One of my favorite techniques is stitching - whether it be made with a machine or tediously hand-stitched, the overall look gives projects a lovely homespun feel. Our designers have teamed up to showcase their very own stitching projects which we'll be featuring this week! Shimelle Laine starts us off with a layout and card, followed by an adorable stitched embroidery hoop by Leah Farquharson:
