I made this sewing bag from a pattern I saw in one of my mags a few years ago now. I t was in 2004 when i stitched it. I taught myself how to embroider from my magazines. I love doing the bullion stitches, I have done quite a few bunnys, they are real cute and don't take long once you get the hang of it. Here is some pics of the bag and scissor keeper.

Tree dahlia flowers

here is my blocks for noahs ark. i am looking forward to the next one.

These are some tree dahlias that i grew. they are huge big flowers that are fragile looking but don't last long and are easy to grow. we usually get bad wind and they get wiped out just before they flower in may. this is a very late one that shouldn't be here now.

I had an email from lynette anderson -o'rourke, the other day. which reminded me that the next noahs ark block is due and I haven't even done the penguins yet! I better get cracking. I have not put any pics of it up yet but will soon. I think I will get some stitching done this weekend.
