Not a favourite of Hugh's!

This is a layout I completed a couple of weeks ago. It's a scraplift from one I had seen on a blog, but as per usual I have forgotten which blog! On the one I saw there was stitching on all the paper segments, but as it is not easy for me to get to my sewing machine I did 'pretend' sewing'! I actually pricked holes round all the edges of the paper pieces and then joined them up with a fine black pen.
I quite like the effect, but my thumb and finger were really sore by the time I had finished pricking all the holes through!

Hugh didn't pose for this photo. I knew what raki tasted like and knew that he wouldn't like the flavour so was waiting with the camera poised to photograph his reaction.... and it was a classic one!

Looking forward to this weekend as Ben is home for an unexpected visit and I will be relaxing after the past four weeks and celebrating my release from my job! Hope that whatever you are up to you have a nice weekend.

That was a lot of pricking, no wonder your fingers were sore! But a great compromise for the layout.

Lol, that is a great photo and a stunning layout. I love your pretend sewing :) x

So glad you are enjoying your release from your job. I like pretend sewing - although I usually don't prick just draw the lines :)

That's a great scrap lift - love the triangles as the background. Oh and poor Hugh!

Love the "stitching" although I must say I can definitely relate to sore hands from doing that type of thing.
