The ramblings from a small quilt shop on the South Islands West Coast of New Zealand

Show and tell

   As I said I would here are the other two little stitcheries that I got finished, both were done in stem stitch, which is my preferred stitch I find that I get into an easy rhythm and the work just flows. Then it was just a case of adding a little bit of lace and fabric and job done.

The following two photos a friend suggested that I include on my blogspot.  they are of two project bags that have six pockets on the outside and a drawstring closure.  The inside also has pockets of the same size so it becomes quite a useful bag.  The stitcheries I think are taken from the Red Brolly books and lend themselves quite nicely to this sort of project and because they are rather small in no time at all they are all done.  Fabrics I chose were ticking and homespun, both I think are under used fabrics but they have a charm all of their own.

Now I have the job again of sorting out that sewing room, having made the decision to really clean out all those little things that have been stashed for years, not fabric of course. Goodness knows what treasures I will find! Have a great day everyone.
