Butterfly On My Heart

And here is No 4 - Butterfly On My Heart. I haven't decided what I'm going to do with the four blocks yet, so watch this space.

Bee On My Heart

This is the third of my On My Heart BOM blocks. I'm now working on the fourth - Butterfly On My Heart, and I'll post a photo of that soon.

Pink Bag (plus rose deco ...)

I thought the bag needed some decoration, so I made a rose from the Tilda book. I think it looks so much better now.

In the top photo you can see just how small the bag is!

Pink Bag

Oh dear, I've spent two days hand sewing this bag (from one of the Tilda books), but I cut the bottom corners in the wrong direction, so the bag won't stand up on its own! Never mind, I can still put things in it.

Here Kitty Scissors Cases

I finally finished these two. Instead of using herringbone stitch round the edges, I chickened out and used blanket stitch instead. One is for me, and one for Ang. The pattern was a free pattern from Lynette Anderson's blog.

Scissors Dolly

Finished the Scissors Dolly, which is from the same Stitching Cow pattern as the Cottage Pincushion. I tried curly doll hair ... didn't like it ... Then I tried the mohair I use to wig miniature dolls ... too "perfect" ... Then I tried this braid (Bunka?), which when unravelled looked OK. There is a pocket on the back of the dolly, to hold a pair of embroidery scissors.
