(did some of you throw your hands up in horror!! lol)

It's important to read all the information here....
Our challenge for you this month is to create your project using items from your SEWING BOX.

We would like to see at least three (noticeable) sewing box treasures on your creations and seeing as our Sponsor Carol creates some amazing embellished pins:
PINS need to be one of your three.

Here are the Design Team's interpretation of this Challenge!
(and once the girls have time, they will upload close-ups and details on their blogs!)
Be sure to check back later at them!





And a very warm welcome to
