Recipe Swap in Stitches

The sewing machine joins
what the scissors have cut asunder,
plus whatever else comes in its path.

Oh my goodness gracious. We set a Catered Crop record with all your ravishing ribbons. Congratulations to Debbie Marcinkiewicz and Retro Dolly. Your creations were stunning and truly plucked at my heartstrings. You're invited to join our Top Chef designers in next Sunday's Quickfire and grab the Winning Recipe button. 

Congratulations also to player #26, Barbara. You get to go shopping with your $15.00 gift certificate to Ribbon Carousel. Just e-mail me through my contact page, here, and we'll get you hooked up. Have Fun!

As ye sew, so shall ye rip. . . .

Our featured ingredient for our Catered Crop Recipe Swap is Stitching!  Whether you knit, crochet, needlepoint, cross stitch, hand stitch or machine stitch, we love it all!

Playing along is easy as tying a knot.

  • Just use a stitching somewhere in your project. Your project does not have to be a card. Feel free to go crazy.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or just add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, March 31.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.

Need some ideas? Here's a whole gallery of creative ways to use stitching in your projects. You can click on the inspiration board below to go to a Pinterest board with the sources of these pictures and more gorgeous ideas and brilliant tutorials.

I somehow tripped upon Whisker Graphics and immediately fell in love. Whisker Graphics is the creative outpouring of the fabulously talented Whitney Beard. Her shop if full of gorgeous hard-to-find treats for anyone who loves paper (Bitty Bags, Kraft and Glassine bags, customizable Sweet Labels and so much more). In the Fall of 2009 Whitney shook up the crafting world when she created Divine Twine® in twelve yummy colors.

One crazy lucky person is going to make all of us jealous. A randomly selected player is going to win three spools of Whitney's  eco-luxe Divine Twine™ in orange, aqua, and my favorite, Air Mail. That's worth $42.00! Pair them with her Bitty Bags and Printables for endless DIY crafty fun! And, for inspiration, be sure to check out Whtiney's Whisker Graphics blog.

Be sure to come back Sunday, March 25, to see what our Chefs have dished up for you with their stitches.
