thread sketching clutterpunk style

Inspired by the lovely Gina from clutterpunk, I did some sketchy stitching on my favourite green well-fitting-but-a-tad-boring-ish skirt. I loved her birdy design so much [I do have a thing for birdies!] I was inspired by sort of copied um, pretty much copied what she did [hey when you find something good why mess with it?]
It was so much fun to do and alot easier than it looks - you really must try it out!

P.S. I'm so excited by all the lovely comments for my little giveaway! [you still have time to enter] Who knew I had that many readers!!! Thank you darlings x
