Embroidery Floss
For the March Blog Hop we are challenging you to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on
your project. This could include stitching, wrapping it around and tying it like ribbon, braiding, accenting
tags, embroidered patterns or anything else you can dream up! We look forward to seeing your
creations!



I won't be posting a Forgotten Friday Challenge this week.  
Feel free to play along with the block party challenge, link can be found
