Natalie & Amy's 'Stitch It' Challenge

Good morning, I hope you are all well and enjoying this mild weather we are having at the moment. 

As soon as I saw the challenge this month at Natalie and Amy's I knew what I wanted to do. I absolutely love this image and had found the dress form in the Silhouette Store to match it awhile ago, I added the stitching down the middle and across the waist to match the image. I also added stitching to the image and mat layer along with around the border strip across the middle.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! The Lea is very pretty now, especially round the RSPB bird reserve in Rye House near where I live. At this time of year when the leaves are changing it's beautiful!
