Just a little Stitching

I’m slowly working on the front of  my bag which I started at the Nostalgia Class using doilies last week.   Perhaps I’ll add a few pretty blue flowers on this corner of the bag, I thought.  The flowers were machine appliquéd in place, and I added a button in the centre - then just a little hand stitching to link the flowers together.  The front of my bag needs a lot more stitching, and I’ll be doing “big stitch” quilting using perle cotton.

But I needed to take a trip to the quilt shop and buy some more thread for the couple of stitchery projects I have on the go.  This is what I bought yesterday.

I’ve also prepared the bag back and the straps so I’ll be ready to assemble the bag when I finally get the front finished.  So that’s another step done.  Being creative certainly takes time, but is most enjoyable.  I tend to flit from one project to another – guess most crafters are like that?

Looking so good Jenny, lovely thread shades, and having the back and straps all quilted, what a saving when putting it together. Wet and cold up here again.

It’s always nice to have an excuse to go to the quilt shop. :-)

Hello Jenny,

A lovely project you are working on, the blue flowers are so lovely.

Happy days.

Your bag is coming along nicely; I love your flowers. Yes, isn't it interesting that no matter how much we have on hand, we still need just a couple more things. As you know I always have several projects at a time...WIP.

Your bag is going to be lovely. I'm looking forward to what else you add to it.

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party.
