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?
