I hope to do a step by step to how these are made and will share on my blog along with a basic pattern as each one changes in size and shape.
I sincerely love doing this as they are a true labour of love and creativity and all are lined with batiste and backed with dress linen.
I love how the little hydrangea turned out and this is square one in my quilt.
I received this kit as a gift from my special Chatty's Angel Sister Carolyn as a gift for doing her wedding pillow and I cannot thank her enough for leading me down this embroidery path. I am hooked.

Spring Cleaning my sewing room I decided to set aside some small pieces of tone on tone fabrics and lace as well as some ribbons that were left over from other projects, beads as well and a second pouch is now designed.
The overall size of these finished and lined are about 4.5 x 6.5 depending on the main fabric I have to play with.
I enjoy working with ribbon and want to start using different types of flowers as well as techniques.

This is the fourth and final block in the wall hanging that I have to do. I just have to decide how to sash and this and the other three will be hung on a wall. Reason being, so much swag and swinging beads.
This will now sit on the back burner while I finish up, and or start some new items.
