May Challenge, a Gift, and Some Bags

Its reveal day for the May Challenge at Stitch and Stash, and this time we stitched "Tulip Time" from Primitive Betty's.
I made mine into a large pinkeep with a band of vintage braid at the bottom to hold a pair of scissors.

Check out the other finishes in the album here. As usual there are some beauties

I've heard from Sally that she has recieved the blogoversary gift I sent her, so I can show that now, a tiny sewing pocket and scissor fob. (Keep your eye out for more pictures and the charts for these as part of a new design coming soon)

And finally, both my girls are of the " you can never have too many bags or shoes" school of thought, (can't imagine where they get it from) so I tend to make a lot of bags, and since I was inspired to new baggy ideas by a beautiful cushion I saw on Su's blog this morning, Su asked if I could post a picture of some of the bags I've made in the past. I'll be sure and post a picture of the new ones when they're done.

Birds and Bluebells and Birthdays

Hello, poor neglected little blog! Life has been a bit hectic round here lately, so no stitching to show, though I have a "nearly finish", which is a new design I created for Eloise's birthday. The stitching is finished, I just need to get it written up and photographed so I might have something to show you by next week. In case you are wondering, she was 16 last week, which is actually pretty scary, so heres a picture of her when she was much younger...

Here are some bluebells I saw in the Valency Valley last weekend, and some lovely little birds who have the very boring name of grey wagtails. They deserve something much nicer don't you think? Sorry its a bit grainy I had to use a lot of zoom
