In Stitches and Blog Candy Winner

Our featured ingredient for our Catered Crop Recipe Swap is Stitching!  Whether you knit, crochet, needlepoint, cross stitch, hand stitch or machine stitch, we love it all!

I have lots of stitching going on today...


I created this card casing it from a card I had seen on this post here:  Owl
I added lots and lots of stitching.  Here is the inside:
Owl Inside

I also created a little treat bag to go along with my card.  I used Whisper Graphics Bitty Bags..
The little flap tucks down under the owls head.

A few weeks ago my daughter and I were busy sewing.. She has a friend that loves owls so we bought a cheap fabric bag at Walmart and then quilted this owl  for the bag.  We also made her an owl coffee cozy..

So I think I fulfilled the stitching requirements.  Now if you would like to join the Catered Crop here are the details. 
One of our participants week will win the following package: 
One crazy lucky person is going to make all of us jealous. A randomly selected player is going to win three spools of Whitney's  eco-luxe Divine Twine™ in orange, aqua, and my favorite, Air Mail. That's worth $42.00! Pair them with her Bitty Bags and Printables for endless DIY crafty fun! And, for inspiration, be sure to check out Whtiney's Whisker Graphics blog.
Head on over to The Catered Crop for all the information:  Recipe Swap
