a swap......
 I love this little sewing machine.....
Thanks for stopping by,
Remember to subscribe to the new crafting Ireland mag,
