Some Shepherds Bush Sewing and Stitching

It is ANZAC day here in New Zealand and Australia, we remember our fallen soldiers.  Lest we forget.

Hi All

What a great few days it has been.  Off from work for ten days, being able to sort the house out once more, sew and stitch and have a day or two away from the normal routine.

Last year, about October I think, I bought this wee pattern

and promptly stitched it up.  While I was stitching it, I had other ideas of how I would like to make it.  Never just a one thing in my mind!!  So here is what I made Katrina for her birthday... in her favourite spots of course and lined.  I even changed the colours to match the fabric.  Love how it looks.

a bag to keep her stitching in.  Well, I loved that one so much I have made myself one too!  Of course that was always the plan, so that I could keep my Shepherd's Bush 2014 Fold all together.

So here is mine....

and the original little bag that I stitched way back in October...

Speaking of Shepherd's Bush, my mail had a great parcel in the on Tuesday.  I had been waiting patiently,  hahaha, not really, for it to arrive.  Was tickled pink when the courier delivered it to me.

Here is where I am at right now, and I was not happy having to rip out the house that I had all stitched. Count twice, stitch one Kath!  I think that pink heart is going to have to come out, I may have left an entire line out.  Nevertheless, a very addictive stitch.

So that is me for now.

Thanks for dropping in.
