I have done a lot of stitching this week but have little to show as most of the work is for gifts but I can show this little bag I made.
I just happened to pass our local needlework shop and of course had to pop in and say hello and that was when I spied this lovely fabric and knew exactly what I wanted to make with it.
I had problems taking the photos as we had dull dark weather during the week, the above photo shows the more exact colours and the below photos rather too pale.
Elena´s tutorial for a manicure bag can be found here and although I doubt that I shall use the bag as such, it will certainly come in handy for something or other as there is plenty of room to hold a lot of things. A large pocket with a zip at one end.
and three smaller pockets at the other end.
apart from the lined drawstring bag.
which I had to make smaller as I didn´t have enough fabric. I don´t think it looks too bad.
A Lovely Gift
I had a surprise arrive in the post this week. During the Pincushion Parade celebrated recently, Rosey at Ishkabibble mentioned that she hadn´t got any pincushions at all and as we certainly can´t have that, I sent her one of mine and look at this pretty book mark that she sent me in return.
Isn´t it pretty? Isn´t she clever? Thank you very much Rosey, I enjoy reading and it will be very useful.
See you next week when the Smalls SAL check-in is due.... doesn´t the time just flash by?
