Stitching kit.........

I know you're shocked I have got some more finishes but hey don't get used to it because it is about to come to an end for a bit...........I am not the kind of person that works on something til it is done and then starts another one...........I don't even want to think how many projects are in various stages............I have lots of projects on the go though............if I don't like what I am working on I can just move onto something else.............

The lovely Cardygirl sent me this pattern Nellie's Sewing Bag because apparently I didn't see any of these bags at GDITC this year............I must have had my eyes shut.........lol.......to busy chatting probably...........another Rosie project..........

also teamed it with a Anni Downs Hatched and Patched needle case

I love this stitchery..............it is from her book "The World as it Should Be" and called My World Needle case............now Anni warns in the directions it is difficult to turn the needle case thru because of the stiffer interfacing but persist.........well Anni persist I did and it was difficult but so worth while in the end........the stiffer effect is great..........

I think most of the fabrics are from the Chocolat range..............

another gift for a friend that i didn't want to part with...........lol.............

Take Care til next time..............

PS I know I know I have been doing lots of Rosie and Anni at the moment..........but I am loving it...........

  2. You work like me! I am always thinking about/ and or starting something new.
    I assure you those bags were at Girls Day out. I remember seeing them - but I already owned the pattern ( from last year) and so I guess I was aware of what they are. You know, one of those things where you think you have never seen something and then when you know about it they seem to be everywhere.
    Of course though I haven't made it yet - so you are one ahead of me. They certainly look great so i might just have to move it up the list of things I want to make.
    The needlecase is really nice too.

  18. oh yes, this is just beautiful. I too am a "hatched and patched" fan - I did the wool felt bag and just love it to bits. Also love the saying - so true, as we are so tied up with the modern world these days, that its nice to appreciate how simple life would be if it was as per the lovely stitchery. well one could only hope and it is very inspirational and keeps the smile on the face.
