oh deary me

Hewoo all

I'm late, Im late for a very  impoortant date. Sorry one and all- I was going to show last night - but last night I spent mostly on the bed- I have teeth problems and am about to become a toothless bear - oh hhhhhhhhh ahhhh how horrid to think I even said it but there ya go I will be toothless very soon and lost 3 biggies yesterday and wound up on the bed most of the day/night man it took it outta me!So will you all forgive me- here I am bright and early - well for me it is

I have scanned the two sides of my wee sewng tidy bag not sure if I will do anything on the other two sides or not yet --so with out further ado- there are slight differences between the 2 sides and its easy to pick I can so I am sure others of yas will as wll but I believe in small errors to show that a human did this embroidery not a machine if you know wot I mean!

The original project was called "Summer Fruit"" by Jan Kerton. Jan is a beautiful embroiderer and also smocker-- shes one of those women you admire from afar that nomatter wot she does its glorious. This project of hers had strawberries and blackberries, bees spiders (eek none of them on my stuff  EVER" anyway should anyone want to have a look at the original project and perhaps make your own version of the project as I have done - you can find it in Country Bumpkins publication called "Embroidered Bags and Purses" isbn 0-9750920-2-2

The pictures are the wrong angle at present on these scans can u imagine the scans are triangle shaped (which they are) and the single red rose is up the top of the picture okay I am heading back to bed- yup I am being a real woosy baby but its hurting and I lost a fair amount of the red coloured stuff that runs in our arteries yesterday - U really wanted to hear all that didnt ya??? ggggg I am away catch up again soon have a great day wherever you arae in the world today/night
