If you did not arrive here from the Sisterhood of Scrap blog, please go back and check out the fun we have planned. EIGHT days of challenges to help you use up and clean up your scrappy stash. You won't want to miss this.

My challenge for you today is to dust off that sewing machine, and make a layout, card or altered item with some machine stitching on it.
You have until midnight, April 21st to complete and upload.
