Only 2 more posts till I get to 200 ....... I wonder why I feel that is a landmark.... anyway... it has all been such fun....
I was going to show these for June... but last night blogger wasn't playing nice and I couldn't sign in - did anyone else have that problem?
I never managed any Christmas items in June - hopefully this month will be better - lots of people like to celebrate Christmas in July here down-under - I haven't yet but perhaps it's a good time to start.....
Onward we go..... some time ago I won a lovely stitchery bag pattern by Michelle Ridgeway... I have been working on it for a while but finished it last week...... and was able to give it to a special friend yesterday..... (you see she always come to play stitch with me with a plastic container - there's nothing wrong with plastic containers - I use them myself - but I thought she would like something pretty to put it in....)
little bits of embellishment
lace and buttons
french knots on ric-rac and rows of daisies
very cute stitchery.......
(If you look carefully you can see I forgot to stitch the doohickey that the spool is fitted on to.... I did fix it up before I gave it will one of those permanent pens..... Ooooops - but now she know I really did handmake it)
Although done in June this will have to kick start my July goodies..... that's okay
Michelle has tabs on her blog to her patterns - maybe you would like some ideas for those Christmas in July pressies?
I'm learning needleturn........ mmmm ....
Hope you find your Happy Place today
