Windy and overcast here today.  A welcome relief to the heat and humidity that have taken up residence here in Michigan for most of the summer.  And it makes for a nice tie-in for the layout I did this morning.  :)

I started making my layout for Anna's challenge at The Studio, which was to make either a pinwheel or rolled flower for an embellishment.  I chose the pinwheel since I had these photos of wind turbines and thought they would go well with them.  They did, but the layout needed a little something more, so I added some hand and machine stitching and that's where the second challenge came into play.  The "P" Challenge (Pins & Needles) over at My Sketch World was to add some kind of stitching to your layout.  

Here it is:

I used a Becky Fleck sketch. 

Happy Sunday, friends!
