Stitched Practice – May Giveaway 3

Update:  The winner is Anna!


It’s Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and I’m celebrating.


I selected this piece to give away because one of my dreams came true this month – an art show.

Fabric scraps were layered on a piece of muslin and stitched, stitched, stitched. I added girl using a face and dress pattern found in a Creative Girl Art Quilt Pattern. I embellished the little practice piece with doodle stitching, buttons and ruffled scraps.

  23. The biggest dream I ever had took me years & years to see it come to fruition. It was so well worth the wait. My son who is Autistic was in special ed for the firs thalf of his schooling. I prayed and prayed that we would be able to get him a regualr education diploma not a certificate. It was a lot of work many many tears and tons of stress on us all. A fe failed classes and repeated classses. Extra assignments to get extra points in classes. Online classes also to supplement what he was doing in school. But he was able to graduate and march and receive his diploma last year. I cried like a baby sitting their watch him….If only people knew how hard we all had to work for him to get that diploma….Dreams can come true.
