OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge 60

Good Sunday and daylight savings time to everyone.  Today the weather was really great here in the desert which  made it really difficult to stay indoors, however, I just got a new sewing machine and wanted to play with it -- that made it easy to stay inside to do my project.  I used the blanket stitch around all the one inch squares.  My little quilt squares aren't perfect nor is the stiching  -- hopefully it makes it look a little more vintage?  :-)  It was fun to do.

Here's my attempt at today's challenge --


The peach and polka dot paper is from Creative Stamping.  The stamps were from Clearstamps - Material Girl and the saying stamp is from Hot Off the Press.  This card could also apply to the Polka Dot Challenge.

Have a great crafting week.  Thanks for stopping by.
