here it is October and wots more the second week of October

hewoo all
whoohoo I have 18 followers now unreal considering how bad I am at blogging a post, you all have no idea how special I think you are for being here with me and being so patient waiting and waiting for me to blog something- Ok so this one is one that is going to end up in the pile of "heck thats lousey" and I am going to bury this piece somewhere really far down in that pile of " never to be finished items".

why I hear you ask- well the leaves for a start and then the way in which I have put the roses onto the fabric, the symmetary etc- I very rarely do a drawing of what I am thinking off doing - maybe thats what I should do- I have now yup only cos I dont like this piece LOL U are wondering what its going to be well ages ago there was a cute sewing bag pattern - it was made up with strawberries and blackberries embroidering and also some wee creatures, well I am not one to do heapsa of brazillian type or stumpwork embroidery, but I liked the pattern of the sewing bag its cute- I will flush out the name of the embroiderer and the mag I am nearly 100% sure it was in Country Bumpkins published Embroided bags etc- I will  find it tomorrow and give the names etc.

Anyway I adore the pattern for the sewing bag and I had some lovely rich coloured ribbons- Hannah Ribbons - you know them as the bias cut ribbons lovely,oh so  lovely to play with so I thought I would cut them down the middle - (these are wide ribbons) and play with some spider Web roses. Why I have become noted for the way I do my spider Web roses is amazing seeing as how I hate and am frightened of spiders?? I wont  even have spiders webs on my CQ stuff (although sadly some ladies have put them on patches on patches made for  past Round robins. )So I thought its been a while since I put anything on my poor little blog that I would give you a look of a failed piece lol too many leaves not symmetrical all over the place, all close colors of leaves LOLdont like them.

Thank you again followers and non followers for dropping by and having a look at this piece, I still have to sew the wee bag together having trouble finding a handle for it in the colour gold, either to big to small or black not gold and even worse silver dang it all! please feel free to give me your thoughts on this subject.

love n hugs bear xooxo

Well Bear I don't honestly see anything wrong with the piece. It is in perfect fall looking colours. Even the colour of leaves are different and they go with the fall mood. Please don't dump them. You know I would be ready to give them a home

Whatever you do dont bury this and forget it. This happens to me when i first do something I think...yk but you have a good look at this from a distance. It is beautiful. The leaves flow andand drape so well. Have a lootk at nature leaves go in all directions.

I am not surprised you are renowned for your spider roses they look so good, and how clever to cut the hannah ribbons in half. They also look nice and firm. Sharon B has put up a tutorial of a ribbon rose I invented which You might like. it is also on my blog....
