Tag and Collage

Hello from a beautiful sunny day here at the NE UK coast and I am hoping it is the start of a good week as we will be away until next weekend on the opposite coast for a change. I do have a scheduled post for Tuesday and hope to have a little internet time to do the odd comment but not sure about that until I get there.


At Tag Tuesday we have the theme Anything Goes and still over a week to make a tag of your choice and share it with us or if you make a tag for another challenge add it to us as well. Always love to see what you make.


Here I am still trying hard with my sewing machine to fasten bits of things to other things for crafting. It never seems to work for me so I have left on all the dangling ends to distract you from the sewing. The owl is one I coloured in an adult colouring book and he will be another distraction hopefully. A mop up page background 'sewn' onto green card

Moo Mania and More have dancer as their theme this time


I have two dancers and I hope you can feel the floating feeling that dance gives you. I danced for years and still would if I could find a partner. It really is the best feeling to float around a dance floor in the arms of someone who is doing the same thing. Vic has several 'left feet' unfortunately.

I would like to add this to Digitally Made as my third entry as they have Anything Goes for their first challenge.

Have a great week

Love Chrissie xx

  2. Love our tag, o bright and colourful, and the long threads are a great idea. Try making the stitches larger and leather or jeans needles sew best through cardboard. Lovely journal page, too. I sympathize with Vic, as I also have only left feet, large and always in the way! Hug, Valerie

  8. First, I want to tell you how much I adore those beautiful dancers. As always, I am in awe of your digital skills. You are fabulous when it comes to that. I could take lessons from you, if I lived closer!

    Now for the owl. I adore how you colored the owl and it is a beauty. But the real reason I saved it for second is because I wanted to expand on what Valerie wrote. Your stitches need to be as long as possible so the threads don't bunch up on the paper. I use an 80/11 needle for paper to paper and a 90/14 titanium needle for heavy cardboard to paper. Don't worry that you will have to change the needles. They last forever, or until they break because you do something silly (OH WOOPS, that's ME doing something silly).

  12. Two brilliant pieces Chrissie, I always leave the ends on my sewing, they're usually the best bits, and your owl is fabulous, very Sergent Pepper! I love your dancers, very dreamlike - I'm sorry to hear about Vic's affliction lol. Have a fun week over on t'other side xx

  14. Oh My! Where to look first?! I love your owl tag - I certainly didn't notice anything amiss with the sewing! Your digital dancers are fabulous! I wish Tony could dance too - he just laughs when I try to get him to dance although we did go to a Barn dance years ago - he was OK with a man shouting out instructions! Hugs, Chrisx
