A pleasant days stitching.

I'm working on samples for a workshop that I wll be teaching next January so here is a pretty bag that I finished today,

It would make a pretty lingerie bag or to keep your special things.
I love this picture so surrounded it in fabric roses, stitching, beadwork and lace.


                                              Carried the embellishing on to the back.
                                   I'm pleased with the result and had a lovely day making it.

Pretty pouches

I made these pretty pouches today, just the thing to keep loose change or your keys or even your secret pocket money!
I made lots of different roses to go on the flap. Some muslin, some ribbon,some in the same fabric and even a couple from silk rods.
I do love pretty!!!

What would you keep in yours???

I'm nearly ready for the party.

I'm as ready as I'm going to be after moving house ten days ago.

Here's my cottage in the beautiful Somerset countryside in South West England.

My sitting room looks lovely in the morning when the sun gives this pretty effect.
I love to sit in the window seat and chat on the phone. See how thick the walls are.
I've just about been able to start some work upstairs but it's going to be a while before everything has a place, meanwhile my stock is in these boxes.


My wonderful Bernina sewing machine is fresh from it's annual service all set up and ready to stitch.



                                                My cutting board is already cluttered....


and the iron is at the ready.

So without further ado Welcome to my new home and Thank you for taking a peak at my creative space.

Happy birthday to Karens Where Bloggers Create party.
