Alex - A Grid Layout

Wednesdays have become our new online crop day, and today was the best day yet!  There were four of us all scrapping and chatting away for a good few hours today and it was a lot of fun :)

Daphne was beavering away and completed a whole layout, Emma was a little preoccupied with poorly children, but still managed a little crafting, and the best news ever, Suzie managed to break her scrapping drought - after THREE years, yes, three whole years, and she didn't just do one layout, she did two!

My layout is based on one I saw on Pinterest and that I have fancied having a go at for ages:

I once again used my lovely Piccadilly papers, and a pair of compasses for all the circles, and my old sewing machine for the stitching.  Not sure what I'm doing wrong but I just don't seem to be able to get the tension right when sewing on paper, but the slightly uneven stitching kind of appeals to me ;)

Looking forward to next week's crop girls!
