hey I been embroidering

Hi all I have a wee something to show----- its been such an age and I thank those who hang in there with me and follow my blog seeing as to how I am not very good at blogging.Anyway I have been doing a little purse- crazy quilt- I must admit I began this yonks ago the shape was in a magazine "Creative Embroidery and Cross Stitch" from there I went out on my own and played, although I saw a little ribbon trail which travelled around the block and have used that. (finally my muse has reappeared yippee!!!)

Anyway I think I have embroidered it to with in an inch of its life and will now add some little bits and bobs to it over the next couple of days. and will then make it up, this is going to go to a very dear friend who has been waiting at least 2 years for something from me so I am adding this little purse as an extra bit - I hope she will like it, I think its so me but will she like that- ie purples and reds heavens I have to get away from these colours and the next thing I make it will be well away from that colour combo - keep youir eyes open seeing as I have finally found my smocking pleater machine I can finally do a little smocking - it was in plain sight all the time- the machine that is-- when I finally saw where I had put it I nearly passed out I have sat in front of it every day I am on the pooter - yup its under the desk top --- oh deary me. Anyway I am not trying tp play 10 secrets here but dont want to give away just who this wee purse is for just yet  ...........

Please let me know what you think of it please.........

love n hugs bear xoxoxoxoxox
