Sensational Sewing Challenge #7...

Hello everyone! As you can see, I am rather late with posting the new sewing challenge!

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of activity! The whole house has had to be sprayed down with special disinfectant bought from the vet. Zak died of a very contagious and dangerous disease, and, because I want to get another puppy soon, I have to make sure everything is safe!

We also got a cow which we named ‘Molly’ and tonight will be the first time we will milk her. Besides that, March is full of special birthdays of family members and close friends, so we have been making lots of presents...I’ll share more in another post soon! (No peeking, Granny)!
But now, onto challenge number six, which is ‘Cross-Stitch or Embroidery’!

You can embroider any design onto anything or make a small picture with cross-stitch! This is a very easy challenge, so I want to see lots of entries! Remember, you don’t have to be excellent at sewing to take part:)

My example is a little cross-stitched heart which I will use as a card-topper.

The rules for the challenge are as follows, so please take a quick read through before you link up using the blue frog below!

You can enter using your blog, or if you don’t have a blog of your own, then you are more than welcome to email your entry to me!

Create a new post (no back-linking allowed!) on your blog with at least one photograph of your finished product.
Email me your entry to me with also at least one photograph of the finished product. I will enter it on your behalf, so make sure you come back and check out your entry!

Make sure you also acknowledge where you got your pattern or inspiration from.

Please link back to Beautiful Girlhood so that others may enter too, or use my sewing challenge button in your post. (Email entries don’t apply)

You may enter as many times as you like, but with a different project each time!

Leave your entry with Inlinkz below – please note that you must leave a direct link to your blog post so that I can find it easily and leave you some love!!

Leave a comment on a few entries around yours, everybody loves comments!

You are more than welcome to have a little help with your sewing (my mom helps me a lot)! This challenge is open to anyone of any age!

NOTICE: Sensational Sewing Challenge will be posted on the 5th of every month from now on. And the winner will be posted on the 6th!

P.S. My verse for the week is Matthew 18:3-4

“I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”
A very apt verse for me:)
Have a blessed day everyone!

Thanks for stopping by, Ali! I would love to enter your giveaway:) Sewing is really very easy, so give it a try and maybe participate in Sensational Sewing Challenge some time - I'd love to have you join?!

Lovely, You did a really good job on that. I only did one and that was like 7 years ago, so i'm pretty rough at it. :)


Kelly-Anne said...

Thank you so much, GodsGirlz1!

Why don't you give it a go again sometime? It is lovely to sit and sew a bit:)

Hey Kelly,
You are amazing at this!!!
I love those memory verses of yours too:) I myself need a little bit of help on my blog, so could you stop by and leave a comment? I'm quite new to this...
Thanx for everything,

Hey again,
How did you get such a nice background??? I'd really appreciate it if you could help me get one too.

Thanx again,
